Amidst the slew of pre-Golden Globes celebrations, LoveGold held a cocktail party at Chateau Marmont’s Selma House on Saturday night to honor Julianne Moore, a nominee for the award for best actress, TV movie or miniseries. A veteran of the awards circuit, Moore was beaming with excitement in her Givenchy dress and vintage Van Cleef & Arpels jewels. “It never gets old,” she said. “The Golden Globes are really fun because it’s everybody in film and television and it’s great to see everybody.”
Guests including Louise Roe, Eddie Redmayne and Dita Von Teese mingled and kept snug in front of a candle-lit fireplace. LoveGold, a division of the World Gold Council, decorated the room with pieces from Neil Lane, House of Waris and Pamela Love set atop birch tree trunks and miniature bird’s nests. While Moore did not consult this year’s host, Tina Fey, about her comedic portrayal of Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live,” she did spend countless hours researching all things Palin for her role in HBO’s “Game Change,” which earned her the nomination.

“There’s a tremendous amount of footage available of her so I initially started listening to the voice and once I felt I had her vocal mannerisms down then I worked on the physicality,” she said. Between chatting with fellow nominee Sarah Paulson in front of the crowded bar and reflecting on her “bigger and more expensive” jewelry over the years, Moore kept mum about this year’s Globes dress, but revealed her quick tactic for finding the perfect attire. “I don’t like to choose from a lot. I don’t want to be overwhelmed so sometimes I’ll go to someone and ask them to make me a dress. That’s what I did this year, I just asked someone to make me a dress.”
