Where: Variety Building Who Was There: Jenna Elfman, Bodhi Elfman, Rodney Bingenheimer, George Takei, Jan Perry, Charles Phoenix, Laura Diaz, Ken Bernstein, James Rainey, Jeff Lewis. Other Details: To celebrate 50 years of covering our dear hometown, Los Angeles Magazine took over the lobby of the Variety building for a grand shindig. From photobooths to a Cadillac giveaway and one of the most impressively elaborate cakes we've ever seen, guests had plenty to keep themselves busy with in between sampling cocktails and an array of hors d'eouvres.
Green Lantern Premiere After Party
Where: Across the Street from Grauman's Chinese Theatre Who Was There: Angela Bassett, Blair Rich, Donald De Line, Jeff Robinov, Michael Clarke Duncan, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, Ryan Reynolds, Sue Kroll, Tim Robbins. Other Details: Guests at the Hollywood premiere of predicted summer blockbuster Green Lantern filed out of Grauman's Chinese Theatre after the star-studded screening and shuffled across Hollywood Blvd to the tent pitched for the after party. VIPs mingled over cocktails inside the tent which was decorated with futuristic green lights and show-stopping Green Lantern-themed installations. Hopefully not too many guests tripped and hurt themselves as basic human functions, like say, walking, when Ryan Reynolds is in the room can become hugely difficult, complicated tasks. [Photo via]
Billabong's 5th Annual "Design For Humanity" Benefit Event With Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
Where: Paramount Studios Who Was There: Brittany Curran, Caitlin Crosby, Holly Madison, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Sean Stewart, Chantal Stewart, Trace Cyrus, Sarah Carroll, Jayson Blair, Laura Slade Wiggins, Spencer Falls, Ty Pennington, Patrick Warburton. Other Details: For the 5th annual "Design For Humanity" event, guests were invited out to the "NY Street" backlot at Paramount Studios for a large-scale fashion-music-art block party-style night. But the event had a larger purpose than simply showing guests a good time, with proceeds benefiting Vh1's Save the Music Foundation. The night featured DJ sets by Tina T, Mike Relm, and Mark Moreno, a Billabong bikini fashion show, food trucks, and art installations. But the highlight of the night had to be the live performance by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros who must have taken a disco nap before since they had that 6am sunrise show with the Flaming Lips in the graveyard earlier that day.
