what’s bigger than the oscars? the only thing i can think of is the annual vanity fair party that takes place each year at the same time. it’s a big invite… the dinner is full of old school actors, photographers, socialites, new school actors, models, directors, designers, basically the who’s who of everything… then all the academy award attendees and winners show up and it becomes the party of the year.
the venue changed this year. for quite a while the party had been held at the sunset tower hotel just a few blocks from our house. we eat at the sunset tower weekly, so to be honest it was great to have our normal table yesterday for brunch on the terrace, usually it’s closed to get ready for the party.
the party moved down the block to the parking lot of the sunset plaza shopping area. they built a free standing venue that overlooked the city lights of L.A. not much changed for us, the streets were all still blocked off and as i set in bed i could see the sky lit up with all the lights from the party… one of the things i truly love about L.A.
here are a few pics from the party of the year, see more here. i love it because everyone changes into new outfits, a little more casual and comfortable, however, in most cases everyone looked better than they did on the oscar red carpet. all in all, the fashion at this years oscars was a let down, but it doesn’t look like the vanity fair party was- let’s party!
