Ladies First

| July 30, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY Women In Film feted the Crystal + Lucy Awards fundraising dinner at The Beverly Hilton with a new theme, “Close Up,” and some red-carpet treatment for Hollywood’s most daring luminaries. Making this year’s honor roll were Sofia Coppola, Laura Linney, Hailee Steinfeld, Rachel Morrison, George Lucas and the five fabulously talented female leads from AMC’s Mad Men. THE SCENE Second-time host Jenna Elfman laughed at her “always a host, never an honoree” status, while an audience packed with past honorees, including Debra Messing, looked on. Further entertainment by recently crowned American Idol Candice Glover and rival Angie Miller came between riveting speeches from WIF President Cathy Schulman and presenters including Michael B. Jordan and Kathleen Kennedy. THE HIGHLIGHTS In tribute to the female crew members of AMC’s Mad Men who help make the show a success, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Jessica ParĂ© and Kiernan Shipka (Christina Hendricks was shooting on location) read off the crew ladies’ names during their acceptance speech.
