So many get-togethers, so couple of stars, and just about no nominees.
But the get together at the recently renovated Giorgio Armani shop on Rodeo Drive practically stopped traffic last evening.
The function was billed as a top liner for Oscar nominee Nicole Kidman, who was radiant. And Kidman was primarily pleased to see her “Rabbit Hole” star from a several yrs ago, Miles Teller, who’s about to enjoy “Godfather” producer Al Ruddy in the Paramount Additionally mini sequence, “The Supply.” Teller his wonderful wife, Keleigh.
There were being a ton of other acquainted faces in the social gathering. But when Roberta Armani, the designer’s daughter, went to the front entrance she returned with actual royalty: Sophia Loren, with her son director Eduardo Ponti. By then Nicole had proceeded by way of the home, so that she and Loren had been keeping down opposite corners. The place experienced what they simply call “buzz.” Like insane.
Media mogul Byron Allen was there with his exquisite mother, decked out in Armani head to toe. Actor Colman Domingo from “The Walking Dead’ and about 15 other assignments was on hand, as was “Dopesick” creator Danny Solid. Youthful Michael Gandolfini, son of the late James and star of “The Several Saints of Newark” told me about all the projects he was involved with. LA socialites like Kathy Hilton, Nikki Haskell, and Marjorie Gubelman ended up in attendance.
And then were was “Dune” director Denis Villeneuve, who told me “Dune Component 2″ is previously in production. I asked about Zendaya, who appeared just toward the finish of ‘”Part 1.” Denis certain me, “There will be a lot of Zendaya in Component 2.” He also stated he was knocked out looking at the youthful actress in “Euphoria.”
Sebastian Stan — our Bucky from the Marvel universe– waited to speak to Nicole. I explained to her, “Don’t get way too close, he’ll take a bite out of you.” I was referring to his Hulu movie, “Fresh.” But Sebastian exhibited no eating desire in Kidman.
Sophia Loren– as of yesterday afternoon, she claimed she was not attending the Oscars. She gained compliments for her 2019 motion picture, “The Life Ahead,” and allowed a several individuals to have pics taken with her. She is 87 and much more gorgeous than at any time. The reality that she selected Armani around events offered by Chanel and other designers speaks volumes, I think. Loren is the ultimo classico!
PS Just so you know Armani is not just for the seniors, coming in as we have been leaving was “Borat” star Maria Bakalova, who’s taken to the pink carpet really properly. Designer Zac Posen was there, also, with loads of young stars.
