Friday night in Los Angeles, Liz Goldwyn, Julie Delpy and Vanessa Von Bismarck stood out as a psychedelic swirl of color at the restored R.M. Schindler home that vintage prince Cameron Silver shares with Jeff Snyder. The party was in celebration of Pucci’s limited-edition collaboration with Champagne Veuve Clicquot to dress 1,200 bottles of La Grande Dame 1996.

While the party spilled beyond its official closing hour, a handful raced across town to the Chateau Marmont for a late-night supper, which just might go down as one of the more extreme assemblages of the summer. Though it was no surprise to see David LaChapelle turn up with Pamela Anderson (who one guest confused with that other LaChapelle plastic surgery junkie, Amanda Lepore), it was certainly startling for the two dozen at the red rose-studded table to witness party crasher Christina Aguilera.
Even Siouxsie Sioux, in town to prepare for her U.S. tour, poked fun at the former Mouseketeer. The ever-acid-tongued punk icon coyly mouthed
“M-O-U-S-E” to the squealing delight of her tablemates.
