A Night With the Stars-QVC Pre-Oscars Red Carpet Style Party

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

I'm definitely living life in a tailspin these days. I left New York and Vegas to come home to a city that was set ablaze with award season frenzy. Parties and festivities took place all over town last week in celebration of the Oscars, triggering a palpable sense of excitement, madness and sheer exhaustion in me. So, even though I'm in the middle of posting NYFW coverage, I just can't neglect left coast action which means I'm temporarily shifting gears, interjecting the Big Apple with a slice of Hollywood.

Last Thursday, I went to the QVC Pre-Oscars party held at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.  It was such a fun night as I got to catch up with friends and make tons of new ones.

The party was tented inside the Four Season's stunning gardens. Highlighted by lush surroundings, displays of gorgeous white roses, passed hors d'oeuvre trays of caviar and tuna tartare, and an endless/bottomless open bar, it was a night of fabulousness filled with a tent full of celebrity party-goers. L.A. designer Rachel Pally was on hand to share her love of fashion and present her debut line. Acclaimed jewelry designers Judith Ripka and Erica Courtney also joined the all-star lineup to put the finishing touches on the ravishing red carpet looks.

To add a distinct touch of Hollywood glam to the evening, QVC enlisted some of its most premiere beauty and style experts, including Kate Somerville, Nick Chavez, Ken Paves, Chaz Dean, the bareMinerals team and QVC newcomer Kimora Lee Simmons, who debuted her innovative new anti-aging cream.

I had a fabulous time chatting with some of the celebrities attendees. It was the epitome of a crazy LA night, as I somehow ended it watching Jon Hamm play dominoes at the Hollywood Sunset Tower Hotel. I love this city!

Josie Maran! By far, she's my favorite Maybelline girl. 

Gilles Marini from Sex and the City. I keep running into him at events. Lucky me!

Totally did not know Allison Janney is so vertically proficient.

I heart Wendi Mclendon-Covey! She was my favorite character from Bridesmaids. We chatted about her Oscars dress, which apparently is too heavy for her to carry! She looked amazing on Oscar night in her beaded princess dress!
