BABY TALK: Theodora & Callum and Coach hosted a sunset cocktail party at Ashlee Margolis’ Beverly Hills home last week, where her actress pals felt comfortable enough to kick off their shoes — literally — and do some personal shopping. “My feet are so big right now that this is heaven,” said an about-to-pop Kristen Bell as she removed her booties to try on Matt Bernson sandals. But she wasn’t all about swag. “Please, have this necklace back,” she told one of the staffers. “My neck is too fat to wear it right now and I’m sure someone else will love it.” Fellow mom-to-be Shiri Appleby, who is due in less than a week, said, “I’m glad for this party because I get so bored sitting at home waiting….I’m ready to go!” To pass the time, she skipped the Shoshanna Swimwear but tried on Coach bags that didn’t interfere with her bump, dressed in a stretchy black James Perse minidress.

Others, like Christina Hendricks, Emma Roberts, Anna Kendrick, Paula Patton, Regina King, Regina Hall and Kidada Jones simply took the chance to be social and enjoy a glass of Veuve Clicquot poolside. For Monet Mazur, who has been living with her family in Spain for the past eight months, it was a welcome break to be back in her native city. “I don’t have to feed any kids or cook for a few days. I’m enjoying the ‘me’ time,” she said as she enjoyed a poolside manicure and crudités.
