Ever been Hukk’d? Wednesday night we found ourselves high up in the Hollywood Hills at the Winklevoss bachelor pad for our first experience; Tyler and Cameron showed us the way. The duo hosted a swanky holiday bash at their home to celebrate the launch of Hukkster, a new shopping app founded by Katie Finnegan and Erica Bell; the Winklevvoss twins are investors. The venture marks their first foray into the fashion realm of the tech world and thanks to the impeccably tailored gray suits they wore for the occasion – the twins showed they’ve definitely got a sense of style.
And they weren’t the only dapper gents in attendance. A slew of Hollywood hotties made an appearance, but it was the house and the view that had guests enamored. Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams, Desperate Housewives’ Jesse Metcalfe and Sex and the City’s Jason Lewis had nothing on the fire pits, infinity pool, and luxe touches that filled the space. The festive holiday decor that included a shopping themed tree and two menorahs put guests in a spirited mood–that and the flowing Chandon cocktails.
Get Hukk’d sunglasses scattered throughout the space reminded us why we were there so we made sure to get a proper Hukkster.com preview. And as seasoned online shoppers, we can tell this app will revolutionize our digital retail experience. The site allows users to save their favorite items and the products they are stalking in one location; it also updates the consumer on when something they covet has gone on sale, which totally eliminates the need to stalk the prices.
We wanted to hukk the house, but since that’s not possible yet we’ll be hukking the various booties we’ve got our eyes on. We’re also working on getting into the Winklevoss’ social network–those two know how to throw a party.
