Don’t think for one second that Sin City skips over the holidays. After all, it is arguably the best place in the world to get “merry.” (Pass the eggnog.) So what that there’s no snow in the desert that is “glist’nin.” It is still easy to get lost in the beautiful sight that makes us happy tonight: the winter wonderland of Vegas in December.
Caesars Chalet ice-skating rink
Skate into winter with Caesars Palace’s first-ever ice-skating rink, open now until January 20th. A wonderland of falling snow (desert? what desert?) and lodge décor, the rink offers the most traditional wintery of activities under the bright lights of the Strip. The Chalet, next to the Absinthe tent in the front of the hotel, is open daily from 11 am to 12:30 am and serves up warm beverages, from hot chocolate to stiff hot toddies and toasted cinnamon shots.
Christmas décor at Rao’s
Rao’s, at Caesars Palace, loves Christmas so much that it keeps its decorations up all year. The “Rao’s room” dining room is a replica of the original Harlem location, where current owner Frank Pellegrino’s Aunt Anna once ruled the kitchen. Years ago, Anna, a strong Italian woman Woody Allen once based a character on, decided that she wasn’t un-decorating, and a year-round ode to Christmas they became, with garlands, lights, wreaths, and big red velvet bows. Only have time for a drink? The décor also accents the bar.
Window decorations at Forum Shops
It’s not December without power-shopping, and Forum Shops does it right, with festive window displays that hark the pre-online good ol’ days of Miracle on 34th Street-worthy wonder. Stores that went full-out? Henri Bendel, Marc Jacobs, Agent Provocateur, Jimmy Choo, Ted Baker London, and Swarovski – to name a few.
Central’s snowman vacherin dessert
Nothing says “holiday” like a jolly snowman – but only at Central is he made of mouth-watering vanilla ice-cream in a sugary crust. Add a smart red scarf made of marzipan, homemade whipped cream, and raspberry sauce for the full effect. Dig in fast, as this little guy melts into his crystal sugar snow as fast as a real snowman in the sun.
Festive PJs by PJ Salvage
After a night out on the Strip, snuggle into bed this holiday season wearing these Christmas-y PJs by PJ Salvage. A long-sleeved top and pants, with a bright red tie at the waist, this nighttime ensemble features fun, festive design in the most luxurious of fabrics by the pajama company that counts Gwen Stefani as a fan. Pick up yours in the Qua spa retail store at Caesars Palace or at L’Apothecaire at Paris.
Peppermint Patty Martini at Sugar Factory
If you take your peppermint straight up instead of in a candy cane, Sugar Factory, at Paris, has a treat just for you. Its holiday special Peppermint Patty Martini is positively sinful (uh, naughty), made with chocolate vodka, rumple mints, Godiva chocolate liquer, chocolate sauce, rock candy syrup, and a tad of heavy whipping cream. Swirl with chocolate and dust with coco power, and you might never look at another ordinary candy cane again.
Caesars Palace’s lobby decor
The main lobby at Caesars Palace is spectacular year-round, but there’s something special about seeing it decked out in its holiday finest. Two enormous Christmas trees (sparkling with more than 5800 lights) greet visitors, and the center fountain is brightened with rows of 330 red and white poinsettias. The elegant Roman statues are draped in bronze and gold ornaments and 400 lights, their rotunda in festive red balls and garlands. In all, more than 1500 ornaments assure that Caesars Palace is in the holiday spirit.
Legends in Concert’s Christmas special
The tribute artists of Legends in Concert have gone all out for the holidays with special carols and even local choirs who have been invited to sing with them for the first time ever. Holiday hits in this special show, which runs through December 30th, include “Blue Christmas,” “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” and “Santa Baby.” The show at Flamingo, which famously features Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Elvis Presley tribute artists, finishes with a bang: an all-cast finale and tribute to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Christmas Eve in Sarajevo” (“Carol of the Bells”).
Holiday spa treatments at Qua
There’s no easier way to melt into the holidays than through the classic smells of Christmas. Qua spa, at Caesars Palace, uses pumpkin, cinnamon, buttered rum, and caramel in its seasonal spa menu, so indulge in a facial or body treatment to get in the mood.
Holiday party dress from L.K. Bennett
You’ll feel as dainty as a snowflake in the Ethel crystal embellished dress by L.K. Bennett, at Forum Shops. Its feminine cut features chiffon-edged neck and sleeves, and a silk bodice accented by shimmering crystal embellishments – perfect for stealing the spotlight at any holiday soiree.
The famous “Twelve Days of Christmas” holiday song has gotten Vegas-ized with Caesars Entertainment’s festive holiday promotion for current guests.

Smooth crooner and R&B megastar brings his “Sexy Love” to town when he hosts New Year’s Eve at Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace. The party will be especially celebratory for him, and not just because of his smash hits this year such as “Let’s Go” with Calvin Harris: Las Vegas is Ne-Yo’s hometown. Fun fact: A young Ne-Yo attended school at Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts.
The “Britney: Piece of Me” countdown is on
After her flashy welcome ceremony at Planet Hollywood, Spears was interviewed by E! News and discussed the next step for “Britney: Piece of Me” rehearsals. And attention gossip hounds: rumor has it Spears’ fellow pop sorority sisters Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus will be front row for her Dec. 27 debut.
Bally’s is about to get bazaar
The massive open walkway and façade in front of Bally’s Las Vegas hotel is about to get a swanky makeover. Located on the hugely trafficked intersection of Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard, it’s soon to be built out into an immersive outdoor shopping and dining destination named Grand Bazaar Shops, set to open next fall. Billed as a “21st Century Bazaar” it features more than 150 retailers, with design inspired by open-air markets around the world, plus several dining and bar hot spots. Swarovski, Swatch, Havaianas and Superdry have already signed on.
Fizz has uncorked at Caesars Palace
With its gilded walls, über-glam décor, chandeliers and all-around fabulousness, the newest watering hole at the grand Caesars Palace has struck gold. Fizz, a champagne bar in partnership with Colosseum God Elton John, his husband David Furnish and local Marvel Management and Marketing, has soft opened right next door to The Colosseum, making it an ideal spot for a pre- or post-show glass of bubbly. In additional to champagne cocktails, check out its menu of light bites and take in the scenery: all of the art featured is from John’s personal collection.

It’s officially Britney Spears month! The world’s biggest pop star (and “Vegas Player” cover girl) finally arrived in Las Vegas yesterday—on the day her eighth studio album released, no less—to begin rehearsals for her landmark two-year residency, “Britney: Piece of Me” at Planet Hollywood Resort. The splashy appearance coincided with the announcement of new show dates and VIP packages due to overwhelming demand to see the legendary diva in action when she returns to the stage Dec. 27.
Tickets for the first run are already on sale with many sold-out dates, but given their record-setting numbers, tickets for her newly added shows are launching earlier than planned.
April: Friday, April 25; Saturday, April 26; Wednesday, April 30
May: Friday, May 2; Saturday, May 3; Wednesday, May 7; Friday, May 9; Saturday, May 10; Wednesday, May 14; Friday, May 16; Saturday, May 17
August: Saturday, Aug. 16; Tuesday, Aug. 19; Saturday, Aug. 23; Wednesday, Aug. 27; Saturday, Aug. 30; Sunday, Aug. 31
September: Wednesday, Sept. 3; Friday, Sept. 5; Saturday, Sept. 6
Spears fans have a few chances for exclusive ticket offers before they go on sale to the general public this Saturday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. American Express cardholder presale began today at 10 a.m. through Dec. 6 at 10 p.m. and Total Rewards members have Dec. 5 at 10 a.m. through Dec. 6 at 10 p.m. to purchase tickets. But the show’s real hot tickets are the limited number VIP meet-and-greet packages that include everything from backstage access and photo with Spears to front row seating and bottle service, autographed posters, personal escorts, and special dedicated lines.
In an elaborate, traffic-stopping appearance in front of Planet Hollywood Tuesday afternoon, Spears was officially welcomed by a mass of cheering fans, friends and executives. Aerialists and costumed dancers performed to some of her most famous hits, and the crowd reach a fever pitch as Spears’ eight-car motorcade drew closer to the red carpet. After she was presented with a bouquet of pink roses, Queen B addressed her loyal followers: “What’s up Vegas? This is my city now.”
Spears was of course not only celebrating her long-awaited Vegas arrival, but the release of what she calls her most personal album yet, “Britney Jean,” which includes fresh new (and undeniably catchy) electro-pop material and her new singles, “Work Bitch” and “Perfume.” A few of the songs will be woven into “Britney: Piece of Me,” but the “party vibe” show will largely focus on her greatest hits (think “Baby One More Time” and “Toxic”), performed in a grand theater-meets-nightclub environment—the only one of its kind in Las Vegas.
Spears recently appeared on “Ellen” to showcase the first rendering of her stage set while talking about “Britney: Piece of Me.”

Just call Shania Twain the rhinestone cowgirl. To get the full rundown on every detail of Twain’s seven sparkling costumes in her “Shania: Still the One” show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, I went straight to the sources, first using insight I gained from my prior interview with Twain.
“My favorite one is probably the opening number,” Twain says. “Overall I think that’s my favorite because I love the glitz of it, and that I can still wear it at this point in my life. I’m getting closer to 50 all the time so it feels really great to be able to wear that still. It always sets the show off, I feel good in it… I’m not so sure I’m even looking to change [any costumes], because I like them and I’m happy with the fashion direction we’re in.”
I followed up with a backstage tour in the top-security wardrobe area to see each creation and speak to personal dresser Glynda Conway, who gave me the scoop on each look:
The opening look is spectacular, and every costume has so much detail.
On it is a complete assortment of crystals. This takes a lot of maintenance so every day we go over it with a fine tooth comb. All her boots were custom made by LaDuca, so they are reinforced, sturdy, dance shoes, perfect fit and perfect height for her. The leopard shoes are actually lined and made out of the same silk fabric as the rest. Her black gloves started off as original gloves and we added beads and stones. Our job is never ending, each stone that comes off, we put two on.
What is her fastest change?
Going into her leopard outfit, only because there is so much to put on. It’s right at a two minute costume change, but she is coming out of all her western stuff with the boots and jeans, and I have to get her dressed, get her cape, plus get it pinned, get it wrapped, and then she’s got the gloves and boots, and the luggage. It took a while to get a rhythm down, it’s basically choreographed, plus she has hair and makeup touch ups in there with us.
Have there been any funny wardrobe moments since the show started?
The funny one she talks about is she was already loaded up on the motorcycle going up into the sky right before the show starts, because that’s her grand entrance, and she had her retainer still in her mouth. She was reaching down as the motorcycle was going up and she didn’t want to throw it or drop it, and I was in the wings jumping to try to get the retainer.
Any other secrets you can share?
The trick with the hat—you have to catch it. In “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” she starts off the number with a top hat and then she throws it. Whoever catches it hopefully reads it and security brings them down and does a meet and greet and she signs autographs and they take a picture.
I then jumped on the phone with Twain’s right hand wardrobe man, Marc Bouwer, who designed and crafted all of them. He gave me an inside peek at his 15-year working relationship with Twain and his design process.
When did you first meet Shania?
I worked with her on the “VH1 Divas Live” thing and then when it came down to that particular video, “From This Moment,” I was asked to dress her and that’s when our friendship really started.
Why do you think you guys formed such a bond right away?
I think she could see I was really personally involved in how she looked and I really cared about the overall look of the video, and her image. I sat there the entire time in front of the camera and the director and fixed her. She liked the insight into what was a very, very important time in her career. I think Shania is the kind of person, that once she kind of finds something that works well for her she likes to stick with it. She’s very loyal that way.
So obviously when it came time to do the Vegas show, she called you…
I did seven videos with her and they are the most memorable ones, I think. When we spoke about the Vegas show she wanted to bring those looks to life on a much bigger, grander scale as well as create a show around her hits. She asked me “how can we not lose the identity of the costumes we created that are so iconic in relation to the videos, but make them more grand and extravagant?” I was her go-to person. I worked with her on so many different projects. Not only did I do videos, I did personal appearances, tours, red carpets and I’d flown with her all over the world. We really have a trusting, good relationship.
Can you take me through your design process when you started to work on these costumes?
For the opening scene, I’d done that video “I’m Gonna Getcha.” I came up with a very embellished gunmetal catsuit that’s tiger striped and also has a lacy look to it. The next one was the cowboy scene, and it was brand new, not from a video, and was a challenge because she wanted to do a medley of her country hits, so I created this patchwork coat all done by hand. It’s probably the most intricate thing I did for the show. When she rides on stage in that outfit with the cowboy hat on she gets almost a standing ovation just from that. Then she dances in it and she takes it off and there’s Marilyn Monroe high-waisted denim pants with pink cowboy boots and a beaded plaid wrap shirt.
Then the next one is the iconic leopard look, and that one she shot in the desert and the original outfit was done in the velvet. I said to keep the hood and the leopard but make it out of ultra-lightweight silk, with a really multicolored, beautiful swing top and wide leg pajama pants.
The campfire scene was hard because she wanted to look very casual, because this is when she’s interacting with her fans, sitting around talking about her life. Then she came up with an off the shoulder drapey top with all the embellished stones and then some cutoff pair of jeans and Moccasin boots.
The ballad scene was the most difficult scene to do in the show. I’m known for doing these beautiful gowns and we wanted to do something totally fantastic for this scene for “Still the One” and “From This Moment.” What we had to do is take a really simple dress, then we created all these add-ons, a jacket and cuffs, which takes that dress to a whole other level. For “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” we recreated it, but the dress is all hand-beaded. For the finale bow I made her a biker jacket that had the big gold S on the back.
What would you like to see her in next?
She has been through so many incarnations with looks, she is capable of doing anything. My favorite look on her is ultra-sexy, beautiful gowns, so I’d like to see more of that, but I like her in the tough looks as well. When we work on a new project together she sends me the lyrics to the songs first, or a rough cut and lets me write a treatment. We have a really great collaboration and a good synergy between the two of us.

Talk about a “lightning Rod!” “Forever Young” rocker and music legend Rod Stewart announced nine additional shows of his powerhouse “Rod Stewart: The Hits” residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The cheeky Brit added in new songs from his first all-new album in almost 20 years, Time, that features his return to songwriting and 11 original songs. He debuted the revamped show on Nov. 6, with a more state-of-the-art stage and a new duet—his daughter Ruby now joins him on stage for “Forever Young.” New material joins classic favorites such as “Maggie May,” “Tonight’s the Night” and “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?”
Said Stewart about the extension: “I could play here forever. It’s intimate so the fans all get great seats and loads even join me on stage, which is a total blast – plus they treat me like I’m Elvis.”

Vegas’ rank in the fashion world rose a little higher yesterday when H&M’s latest high-stakes fashion collabo launched, as the Isabel Marant pieces went on sale after months of salacious buzz that heightened when the full lookbook was leaked months ago. The chic French designer created quite an expansive collection, and chose this landmark partnership to do her first ever line of menswear and children’s clothing.
As the holy grail of Strip shopping, The Forum Shops at Caesars is one of the limited number of H&M’s carrying the collection, and the only one in Las Vegas out of its four outposts. Shoppers were allowed to line up beginning at 6 a.m. for the store’s specialty 8 a.m. opening time (10 a.m. on a normal day), and early birds were given special treatment. The first 420 in line were given bracelets—14 colors for each group of 30 customers (yes, we’re serious, this is fashion) and allowed 15 minutes to shop per group so it didn’t get too crazy.
But I can see why it did get a little nuts—and why women were schlepping multiple bags full of the goods, getting their hands on the very limited number of pieces made. As Rachel Zoe would say, “I die.” Structured quilted boho jackets embellished with studs, wool cardigans, metallic tanks, silk floral print dresses, chunky silver jewelry; I wanted it all.
In the short whirlwind of time I was there, I only witnessed a few instances of female shopaholic insanity. There were definitely a few staredowns over dresses and tops whose popular sizes were quickly disappearing, and I tried to keep up with my fellow
lionesses in the wild in-store competitors, tearing through the racks like it was “The Hunger Games” of fashion.
The boxes of shoes—namely the suede beaded pumps and fringed booties—fared the worst, and were ravaged by the time I arrived at 9 a.m., with my size completely sold out. Quickly checking the H&M web site on my cell phone to try and score a pair, I discovered it had crashed, natch.
I ended up scoring a top I really wanted, and promptly left before I got knocked over by any more crazed fashionistas. All I know is, if Christian Louboutin ever releases an H&M collection, I’ll prepare for battle, throw some elbows, and be one of those fashion nuts I was mocking yesterday.
