Heidi Klum and fellow fashion plates Demi Moore, Amber Valleta and Lily Cole came out to West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont to fete designer Roland Mouret’s new collection for the online retailer Net-A-Porter.com. But high-fashion wasn’t the only thing on the menu for the evening.
Guests, all decked out in Mouret’s designs, enjoyed a catered dinner party in the hotel’s dining car section. While the designer held court in the center of the table set for 27, he was flanked by Klum and stylist Rachel Zoe on either side. Before getting down to dinner, guests swilled champagne and cocktails. Then they feasted on a special meal designed just for them.
On the menu?
Plates started with a salad of red oak and bibb lettuce with champagne shallot vinaigrette, as well as prosciutto and mozzarella. For the main course, there was thyme roasted chicken with white wine jus and salmon with a saffron aioli. And for dessert? A classic crème brûlée.
According to an onlooker, Moore was beaming throughout the dinner – and she even let Zoe snap a photo of her with her iPhone, which she then showed off to party guests, cooing about how beautiful everyone looked.
The Side Dish: Spotted!

But Brolin was also excited about his food. He liked his main course so much, he walked into the kitchen to tell the chef before rejoining his wife at the table.
Talk about a funny brunch bunch! After celebrating the 50th anniversary of Chicago’s famous Second City improv comedy theater, stars like Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Martin Short, Eugene Levy and more headed to Hub51 in Chicago for the restaurant’s signature buttermilk pancakes, brioche French toast, brown sugar bacon and “Martha’s famous” carrot cake – along with some mimosas!
