los angeles fashion week: brunch at the chateau
The Los Angeles fashion week calendar isn’t exactly jam-packed with shows this season. So where is the West Coast fashion pack this week? The Chateau Marmont, for one. That’s where the likes of Rosetta Getty, a five-months-pregnant Brigette Romanek, and Paz de la Huerta were spotted yesterday morning attending a fundraiser brunch co-hosted by Rose Apodaca, Carla Gugino, Erica Davies, and Anastasia Soare. Funds were being raised to stop Proposition 8, an intiative that aims to keep same-sex marriage illegal. “Does anyone know Tom Ford or Donatella Versace?” asked Geoff Kors, Equality California’s executive director. “Because right now every little bit helps, but what we need are $100,000 checks like the ones written by Brad Pitt or Steven Spielberg to help secure change in our history.” Constitutional rights and fashion (what else?) dominated conversations for most. But de la Huerta did give us a few details about her next movie project: It’s a drama, and it starts pre-production in Amsterdam later this week.
