Wearing a red Valentino dress and pink and purple fur coat, Rita emerged from her limo to a cast of Streetmosphere performers, singing gondoliers and cheering onlookers.

Rita jumped on the bell cart with her bags in tow and was wheeled onto the red carpet and into the lobby for more fun.

“I’m so happy to be here at The Venetian. I have beautiful smelling roses, I have pink cookies, I have champagne, and it’s not even 10 a.m. yet,” Rita said. “What a great start to my day and a fabulous welcome to The Venetian!”

A butler waited with a glass of champagne while James Beard Award Winning Chef Luciano Pelligrini from Valentino and Executive Chefs Mark Hopper from Bouchon and Daniel Marquez and Juan Pentes from Taqueria Cañonita had delicious bites for her to taste, including pink cookies to which Rita exclaimed, “Pink is my favorite color!”

Rita hammed it up for the cameras, tucking a napkin into her couture dress so she could enjoy the food and even waded into the fountain in the lobby.
