White Party 2012 Photos & Recap

By: Rick Andreoli

It was super hot in Palm Springs this weekend. Yes, part of that had to do with the gorgeous desert sun offering up a clear 80+ degrees, but it also had to do with all the amazingly sexy men converging for White Party 2012. This year saw record-breaking attendance over Easter weekend, with more than 30,000 revelers attending 8 parties in approximately 72 hours.

Guys and gals in attendance enjoyed the incredible music, entertainment, and more. Australian spin-masters Nervo and Mary J. Blige set Saturday night on fire at the Convention Center. Sunday's hugely popular Tea Dance featured a choreographed fireworks tribute to Whitney Houston and a show-stopping performance from X Factor winner Melanie Amaro.

In other news, the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism recognized White Party among the City’s highest tourism revenue-generating events annually (first slide, below). Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump was crowned Queen of the White Party along with her dog Giggy, while disco legend France Joli, pop chart-toppers JoJo and Jessie and the Toy Boys, rising stars Liz Primo, Collette Carr, Kwanza Jones and many more were in the house. Check out these great photos from the entire weekend, including some behind-the-scenes action.
