Chanel and Charles Finch Hosted a Pre-Oscars Dinner

| May 9, 2017 | Parties

Chanel and Charles Finch’s pre-Oscars dinner set the tone for Academy Awards weekend.

THE PARTY When it comes to pre-Academy Awards events, Chanel’s star-studded dinner with esteemed author Charles Finch continues to be one of the most coveted invites to snag in the City of Stars. Held at Italian hot spot, Madeo, the ninth annual soiree attracted celebs like Hailee Steinfeld, Lily Collins and Nicole Kidman, who were all outfitted in stunning ensembles by the Parisian designer. THE SCENE Prior to sitting down to dinner, guests were treated to live, upbeat music from a mariachi band—a signature element of the event—and sipped on Perrier-Jou√ęt Champagne. Following cocktail hour, partygoers enjoyed a delicious supper of the restaurant’s signature carciofi e Parmigiano salad, branzino, lemon chicken and a decadent tiramisu. THE HIGHLIGHTS While Chanel runway looks worn by A-listers at the dinner always stand out, Pharrell Williams’ run-in with the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger proved to be one of the most exciting encounters of the evening. Two living legends, indeed. -Meg McGuire
