Starlets Galore at a Hollywood Fête for Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli
Kate Bosworth, Vogue's Lisa Love, and Chloë Sevigny hosted an evening of drinks and dancing at West Hollywood's Soho House last night. Nicole Richie, Anna Paquin, Milla Jovovich, and Alexis Bledel crowded into the new members' club high above Sunset Boulevard to toast Valentino's Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli. The invite's 10 p.m. start time was uncharacteristically late for early-to-bed Angelenos, and more than 200 guests enjoyed tunes from Paul Sevigny and a live performance from the band Chief well into the night. "It doesn't feel like L.A.," Shiva Rose remarked. Well, except for the sprawling views and the only-in-SoCal retracting roof.
"We love this city; it's super and the weather is fantastic," said Chiuri, who hit the local museums and some vintage shops while in town. Most of the designers' celebrity pals opted for cocktail dresses, but Bosworth, who arrived with boyfriend Alexander Skarsgård, wore a pair of daring red leather pants with a house signature bow at the waist and a lace top. "I sort of just had to commit to it," she said.
