Party Of The Week: All the fun of the Fair at Oscars bash
Friday 12 March 2010
The Vanity Fair post-Oscars party, hosted by its editor in chief, Graydon Carter, was held at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles.
A fake floor had been installed over its swimming pool to create more space for the hoards of Hollywood superstars.
Victoria Beckham came directly from Elton John's Aids Foundation bash and caused a hold-up on the red carpet as she posed for photographers.
Cameron Diaz, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Robert Downey Jr., Kristen Stewart, Diane Kruger, Zac Efron and Kate Bosworth were all squashed together inside the packed party.
The Best Actress winner, Sandra Bullock, clutched her Oscar proudly. She was joined by other Oscar winners including Best Director, Kathryn Bigelow, and Best Actor, Jeff Bridges. The artist Ed Ruscha, Rupert Murdoch, tennis star Serena Williams and the Black Eyed Peas mingled with Meryl Streep, Ben Stiller and Steve Martin.
Joan Collins and her novelist sister, Jackie, had been at the Vanity Fair dinner earlier, where they shared a table with 93-year-old Kirk Douglas, and Jane Fonda to watch the ceremony. Inglourious Basterds actor Eli Roth held hands with Peaches Geldof on the red carpet. He had started partying at 2pm before the Oscars at Quentin Tarantino's pizza, champagne and cupcakes party. Million Dollar Baby star Hilary Swank missed the Oscars ceremony itself, but she wore a revealing dress to the party.
The only thing left to do was to drop into Madonna's exclusive after-party in the Hollywood Hills. That's if you were invited along with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Penelope Cruz, Colin Firth and Oprah Winfrey...
