Oscar Week Kicks Off With Vanity Fair’s New Hollywood Party

The night was definitely still young Tuesday at Vanity Fair’s New Hollywood party in Los Angeles.

The magazine kicked off Oscar week with a party — the first of its three-event Campaign Hollywood series — at Ysabel in West Hollywood to celebrate new and emerging talent.

Co-hosted by Yalitza Aparicio, Henry Golding and Amandla Stenberg along with VF’s west coast editor Krista Smith, the shindig’s guest list included Gemma Chan (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Joseph Mazzello (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) “Bird Box” co-stars Danielle Macdonald and Machine Gun Kelly, Francia Raisa (“Grown-ish”), Karla Souza (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), and Colton Haynes (“Arrow”). Also in attendance was Jaime King (“Black Summer”), Finn Wittrock (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), comedian Whitney Cummings and Patrick J. Adams (“Suits”), and Troian Bellisario (“Pretty Little Liars”).

The night’s pass-around menu included mini cheeseburgers, tuna tartar, and cheese balls, while dessert consisted of bite-size brownies, strawberry cheesecake, and chocolate chip cookies. The evening’s sponsor, L’Oreal Paris, provided an Instagram-worthy photo opp in front of a step and repeat emblazoned with various statements, including “I Enjoy, I Rebel, I Rule, I Create, I Empower, I Achieve, I Represent, I Am Worth It.”

The chilly weather had many guests huddled under heat lamps placed in the outdoor areas of the event space.

Campaign Hollywood continues on Thursday night when VF editor-in-chief Radhika Jones, Ava DuVernay and Zendaya co-host the annual Women In Hollywood party at Soho House.
