It was a star-filled night when Scott Campbell and Clement Kwan launched their upscale cannabis company Beboe at a posh mansion overlooking Los Angeles. Actress and artist Lisa Eisner was the evening’s hostess to celebrate the luxury weed brand with the likes of Orlando Bloom, Justin Theroux, Daniela Villegas, Sami Hayek, David Schill, Kate Butler, Sharon Stone, Alejandra Campoverdi, and more. Normally such luminaries gather to launch a champagne, a cognac, a new Hermes bag or a Democratic candidate, but this time they gathered for a marijuana company that caters to a “new, more sophisticated customer.”
Scott and Clement welcomed guests to an exclusive night where A-listers discussed politics, entertainment and, of course, the evolving world of cannabis. Scott’s stunning wife Lake Bell was spotted chatting with fellow actress Malin Akerman. Before dinner, Art Basel Miami maven Lauren Taschen, someone who knows a thing or two about marketing success, seemed to be engaged in a deep conversation with Lisa Eisner and power couple Philippe Vergne & Sylva Chivaratanond. Others spotted at the party included Kayne collaborator Wes Lang and the always interesting Angela Janklow.
Celebrity chef Nina Clemente curated a feast attendees savored while dining alfresco. China Chow, Liza Lou, Kenny Scharf, Benji Madden, and others swayed along to the music of DJ Mike Nouveau over the course of the evening. Former California Assemblyman and current principal of California Strategies Rusty Areias offered insights into the direction of the cannabis industry before dessert.
Campbell rose to fame as a tattoo artist and has handled more ink than the combined editors of Town and Country. Leaving a career as a biochemist, he quickly became THE artist to create body art on such screen idols as Heath Ledger and Penelope Cruz. Unable to restrain his art to skin, he has expanded into painting, sculpture and now cannabis. Of course, the perfect partner to make success for Campbell is Kwan, a known name in the luxury retail space as President of YOOX Corporation and as a former projects manager at Dolce & Gabbana. Together they should make a force in the industry and add a bit of hip to the hashish.
