Las Vegas continues to be a platinum-party playground for Hollywood, music and sports stars.

Debuting its chic new look, the freshly remodeled Ghostbar at the Palms has already attracted stars eager to see the upgraded hangout. Spotted separately at the 55th-floor boutique nightspot: former Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin and Blink-182 drummer and fashion designer Travis Barker.

Ghostbar now features glistening chandeliers, plush banquettes and an exquisite color scheme of white, black and fuchsia.

Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari and her dog Bardot, at MAGIC Fashion Week at Mandalay Bay, peddled her new collection of Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry at the Convention Center.

Hip-hop superstar Pharrell Williams (“Blurred Lines,” “Get Lucky”) celebrated a decade of his I Am Other clothing-line success with a performance at Pure in Caesars Palace.

Fashion favorite and reality TV star Whitney Port and her sister Paige partied at Tao in the Venetian. Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London performed at Tao for the Liberty Fairs fashion tradeshow.

About-to-be-married Holly Madison watched “X Burlesque” for burlesque research, as did dancers from the new “X Rocks” at the Rio.
