This week’s party circuit was a tale of two cities, with the invariably starry Elle Women in Hollywood Gala leading the scene in Tinseltown. With a room that included Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep and Amy Schumer, Alicia Vikander summarized most guest’s feelings: “It’s quite surreal,” she said. “I can’t wrap my head around the fact that I’m in this group.” Also in Hollywood, Veuve Clicquot’s Polo Classic.
Meanwhile, in New York, Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller premiered their dramedy “Burnt”, and Lady Gaga made a buzzy appearance at the National Arts Awards, wearing spring 2016 Marc Jacobs. Here, the best party photos of the week.
