The opening night of Marquee, the brand new nightclub at The Star in Pyrmont, Sydney, brought out some of the biggest names in Hollywood and Australia. Local stars kicked things off on the purple carpet at 8:30 p.m., where they posed for photos and spoke with media. The super-bright lights had a sweltering effect on many of the celebrities, who tried to keep cool and headed straight into the club after their press duties. We spoke to heaps of the stars on their way in, including Jodi Gordon, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Erin McNaught, Laura Csortan, Rebecca Breeds and Luke Mitchell, Erika Heynatz and more — most of them were looking forward to music from Afrojack and LMFAO’s Red Foo, and a few said they were excited to see, who will hit the decks for tonight’s public opening.

At around 10 p.m. the international stars arrived — Isabel Lucas told us, “I was excited to come because I was allowed to bring my dad. We’ve had a really lovely time. I haven’t come to Sydney for quite a while. It will be good to spend time with friends.” Inside the party we saw her hanging with former Home and Away co-star Rhys Wakefield. She also revealed that she’ll be participating in Earth Hour tonight at 8:30. Nick Lachey stayed close to his pregnant wife Vanessa, who was glowing in a loose-fitting black and white dress. A super-sparkly Paris Hilton, dressed in Rachel Gilbert, worked her signature poses against the media wall and was rushed inside ahead of boyfriend Afrojack’s set. Wilmer Valderrama and Joe Jonas hit the purple carpet at the same time and did some of their interviews together, while we spotted Ashlee Simpson and Minka Kelly — who both indulged in some retail therapy on Oxford St earlier in the day — sitting together inside the venue.

Kellan Lutz told us he goes to Marquee in Vegas “all the time” when he’s there, and that he was keen to hit the dance floor with girlfriend Sharni Vinson, saying, “I’m lucky enough to be dating one of the best dancers in the world.” Aje-clad Sharni hadn’t been to a Marquee club before and joked that her dress presented “certain barriers” when it came to dancing. She added, “The vibe is already huge, so I’m feeling it’s going to be a great night.”
