Billionaire financier Nicolas Berggruen threw his annual pre-Oscar party last night in LA. An annual event held for the past few years, Berggruen invited 800 of his nearest and dearest to the Chateau Marmont for a raucous evening. The guestlist was crazily varied: from Jane Fonda and Richard Perry, to socialite Lydia Hearst to 90's teen heartthrob James van der Beek!

Yet while the guest list may have been a bit all over the place, it was evident that the guest list was a perfect mash up of what Hollywood loves: pretty people, stars and power players.

Other famous faces in the crowd were Jerry Ferrara, Dori Cooperman, Devon Aoki, Dennis Basso, Jamie Tisch, Alex von Furestenberg, Brian Atwood and Brandon Davis.
