The magazine on the signage may have been different, but not much else changed at the Saturday night party hosted by Stefano Tonchi. W magazine’s pre-Golden Globes bash at the Chateau Marmont penthouse was just as well-attended as the T party last year.
In fact, there were several deja vu moments, such as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes wedged into a corner and mugging for the camera, Quentin Tarantino animatedly gabbing away on the terrace, and a slew of up and comers looking wide-eyed. This year it was cover girl Rooney Mara, plus Emily Browning, Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield.
“Wow, I’ve never been up here before,” marveled Chastain of the penthouse. “It looked so cool in ‘Somewhere’ but this is better… I rode up in the elevator with Jon Hamm, and all of a sudden this arm cuts in as the door is closing and it’s Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise!”
Among the other well-heeled guests (many of whom caravanned over after the Critic’s Choice Awards) were Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Lisa Cholodenko and Diane Kruger.
“Fun party again,” said Moore on her way out the door.
