Nothing brings people together like fine champagne — especially if the people in question are international celebrities.

To get the news out on the launch of the 2019 Limited-Edition Moët & Chandon Nectar Imperial Rosé Bottle, the bubbly winery partnered with iconic pop culture photographer Jonathan Mannion. Over the years, Mannion rose a glass and photographed Notorious B.I.G., P-Diddy and Aaliyah during the so-called “Golden Era” of Hip Hop. Since those heady, head shop days, he shot more than 300 album covers and publicity stills for the likes of Jay-Z, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Mannion will provide photographic work for Moët & Chandon Imperial Rosé to launch its new and annual program, “Nectar of the Culture”.

Moët and Mannion identified six pioneers in key cities who are changing the game and pushing culture into a new era. This year, that list includes celebrity fashion designer LaQuan Smith -- the self-taught celebrity fashion designer from Queens who now designs for Beyonce, Rihanna, the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan and Cardi B.
