PASTER’S PALS: The Christmas spirit hung heavy on Wednesday in Jacqui Getty’s Los Angeles home, where Jessica Paster celebrated the launch of her holiday collection of shoes and handbags for JustFabulous. There was mistletoe over a door, and gifts of shoes from the collection for all the guests, including Emily Blunt, Hilary Duff, Felicity Jones and Andrea Riseborough, piled up under the Christmas tree. “I wouldn’t be surprised if I had a nominee walk down the Oscar red carpet in the shoes,” said Paster. “I promise you, that’s going to happen.”
She had a Golden Globe winner sporting her shoes for the evening in Blunt, who paired the footwear with a Tom Ford tux, looking every bit the fashion editor’s assistant role she played in “The Devil Wears Prada” and recently reprised in “The Muppets.” Between Miss Piggy and Anna Wintour, Blunt pegged Miss Piggy as the tougher boss. “She’s incredibly volatile,” Blunt explained. “I feel like she would throw stuff.”
