The Party
A bevy of belles lit up Chateau Marmont’s colonnade for an intimate evening fĂȘting the iconic Parisian brand’s makeup line.

The Players

Emmy Rossum, Shiva Rose, Louise Roe, Jessica Joffe, Christina Hendricks, Michelle Monaghan, Alexia Fast, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rainey Qualley, Margaret Qualley

The Highlights
Glowing in looks created by Dior Beauty makeup artists, a slew of flawless-faced beauties—including event alums and brand devotees Kate Walsh and Emmy Rossum—gathered around a romantically inspired table set with candles and cascading pink roses. A collective gasp of excitement could be heard as guests discovered a train case sitting at each of their place settings, brimming with the line’s latest goodies including Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara and Dior Dolce Vita Lipsticks—the perfect present for Dita Von Teese, who could be spotted touching up her signature scarlet pout with a vintage handheld mirror throughout the night. But Von Teese wasn’t the only one seeing red; toward the end of the evening, Nina Dobrev was surprised with her favorite red velvet cake from Sweet Lady Jane and a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday,” sung by her fellow attendees.
