Meanwhile, "Twilight" hunk Kellan Lutz looked dapper in a black suit while couples like Naomi Watts and Live Schreiber and Robert De Niro and Grace Hightower worked the flower laden arrivals carpet arm-in-arm.
With Leigh Lezark, Leelee Sobieski and Alexa Chung all strutting their stuff down the red carpet, new couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West opted to skip out on the press area and head straight inside.
Talking to THR inside the Artists Dinner about her admiration for Chanel's top designer Karl Lagerfeld, Miss Kardashian said, "Karl's one of my favorite designers. Chanel's one of my favorite designers. I'm wearing Chanel tonight. I think her (Coco Chanel), as a woman, she was such a smart businesswoman with her fragrances and everything. She's really inspirational as a person. And I love the brand, I think it's really sophisticated and chic."
