From the black marble lobby to the waterbeds on the rooftop, every inch of The Downtown Standard crawled with rockers and the girls who love them last week when Phantom Planet came to town. Claire Danes and boyfriend Ben Lee snuggled in a corner as they chatted with Selma Blair (drummer Jason Schwartzman’s main squeeze), and Donovan Leitch held Ione Skye in a brotherly headlock while greeting fellow musician Mike Einziger of Incubus.
"No, these aren’t girls’ jeans!" Phantom Planet’s slender lead singer, Alex Greenwald, cried indignantly to his buddies. "They’re my special concert jeans for good luck."
The band took a break from their yearlong tour to play a Levi’s-sponsored gig on the unfinished mezzanine level and to premiere the video for their latest single, "Lonely Day," directed by Roman Coppola.
"How would I describe them?" asked fan Kirsten Dunst. "They’re…catchy? No, they’re just…a catch!" she said arching an eyebrow and laughing.
Coppola, who finished cutting the video only hours earlier, was a little intimidated by the prospect of projecting it on the hotel’s white marble sides.
"I don’t wanna bring too much attention to it so people have high expectations," he said. "It’s actually a very modest story."
But Schwartzman had other ideas: "It would be great if this was our calling card and we were like super-heroes, and whenever somebody needed us they projected our video into the sky and we’d show up, like Batman."
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
