“Everything turned out perfectly, only now I’m too cold to wear my party dress,” exclaimed a chilly Nadja Swarovski atop the Thompson Beverly Hills hotel on Wednesday night.


Even though her husband dutifully carried around her black Alexander McQueen frock and shoes, she chose to stay warm in the Rock’ n’ Republic jeans and Marni fur jacket she had been wearing to set up the installations for her annual Runway Rocks pre-Oscar event.

As costume designers, harried stylists and carefree starlets like Kate Sumner and Melissa George gathered for cocktails, the DJ spun remixes of “Diamonds are Forever” in homage to the glittering gowns on display and the crystal-lined swimming pool.

“I love crystal, but there’s a price you pay for style,” said Alice Eve, who pointed to the bruises she acquired after partying at the BAFTA awards in London in a set of heavy Swarovski studded bangles.
