Amber Lounge, the exclusive Formula One party event, brought the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix weekend to a close with a star-studded event attended by renowned figures from the worlds of motor racing, music, sport, film, entertainment and fashion.

Called The Original F1 Experience , the party saw performances by American singer Chris Willis, AKA ‘The Voice of David Guetta, and American rapper, DJ Big Ali.

Shaking off the tension of a highly competitive weekend on track, F1 drivers were out in force, including Jenson Button, Valtteri Bottas, Stoffel Vandoorne, Carlos Sainz, Nico Hülkenberg, Jolyon Palmer, Marcus Ericsson, Daniil Kvyat and Esteban Ocon.

Grand entrances were also made by American actress Pamela Anderson, Irish actor Liam Cunningham, former F1 driver Eddie Irvine, footballers Jerome Boateng and Marco Verratti, and Tour de France green jersey winner Mark Cavendish.

On Friday, in the esteemed company of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the megawatt Amber Lounge Fashion Show got the weekend party started. This year’s charity partner was Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race Against Dementia, a cause close to his heart and that of Amber Lounge founder Sonia Irvine.

The ladies of F1 also got a star turn, as they lit up the catwalk in a beautiful silk collection by Silviya Neri. Then followed the Auction, during which bidders raised in excess of €500,000 for Sir Jackie’s Charity.

On race day, Pamela Anderson and actress Lindsay Lohan joined the Amber Lounge luxury yacht alongside F1-loving guests, to view the 78-lap Monaco Grand Prix, in which championship leader Sebastian Vettel stormed to victory.

Amber Lounge Monaco may have come to a close, but Amber Lounge 2017 has only just got started. Next stop will be Singapore, then Mexico City and the F1 season finale in Abu Dhabi.

Founded in 2003 by Sonia Irvine, sister of retired British racing driver Eddie, Amber Lounge has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned high-end hospitality companies.

The next stop for Amber Lounge will be Singapore, then Mexico City before the F1 season finale in Abu Dhabi.
