DIOR IN SAN FRANCISCO: The California Palace of the Legion of Honor was the dramatic setting Friday night for the Christian Dior-sponsored Mid-Winter Gala. Kate Bosworth, Kate Mara, Jordana Brewster, Suki Waterhouse and model Anne Vyalitsyna, all in Dior, natch, provided the eye candy while Alexandra Richards played the part of DJ. “This is my big debut party in San Francisco,” Vyalitsyna said. “I just moved to the city and I’m so happy to be here.” Brewster used the opportunity to plug her latest movie, “Furious 7.”
“I love the action of this film, and I adore Vin Diesel,” she said. The event, a fund-raiser for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, was founded over a decade ago by honorary cochairs Vanessa Getty and Trevor Traina, Kathryn Lasater and Allison Speer. Pamela Baxter, Ken Fulk, and Jenny and Roman Coppola were among the others nibbling on lobster salad on Dior-engraved plates. Some time after midnight, as Richards played “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” cowritten by dad Keith, guests headed for the exits. It was time to call it a night. “Adored,” was how Fulk summed up the evening.
