Last Night's Parties: Julie Andrews, Cher, Colin Firth, Oprah, And Other Legends Hit New York

by Chiara Atik · November 9, 2010

Given that we work at a website that requires us to spend at least 2-3 nights a week at parties with celebrities, waiting in line for the bathroom next to them, fighting with them for cabs, we really don't get starstruck too often. Last night was an exception. Last night we saw Cher, Oprah, Julie Andrews, Colin Firth, and Julia Roberts. Last night was incredible.-
