    "Zookeeper" Premiere

    Where: Regency Village Theatre Who Was There: Ali Landry, Cher, Clint Culpepper, Donnie Wahlberg, Ernie Hudson, Henry Winkler, Jon Favreau, Karina Smirnoff, Karla Jensen, Kathy Griffin, Ken Jeong, Kevin James, Leah Remini, Leslie Bibb, Nathan Kress, Roger Birnbaum, Rosario Dawson, Todd Garner, Tony Danza, Verne Troyer. Other Details: Stars of the movie Zookeeper left their animal-infested attire at home and turned out for a premiere of MGM and Columbia Pictures' newest summer release. Attendees posed on the red carpet for pictures at the Regency Theatre in Westwood, and actors Kevin James, Leslie Bibb, and Rosario Dawson canoodled with a life-like statue of the movie's true leading role, a giant gorilla. Cher stole the spotlight for a different reason, showing up in a bizarre outfit involving a cowboy hat. Unfortunately, none of Zookeeper's other talking animals were able to attend the screening.

    Havaianas "Mercado" Pop-Up Shop Opening

    Where: Space 15 Twenty Who Was There: Mark Hunter "The Cobrasnake," Lucy Hale Other Details: A little taste of South America was brought to the States last night when Brazilian footwear company, Havaianas, known for their signature rubber flip-flops opened a pop-up shop in Space 15 Twenty. "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale was seen decorating her own pair, while pro party photographer Hunter showed off his "pretty little" toes and danced to the turntable sounds of DJ Them Jeans. The store, which houses the largest collection of the shoe line in Los Angeles, also features limited and special edition styles for those footwear fiends. And just like last night's guests, visitors to the pop-up also have the option of customizing their own pair with rhinestones and charms less embarrassing than the ones for Crocs.
