Seen Around Town: WWE Star Emma Pins Vegas, The Chainsmokers Get a Cut

Celebrities frequent our city around the clock. Here are the most notable sightings of the week.

Our annual “Best of the City” issue hit newsstands just as celebs checked into their rooms last weekend, and, like you, they were curious to see our picks in person.


*NSYNC and Dancing With the Stars alum Lance Bass dropped in to witness Baz: Star Crossed Love at The Palazzo on Friday night. The show, which earned our award for “Best Production Cast,” just celebrated its first anniversary, and Lance proudly declared it “my favorite show in Vegas” on Instagram.

After the show, the On the Line star swung by Venetian hotspot Chica (our pick for “Best Girl-Power Brunch Spot”) while the Baz cast, including star Ruby Lewis, was next door celebrating at The Dorsey (“Best Place for a Fireside Chat”).

Also on the town Friday night, WWE star Emma, who took in previous “Best of the City” darling, Absinthe, at Caesars Palace. She even managed to get a picture with the Gazillionaire, so good for her.


If you were at The Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool on Saturday and your man was staring curiously at a woman that he thought he knew from somewhere, it was probably adult film star Kendra Lust.

Lust, AVN’s back-to-back winner for “MILF Performer of the Year” and “Hottest MILF (Fan Award)” in 2016 and 2017, hit up Vegas this weekend with friends and spent early Saturday lounging poolside before heading out to Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell.

Drai’s, our pick for “Best Artist Table,” gave Lust the star treatment, introducing her with a welcome message and showcasing some of her best pics on the video screen. Then it got ridiculous when T.I. took the stage and gave us heartbreaking FOMO because we spent Saturday night trying to finish Season Five of The Mindy Project. We’re almost all caught up.

Meanwhile, Emma kept it going, spending her Saturday night in the crowd for Pitbull at Planet Hollywood’s Axis showroom, before heading out to see The Chainsmokers at Encore’s XS Nightclub.

By the way, if you’re wondering where Chainsmoker duo Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall get their look, it comes from Claude BARUK Salon at Wynn Las Vegas. The pair stopped just before their XS performance and posed for pics with Claude Baruk on their way out.
