New Year, new parties! The holiday season may be over, but the parties haven’t stopped — and we’ve made it our resolution to continue to bring you the-best-of-the-best parties. This week: Michelle Yeoh and Cate Blanchett dine with Louis Vuitton, Bella Hadid hosts a dinner perfect for Dry January, and the stars are at Sundance. Here, our favorite looks:
Dream-Dinner Duo: Michelle Yeoh & Colman Domingo
To kick off awards season, Louis Vuitton hosted a star-studded dinner in Los Angeles that was basically our dream-dinner-party guest list, including Yeoh and Colman Domingo. Does a film with them playing best friends exist yet?
Best Use of Layers: Cate Blanchett
At the same event, Blanchett introduces a new way of layering. This is kind of like how you layered T-shirts over your long-sleeved tees in middle school. Except way better, of course.
Best Reunion: Meghann Fahy, Este Haim & Haley Lu Richardson
Also in attendance: Some of our favorite White Lotus stars, Meghann Fahy and Haley Lu Richardson, pose with Este Haim.
Best Boots: Kelly Rowland & Shay Mitchell
No better way to celebrate celebrity aesthetician and founder Shani Darden’s newest launch, the Triple Acid Signature Peel, than with a dinner party at her home. Her friends and clients Kelly Rowland and Shay Mitchell gave us some serious winter-boot inspiration while posing by the pool. They were also glowing. Okay, we’re convinced — we’ll buy the peel.
Our Favorite Models Off Duty: Paloma Elsesser & Bella Hadid
Celebrating Sakara partnering with Kin Euphorics, the drink of your Dry January, co-founder Hadid and model Paloma Elsesser posed for a few pics. Guests enjoyed plenty of leafy dishes and, of course, had lots of Kin Euphorics on deck.
Best Girl Group
Group photos can be challenging, but we think Amber Ruffin, Tina Leung, Chloe Flower, and Jeannie Mai Jenkins nailed it. So if you need something to reference next time you pose with your besties, let this be it. The group joined Hennessy and Phillip Lim to celebrate Lunar New Year, and guests sipped from bottles designed by Chinese artist Yan Pei-Ming and enjoyed dinner by chef Mark Yu.
Best Accessories: JoJo
The singer stopped by Collxab co-founder Andrew Warren’s 30th-birthday bash in Miami to sing “Happy Birthday” and a few of her hits. Yes, we also have “Leave (Get Out)” stuck in our heads now.
Best Makeup Looks: Coco Jones & Amber Riley
To fête turning 25, Coco Jones paired up with Grey Goose for her birthday party in L.A. at Melroseplace. If you need any beauty or style inspiration for your birthday party, feel free to reference this pic of Coco Jones and Amber Riley.
Best Suits: Daisy Ridley & Brittany O’Grady
The darling duo that is Daisy Ridley and Brittany O’Grady put on their best suits for the Sometimes I Think About Dying cast party with Chase Sapphire at the Sundance Film Festival.
Best Pair: Sonya Yoncheva & Piotr Beczala
Fedora soprano Sonya Yoncheva and tenor Piotr Beczala grab a few quick pics between dancing at the Met Opera’s New Year’s Eve gala.
