A gaggle of actresses, along with 200 other industry types, gathered in a Paramount Studios sound stage Friday night for a gala celebrating the launch of Mont Blanc and Signature International’s photography project to benefit UNICEF. “Normally this time of year is all about getting fluffed up,” said Lauren Hutton. “It’s nice to think about things more substantial.”
But guests including Emily Blunt, Christina Ricci, Reese Witherspoon, Susan Sarandon, Mira Sorvino and Jessica Lange still took care to show up in glitzy black tie gowns. Sienna Miller especially had clothes on the brain. She had to fly back to London for her Twenty Eight Twelve fashion show which was scheduled for Sunday night. So much for working around the Oscars. “It either shows I’m important, or more likely the opposite,” said the actress.
