Celebs attend exclusive reception on Stage 5 for the Giorgio Armani photo exhibit

At Paris Photo’s April 25 preview, the French accents were thick but the celebrity ties were even thicker on the Paramount lot in Hollywood.

“We don’t get invited to that many things,” joked Kyra Sedgwick. “So we both decided to finally come out.” Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon were glued at the hip as they browsed the photos of Haitians.

A black carpet lined with flawless models led guests Sean Penn, Minnie Driver and Trevor Donovan to an exclusive reception on Stage 5 for the Giorgio Armani photo exhibit.

Also hand in hand were Josh Duhamel and Stacy Ferguson a.k.a. Fergie. Duhamel kept a watchful eye on his pregnant wife, telling her, “Baby, you go first, I’ll follow” as they approached the cameras.

“Desperate Housewives” twin actors Max and Charlie Carver also attended.

“We have some good friends here,” Charlie said. “We wanted to learn more about Haiti and it seemed like a really good cause.” Then Max added, “Also, we’re huge Sean Penn fans, but shhhh! We didn’t say that.”

While most celebs dressed to the nines in sharp Armani suits and dresses, Penn wore a leather jacket and jeans. He comfortably posed with Roberta Armani on the carpet.
