On Friday, Larry Gagosian had a luncheon at his house, showing Richard Prince’s work. Fabiola Beracasa, Derek Blassberg, Barry Gesser, Aby Rosen, Tico Mugrabi, katie Robbins and Simon Ruben, Chris Bass, and Desiree Gruber were all there along with a bunch of different art collectors from all over the world.
Later that evening there was so many pre-Oscar parties going on. Some people went to Ari Emanuel’s WME party in Brentwood; some to Bryan Lourd’s CAA party in Bel-Air; and some to Dennis Basso’s birthday party.
Then it was off to Nicolas Berggruen’s party at Chateau Marmont with Stavros Niarchos, Aby Rosen, Russell Simmons, Lady Victoria, Ozlem Onal, Lucas White, Nellee Hooper, Vikram Chatwal, Justin Murdock, Alex von Furstenberg, and hundreds of other guests.
Then finally we went to Ally Bernstein’s James Franco event at his new bar, Writer’s Room. There were a ton of celebs, but no photos were allowed in there.
And of course, what’s a late night out in L.A. without a trip to In-N-Out!
