Laura Croft (“Holly’s World,” Night School 4 Girls at the Excalibur) played the part of a princess, glittering tiara and all, in a vintage-inspired turquoise-and-gold metallic dress with matching gold-glitter, peep-toe stilettos all designed by Betsey Johnson as she celebrated her birthday at Sugar Factory and Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at the Paris on Friday.
“I like to keep it simple,” Croft said about selecting her birthday ensemble. The reality TV starlet and Playboy Playmate was joined by her boyfriend Clint Scott of Excalibur headliners Thunder From Down Under -- who proved that real men wear pink -- and friends to kick off her belated birthday weekend (her birthday is Jan. 30).
At Chateau, Croft was presented with a pink, Barbie-inspired, three-tiered cake adorned with a large pink bow on top as the crowd sang “Happy Birthday.” Croft and her group were in a VIP booth overlooking the dance floor and partied until the early hours of the morning to the sounds of Chateau resident DJ Casanova.
Before Chateau, Croft and her group dined at Sugar Factory American Brasserie, enjoying Monte Cristo sandwiches, bruschetta, steak frites, Dom Perignon and red velvet martinis. When asked what she wanted most for her birthday, Croft said that a Hello Kitty bicycle was at the top of her list. Afterward at the retail store, Croft chose gummy worms, chocolate-covered pretzels and Couture Pops as her post-dinner goodies.
Also at Sugar Factory: UFC stars Frank Mir and Jon “Bones” Jones, plus Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones; they devoured a “King Kong” ice cream sundae and “Make a Wish” milkshakes. Thanks to Ed Graff of Stardust Fallout for his photo gallery of the birthday girl at the Paris hotspots.
