Tuesday night The Blonde and The Brunette were lucky enough to be invited to a special evening hosted by Miu Miu for the world premier of “MUTA” a short film by Lucrecia Martel. Held at a private residence in Beverly Hills just above Sunset Boulevard, everyone immediately recognized it as the the former home of Vincent Chase on Entourage.
The soirée was orchestrated around a super-sized projection screen in the celebrity-packed outdoor courtyard. Just after dusk, the dark, contemporary “short” (hence the black invitation for an evening of NOIR) wowed the crowd and explored the lead character’s love affair with Miu Miu and everything special about the Fall collection-40’s theming, exquisite florals, sequins (especially the to-die-for glittery booties. I am already obsessed with them). If you are wondering about the fashion, it seemed like most of Young Hollywood turned out in the yet to be released Miu Miu confections projected on the screen from Hailee Steinfeld (the new face of the upcoming Miu Miu campaign), Emma Roberts, Camille Belle, Kate Mara and Diane Kruger. We also spotted Malin Akerman, Jeremy Renner, China Chow (in a great dress from the current collection), Alice Eve, Cat Deely, Katie Cassidy, Ashley Tinsdale to Marilyn Manson (not in Miu Miu). Less structured hairstyles were also seemed to be the perfect summer “do”.
Miu Miu didn’t miss a beat with the line’s nostalgia theme cleverly mimicked throughout the event. Special touches included red screening lounges everywhere, a great dj (o,k, tha’s not vintage but an important ingredient along with the martinis served), cigarette girls with their trays showcasing the about to be introduced Miu Miu sunglass collection (and you could try them on and get fun Polaroids), old-fashioned movie cameras and a vintage Rolls-Royce (or was it a Bentley) on display. The only question I have is ” When is the next party?” Great job Miu Miu.
