Bustiers Not Required
The Golden Globes party scene heated up last night, with a raucous dinner at the West Hollywood Mexican joint Gardens of Taxco, hosted by T magazine. Tucked away in one corner, Parks and Recreation co-stars Rashida Jones and Aziz Ansari sat with Alexa Chung and Juliette Lewis, while Somewhere's Stephen Dorff caught up with tablemate Stephen Moyer of True Blood. The California trip was a quick visit for T's newly appointed editor in chief Sally Singer. "Since I'm going to the men's shows, I'll actually be watching the Golden Globes from Milan in the middle of the night from my hotel room." As for her take on Sunday's red carpet? "I'm really hoping that we get back to more minimal designs this year. Much less of the ornamentation and bustiers and trains than we've been seeing. It's the one awards show where actresses can go short and take risks."
Fast-rising star Lily Collins, fresh from filming overseas, was thrilled to be back in L.A. for all the festivities. "I'm excited to see Emma Stone, what she's wearing, and just to see that she's nominated for Easy A. And Natalie Portman of course, I always love her." The Black Swan actress had two other important fans in attendance: Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte. "With this film and with Darren Aronofsky, and the casting, and the role of fashion, it just was the perfect fit for us," said Laura. "Of course I want Natalie to win."
