Celeste And Jesse Forever—And Scott, Too

-------

For a decidedly low-key spin on the big-ticket movie spectacle, Band of Outsiders queued up the concessions stand and a taco truck Saturday night to accompany their screening of Sundance favorite, Celeste and Jesse Forever. For Rashida Jones, who both stars alongside Andy Samberg and makes her screenwriting debut, the pairing with Band was a foregone conclusion. “Scott [Sternberg] has such great taste in film and fashion, and it was something we had talked about before the movie was even sold,” she said. A longtime fan of the line, Jones even enlisted Sternberg’s help to outfit her and co-star Elijah Woods in the film. And as a first-time screenwriter, getting the Band imprimatur was a confidence-boost too. “It’s the ultimate vote of confidence,” she said.

For Will McCormack, who co-wrote the script with Jones, the screening meant bringing the film back to its roots—and the city that features prominently in the film. “There’s no place like home,” he enthused to the crowd of family, friends and local L.A. faces including Jones’ Parks and Recreation co-star Adam Scott, Marisa Tomei, Rosemarie DeWitt (both pictured above, with Jones), stylist Jessica de Ruiter, and Vena Cava’s Sophie Buhai. “We hope you like it,” said McCormack, to which Jones said with a smile, “and if you don’t, just be like, you made a movie. That’s awesome!”

Irene Neuwirth Debuts Diamonds With Michelle Williams, Busy Philipps, And A Few Famous Friend-Loves

-------

Irene Neuwirth is known for her colorful, slightly bohemian jewels, but every girl—even those who live, like she does, on the beach in Venice—need to go full-throttle upscale now and again. So when Barneys, one of her earliest supporters, came knocking with a request for a diamond collection, Neuwirth obliged. The Barneys pieces represent her first foray into fine jewelry, a move the designer describes as a natural next step. “I’ve been designing jewelry for ten years,” she explained last night at a private bash at the retailer’s Madison Avenue flagship. “All of my clients who had been collecting pieces over and over, I felt they needed something different and a little bit finer. I feel like there was a hole in the market for something youthful.” The collection mixes diamonds with Neuwirth’s old favorite stones, like chrysophase, Rose of France, and Peruvian opal. Prices start at $15,000 and go up to $200,000—the Weinstein range, you might say. And there was Harvey, schmoozing in the corner.

The California connection may have helped account for his presence and all of the star power collected at Barneys’ eighth-floor penthouse. Michelle Williams (in orange and black striped Prada) and Lake Bell also stopped by, and the evening was hosted by Cougar Town‘s Busy Philipps and musician Joanna Newsom, who had her boyfriend, Andy Samberg, in tow. Philipps (above, with Neuwirth and Williams) has been a big Neuwirth supporter: The actress wore Neuwirth’s pieces to this year’s Oscars and Golden Globes. “I’ve known Irene a relatively short time,” Philipps admitted, but “it’s been a love affair that’s blossomed to its full potential very quickly. We fell into instant friend-love.” Williams, her longtime friend—devotees may remember they both starred on Dawson’s Creek—was sitting beside her. “I wasn’t jealous,” she deadpanned.
