Shoe time in Los Angeles

'Prada to Nada' premieres at L.A. Live

The premiere of “From Prada to Nada” Tuesday night at L.A. Live’s Regal Cinemas marked the first film for Pantelion, the newly formed venture between Lionsgate and Televisa, and the event had plenty of Latin flair.

“Prada” puts an East L.A. spin on “Sense and Sensibility,” even though the film was shot in Mexico, which made for an interesting shoot. As producer Linda McDonough told it, “Film production in Mexico is much more spontaneous than in the United States, which gives filmmakers from the United States a heart attack.”

Apparently, everyone survived the shoot to make the preem and the party at the Conga Room, where Pantelion’s Paul Presburger took the opportunity to praise his Latina spouse. “I went to her for advice on this film, but, of course, I go to her for advice on everything,” he said.

Stars Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Adriana Barraza, Wilmer Valderrama, Nicholas D’Agosto and guests salsa-ed the night away with margaritas in hand. First-time director Angel Gracia was “enjoying the moment” and sharing that moment in cyberspace. “I’ve been twittering my face off all day,” he said.

D’Agosto noted that shooting “Prada” was especially fun because Gracia let his actors improvise. “I did get to kiss Camilla Bella,” he said. “But that was in the script — what was I to do?”
