OK! Magazine hosted a rocking Pre-Oscar party Friday night, February 22, in celebration of the 85th Academy Awards Ceremony. Celebrities came out to the newest SBE hotspot, the Emerson Theater, formally known as Playhouse and Garden of Eden. Gorgeous people mingled and danced as the DJ cranked some jamming remixed tunes. Two bars hugged the dance floor and surrounding tables. Scantilly clad waitresses served some Oscar-worthy UV Vodka cocktails, like “Les Mis Blue Raspberry Martinis.” Guests could enjoy mini-makeovers by Sexy Hair and snag some Sexy Hair hairspray, as well as try out and take home Spray and Go moisturizer from Vaseline.
I saw sporty, hot, Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson partying with a group of friends and dancing to Jay-Z’s “My Name is Hov,” dispelling any ‘pregnancy’ rumors. Red Foo stepped out on the carpet to debut his new relationship with Victoria Azorenka, the No. 1 female tennis player in the world. Taylor Armstrong got snuggly with an middle-aged man while dancing in the crowd. Brittany Gastinaeu braved the “LA cold” looking fashionable in a fur jacket and promoting her new show EyeOnStyle.
Farshad Farahat of Argo discussed his enthusiasm for the film’s recognition, although disheartened by the Academy’s failure to recognize Affleck as candidate for best director, was proud and honored to be a part of the film. Kristin Cavallari was also in attendance presumably ignoring fellow ‘Hills’ cast-mate, Stephanie Pratt.
Golnesa ‘Gigi’ Gharachedaghi tested out the new Vaseline Spray & Go products while drink free and hanging at the “Shah’s of Sunset” table with MJ Mercedes Javid and Rajabi (aka the Persian Drake). I met Prince’s guitar player who had just taken a 22 hour flight from India and expressed his desire to watch “The Brady Bunch” and go to sleep. He also let my boyfriend know he wore a tie to meet a white girl. Around 10 p.m, the nightclub was abuzz with energy and the burlesque-ish dancers surrounded us with their sexy temptress moves.
