DALLAS — Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher — along with a horde of their Hollywood brethren — hit snowy Dallas for the parties leading up to Super Bowl XLV. Moore, in YSL, and Kutcher hit up the GQ-Lacoste-Cadillac bash on Friday, but dodged photographers because they had been paid to attend rival automaker Audi’s event the same evening, said sources. The duo bopped their heads to Cee-Lo Green’s energetic set at GQ, including the hits “Crazy” and “Forget You.”
Also on hand were Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker, Joe Jonas, Randy Jackson, Jessica Szohr, Adrian Grenier, Hayden Panettiere, Ryan Kwanten and former Super Bowl champion Kurt Warner. True Blood’s Joe Manganiello reminisced about meeting his fiancée at the Commissioner’s Ball at the 2009 Super Bowl, which the Steelers won — so he was again rooting for Pittsburgh. Roddick was pulling for Green Bay, as his father is a lifelong Packers fan. Neiman Marcus’ Jim Gold was rooting for the local team, however. “I used to be a Giants fan, but now that I live in Dallas, I have to be a Cowboys fan. I converted,” he confided.
At ESPN the Magazine’s Next shindig, New York Yankee Mark Teixeira arrived with teen rocker Nick Jonas, as the two share a manager. Kid Rock performed a rollicking hour-long set and was joined by Rev. Run of Run DMC for a crowd-pleasing rendition of “Walk This Way.” Meanwhile, former Kim Kardashian flame Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints declared himself “Single like a Pringle and ready to mingle.”
Sports Illustrated returned to the Super Bowl festivities after two years away, with a major blowout featuring a performance by the Black Eyed Peas and guests like Hugh Jackman, Adrien Brody and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. Playboy, a regular on the Super Bowl scene, recruited Snoop Dogg and Flo Rida as entertainment for guests including Chelsea Handler, Serena Williams and notorious party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi, who were apparently actually invited this time.
On Saturday, GQ publisher Peter Hunsinger and Lacoste’s U.S. chief executive officer Steve Birkhold again teamed up to host a steak dinner at Del Frisco’s, with guests including Chord Overstreet of “Glee” and Movado ceo Efraim Grinberg. Overstreet then hopped in an SUV with his father and headed to the Maxim blowout. At Maxim, several thousand guests packed an indoors state fair, replete with Ferris wheel, bumper cars and musical entertainment from Wyclef Jean and Jason Derulo.
