Day One as Vanity Fair’s digital corespondent for @VFAgenda. I drove a wicked Fiat 500. Hit up Chateau Marmont. Experienced a Red Carpet overdose. And partied the night away with Olivia Munn, Aaron Sorkin and the lovlies from Juicy Couture.
BEST PHOTO EVAH…
I’ve often compared Hollywood to Fashionville, in an attempt to make sense of all the characters and hierarchy’s which define each industry, but now, I’ve crossed over, finding myself in a land of palm tree’s, step and repeats and paparazzi, as the lucky winner of a Vanity Fair contest which has had my head spinning since sitting for a full rundown with the team at VFAgenda last Friday.
A flight to the city of angels, a private car ride to the Maison 140, and a quick outfit change later, and I’m finding myself at the Chateau Marmont for a Juicy Couture hosted fete with a guestlist that includes some of my fave TV stars including Olivia Munn (The Newsroom), Kate Mara (American Horror Story), Ali Larter (Heroes) and BryanBoy (America’s Next Top Model). Okay, the last is more of a fellow fashionite, but I can’t deny loving all the fabulous produced by this front row fixture. We arrived early to the Chateau to get intros to the team at Juicy Couture and provide us ample time to prep for the red carpet onslaught which included a who’s who of beauties who graced the pages of the Vanities Calendar, a collaborative effort launched in this month’s edition of Vanity Fair. Fellow bloggers Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast and Shea Marie of Peace, Love, Shea also made it, fortunately leaving me with a few people I recognized outside of the celebs.
For the evening, I wore a Balenciaga dress, under the most amazing Clover Canyon jacket, paired with a classic Chanel and a pair of United Nude‘s, which by the end of the evening had received at least 15 votes of approval from various Hollywood-types at the party. Of course, after 2-hours on slanted cobblestone, my feet attempted suicide and I was forced to revive them with a massage from Saynt, which raised a few eyebrows, but mostly from people who seemed pissed they didn’t have their own personal masseuse on hand. I spent most of the evening knocking elbows with Kate Mara, Brooklyn Decker, Ali Larter, Eva Longoria, and almost passed out when director Aaron Sorkin arrived.
In New York, we get tons of famous folks at fashion week and at various parties, but it’s very rare to see a director, so I was actually more starstruck by seeing this creative-type just chilling and snapping silly shots with cast members of The Newsroom. Truly surreal.
