The first celebs to arrive on the “Hawaii Five-0″ season six premiere red carpet Saturday night at Sunset on the Beach were … pirates! Huh? Did they lose their way to the Black Pearl?
Reporters tried to get some answers from them but I suppose the 19th century seafarers didn’t understand the 21st century hoopla. All came clear when the episode screened after 7 p.m.
The pirates opened the episode built around a 200-year treasure hunt. Interesting. It had me wondering if pirates did indeed ever make their way to our islands. The episode will air Sept. 25.
If you joined me live on Periscope, you were probably feeling some of the restlessness waiting for the show’s stars to arrive, and at the end of my livestreams people were asking, “Where’s Danno?” Well, Danno, aka Scott Caan, did not appear this year, but here’s a look at the stars who did show up:
“Five-0’s” Steve McGarrett, Alex O’Loughlin was the picture of sophistication in a Gucci suit paired with a Tom Ford shirt.
Grace Park continued her association with Versace, showing up in this cute chartreuse mini dress.
Teilor Grubbs, who plays Danno’s daughter on the series is growing up fast. She wore a pale pink and gray ombre dress from Young Fabulous & Broke.
Ian Anthony Dale has a dramatic turn in Season 6’s opening episode and showed up in a tailor-made suit by Spanish designer Purificacion Garcia.
Chi McBride, Capt. Lou Grover on the series, also showed up in a bespoke suit, but is keeping the name of his tailor to himself.
In keeping with the international-meets-local vibe of the series, executive producer Peter Lenkov paired his Armani suit with a shirt from Tori Richard.
Taylor Wily and his family always turn out in coordinated outfits. Taylor and his son YoungAisa wear “The Governor” ensembles, Samoan evening wear by Rosana. Wife Halona and daughter Tula accessorized their Sears outfits with jewelry handmade in Tahiti.
Shawn Garnett, who is Cousin Flippa in the series, accessorized his aloha shirt with a giant puka shell necklace given to him by his grandfather.
Slated to make his second guest appearance in Season 6, chef Masaharu Morimoto walked the red carpet in a head-to-toe ensemble from Uniqlo.
Performing after the show, Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik said his wife dresses him, so he didn’t know whose shirt he was wearing. A label check revealed his shirt was by John Varvatos.
