A crowd known more for their television shows and movies populated the Art of Elysium “Pieces of Heaven” art auction at Palihouse on Thursday night. But Amy Smart, who co-hosted the event, which was sponsored by Vanity Fair and BMW, gave a hint as to why she was invited. “This ring I’m wearing is being auctioned off, so I’m a hand model tonight,” she laughed as she waved her hand around. “I even had to get my nails painted purple to go with the stones.” For once, the items being auctioned were the main focus for most guests, who appeared to be seriously shopping and discussing the paintings and photographs. Of course, that didn’t stop some from chatting up the DJ, Elijah Wood. “I love your work,” gushed one guest, who was so starstruck she left her glass of beer on the turntables.
