Last night was good… Ryan Philippe, SRO’s book signing at Stella McCartney, & Apple from the Green Girls!
In that very order. I wanted to do some sort of twist on Ice Cube’s, “Today was a good day”, but I couldn’t seem to make it work. ANYWAY, for those of us in LA & New York… you know how you always seem to run into the same 1 celebrity over & over (my husband went through a phase where he saw Giovani Ribisi so often it made him angry. Who’s yours???). I have the good luck of mine being the oh-so-gorgeous Ryan Philippe. My friend Sara and I were on our way to the Style, Naturally book signing at Stella McCartney and we decided to pop into an old haunt for a pre-party drinkie. There he was with his best gal, his darling kids and Breckin Meyer… we locked eyes, smiled, I secretly melted, and the exchange was over… but still. I rarely swoon. Mr.Philippe = swoon.
Moving on… Next was the actual party for Summer Rayne Oakes‘ book, Style, Naturally. First, the location was brilliant – Stella McCartney’s shop here on Beverly is just lovely. We mingled on the back patio, drinking organic Veev cocktails & eating delish vegan passed hors d’oeuvres by Akasha (fantastic blinis!), while Summer – looking gorgeous, of course – did her thing and a dj played quite decent music. I have to say – it was absolutely one of the nicest “Eco” events (or maybe I should just say events) to which I’ve ever been! The people were good-looking AND friendly, the atmosphere was perfect and vibe was easy (no paparazzi). Total enjoyment!
To make the evening even more special, I met The Green Girls‘ very own, Apple Levy (pictured below)! After she interviewed SRO, we both found ourselves waiting for the all female valet team, Valet of the Dolls (I kid you not). She was vibrant, kind and complementary.
Last night was a good night. Eck… it still didn’t work, but whatever.
