Chanel And Charles Finch Throw Pre-Oscar Dinner

Rose McGowan[All photos by Mike Gardner for PMc] Before the Oscars actually happen, the nominees and the presenters are stirring in anxiety (they won't admit it, but they are). So to quell their nerves they attend Pre-Oscar dinners, like the one Chanel and Charles Finch hosted celebrating film and fashion at Madeo's on Saturday. Rose McGowan, Elizabeth Banks, Rachel Zoe, and Balthazar Getty all mingled and tried to forget about the many hours of primping they were soon to face.

Since it was a dinner to celebrate the intersection of film and fashion, an astute individual could have argued who would wear what to the Oscars based on what they wore to the dinner. (Foreshadowing is alive and well, everyone.) But since it was co-hosted by Chanel, it's no surprise some people wore Chanel. After all, it's important to be respectful of those who help take your mind off the likelihood you'll run into George Clooney on the red carpet at the Oscars and forget your own name. Or his.
