Over 500 beautiful people, including athletes, celebrities, and a bunch of twenty-somethings, rocked the red carpet at the Mellwood Arts Center Friday night at the first Maxim Fillies and Stallions party.
The guest list included the "Most Interesting Man in the World" Jonathan Goldsmith of Dos Equis fame, Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers, ESPN's Erin Andrews, celebrity chef Bobby Flay, Wildcat basketball alumni DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall, party animal (and Olympic skier) Bode Miller, Nick Lachey and country superstar Travis Tritt, among others.
Female "jockeys" in argyle sweaters and short skirts danced on cubes, swinging their riding crops to the rhythm.
Revelers enjoyed cocktails with a Derby flair by Evan Williams, Lunazul Tequila and Red Bull.
Maxim officials indicated they expect the party to return in the future.
