THE PARTY Mulberry Creative Director Emma Hill and President of Mulberry USA Carl Barbato hosted an exclusive dinner at Chateau Marmont, toasting the beloved British brand’s autumnal offerings. THE PLAYERS Emma Hill, Carl Barbato, Emily Mortimer, Brit Marling, Alice Eve, Shiva Rose, Liz Goldwyn, Marisa Tomei THE HIGHLIGHTS Upon arrival, partygoers were whisked from their poolside perches to an imaginary countryside thanks to a bevy of inventive props: Think clumps of life-size flowers, a step-and-repeat covered in illuminated butterflies, and a few faux country mice table-toppers that joined Mulberry-dressed guests for a sumptuous three-courser, capped with a very English sticky toffee pudding. Toting the collection’s Suffolk in off-white, Ashley Madekwe admitted she couldn’t get enough of the line’s new “it” bag. “It’s like a very ladylike doctor’s bag,” she gushed. “I want one in any and every color!” And, to satisfy any impromptu fashion cravings, all guests left with posh parting gifts—printed silk scarves and passport wallets.
