Gathering together for an intimate dinner party, a handful of Hollywood ladies prettied up the Chanel Boutique on Robertson Blvd. in Los Angeles, California on Thursday night (October 27).
Among those on-hand to toast the professionals who pretty them up before public appearances and time in front of the cameras were "Straw Dogs" darling Kate Bosworth and "True Grit" cutie Hailee Steinfeld, who tweeted prior to dinner's kickoff, "On my way to dinner at Chanel! So excited!"
Pop star turned professional party girl Britney Spears has been snubbed by fashion designer and model Lydia Hearst at the New York Fashion Week.
Britney had requested a limited edition Heatherette clutch bag designed by Hearst, but her request was turned down as the designer-model didn’t think that she was a good role model.
A source told the New York Daily News: “Britney wanted to go backstage at the Heatherette fashion show during New York Fashion Week to collect a bag and promised to carry it to her front-row seat at where she would be photographed with it. But there were only 100 bags and her offer was politely declined.”
