Saint Laurent has entered the Oscar party race.
The legendary French fashion house held its first pre-Oscar soiree on Friday night. Hosted by Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello, the evening began with a VIP dinner for about 50 people at the Harvey house, a John Lautner-designed architectural gem in Los Feliz owned by Mitch Glazer and Kelly Lynch. A late-night reception for about 150 included a performance from indie band Wet Leg and waiters who passed around steak tar tar on potato chips and tomato crostini. One attendant made the rounds with a wood humidor to offer guests brown and gold cigarillos.
The guest list included Zendaya, Pedro Almodóvar, Deni Villeneuve, Rosé, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hailey Bieber, Zoë Kravitz, Al Pacino, Troye Sivan, Andie MacDowell, Bill Murray, Dave Franco, Jack Dylan Grazer, Joachim Trier, Maude Apatow, Jessie Buckley, Justice Smith, Amber Valletta and Joe Kerry.
