Rocking the red carpet first at the mega-club were Montag and Pratt, who later hosted the festivities at Christian Audigier in Treasure Island. Next to arrive were Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Robert Kardashian, who, joined by mother Kris Jenner, dazzled shutterbugs as they strutted their stuff before heading to LAX for the night. Pure’s hosts for the exhilarating evening, celebrity sweethearts and new parents Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz, were soon to follow, full of excitement for their first night on the town since the birth of baby boy Bronx Mowgli.

Once inside the club, the darling duo and a group of friends took to the main VIP stage and settled into the white leather VIP bed next to the DJ booth where DJ Hollywood spun a mesmerizing mix keeping clubgoers on their feet all night long. The anticipation throughout the whole club grew as it got closer and closer to midnight, when Ashlee and Pete took charge on the microphone and led Pure and all its partiers through the official countdown to 2009.

After spending the last few seconds of the year inside the main room of Sin City’s sexiest spot, the pair made their way to Pure’s famous terrace to lead a rooftop champagne toast under the bright lights of Las Vegas. After sharing a few passionate New Year’s kisses and feeding pieces of cake to each other, the twosome retreated back inside to their VIP table, where they drank Grey Goose cocktails and danced the night away.
