I was going to cover the annual Art of Elysium gala, which is always held the Saturday before the Golden Globes, and it’s an event that is usually well-attended by a handful of A-listers, plus an assortment of B-listers and Fashion Girls. But last night’s gala was pretty boring and barely anyone important came out. You know why? Because all of the big names came out for Sean Penn’s “3rd Annual Help Haiti Home Gala” sponsored by Armani. Which… I mean, good for Sean. This fundraiser benefited the Haiti charity he started several years ago, so he behaved himself and everything (funny/interesting sidenote: the same day as Penn’s fundraiser, his ex-wife Robin Wright confirms that she’s engaged to her boy-toy Ben Foster! HA.)
Luckily, Sean Penn’s main lady Charlize Theron was there to support her man. Charlize looked really good in this Givenchy minidress. Her hair looks great too. Apparently, Charlize & Sean were all coupley and kissy-face at the event too.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky gave us a preview of what I’m assuming will be their loved-up, knocked-up appearance at the Golden Globes tonight. Chris is a presenter, and I will so disappointed if Elsa isn’t there, dominating all of the attention.
Diane Kruger in Preen. It seems a bit fancy and overblown for what was basically a cocktail party fundraiser. The dress seems more suited for, like, a ballet or opera gala.
Winona Ryder. I can’t find the designer ID, it may be vintage. She looks lovely, but you know what’s funny? Winona’s frenemy Gwyneth Paltrow was at this event too. HA.
Allison Williams in Osman. It’s okay. I just can’t get excited about this girl.
Pam Anderson – I know it’s crazy, but I really like her short hair. The dress is awful and she looks pretty rough otherwise, but the hair is cute. Pam also announced at the event that she had remarried Rick Solomon. Because of course.
Emma Thompson and her beautiful daughter Gaia Wise (best name ever).
Paris Hilton! Hahahaha.
