Last night, The Supper Club Los Angeles, Angeleno Magazine and publicist Nancy Kane hosted a party at Leon Logothetis’s Hollywood Hills house to fete British actress Natalie Press, nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her role in Fifty Dead Men Walking. -
Old Hollywood was the evening’s theme, and the 140 guests—including Rose McGowan, Stephen Cojocaru, Adam DiVello, Carly Steel, Sebastian Copeland, Nicholas Pepper and Stephen Puri—sported their finest retro attire and enjoyed the panoramic Mulholland view as professional crooner Max Fontaine sang Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin standards.
Guests ate canapés prepared by Made by Meg Catering, gathered in the back room for a Chivas tasting, and sipped Bansai Sake and VeeV cocktails while discussing—what else?—their plans for Oscar weekend. While everybody was on their best behavior early in the evening (helped by the fancy clothing and sparkling tunes, no doubt), soon the soccer game was on in the living room and the kitchen was jammed to capacity, with the caterers from Made by Meg barely able to walk two feet without being accosted for more treats. (The Kitchen 24 cupcakes fared equally well.)
As the party came to an end, and following a game of Harvard-Yale one-upmanship between two guests supervised by Natalie herself (whose gorgeous dress, she confessed to us, was lent to her by Rose McGowan), a group including director George Hickenlooper and actor Spencer Garrett, co-star of his upcoming Kevin Spacey film Casino Jack, headed to the Sunset Towers, where we encountered and chatted with Lawrence Fishburne, his wife Gina Torres, Lee Daniels (director of Oscar nominated film Precious), Diahann Caroll, and Lenny Kravitz, who were having a late dinner.
Ah, Hollywood, you’re just a name-drop away.
