If, cruising through the Hollywood Hills yesterday, you thought you zoomed by Minnie Driver chasing after a toddler riding a glittering pony, well, you did. Driver, the kid, and the pony (Buttons) were all guests at Liberty Ross’ afternoon tea party in honor of Daniella Issa Helayel, who’s launching the tot’s version of her namesake clothing line, Baby Issa. (That’s Ross with Baby Issa-clad babies, above.) The well-dressed under-five set will soon be wearing 100 percent cotton and cotton voile dresses, swimsuits, and trenchcoats. Hollywood types like Monet Mazur, Ione Skye and rocker hubby Ben Lee, and Vanity Fair‘s Krista Smith brought their fashion-forward kiddies to peruse the goods while DJ Brett Anderson worked the turntables—the party being, she discovered, more of a challenge than she’d anticipated. “Finding cool, kid-appropriate music is tough,” Anderson mused. “Like, did you know that “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” is about murder?”

The scene in Ross’ sunlit backyard resembled something out of a G-rated La Dolce Vita. In addition to Buttons, there was the requisite Crumbs cupcakes spread, a manicure station (where Decades’ Cameron Silver was spotted), a temporary tattoo booth, a pillow-strewn fort, and scores of Baby Issa-wearing children prancing about. “This is nothing like my childhood parties,” said Driver as she watched a three-year-old get a tattoo of an anchor. “The most we ever got was an above-ground pool and some charred hot dogs.”
