From queer line dancing to a stylish get-together inside a Miu Miu shop, the week was full of people gathering to squeeze in as much partying as they can ahead of the holidays. And even if it’s cold outside, you’d never be able to tell by the warm glow on their faces and, crucially, the absence of coats (except for those who spent their week in Aspen, rightfully so). Rihanna, Paloma Elsesser, Natasha Lyonne, Bradley Cooper, and more of the best party pics this week.

Coolest Duo: Paloma Elsesser and Emily Ratajkowski

Miu Miu threw the hottest party of the week at its Upper East Side store with a selection of products picked by model Emily Ratajkowski. She wore some of her favorites at the event (including some micro shorts), alongside so many stylish guests, like Model of the Year Paloma Elsesser, in an equally cool ’fit.

Best Purple: Rihanna

When Bradley Cooper isn’t making sandwiches for Gigi Hadid and all the other women in his life, he’s taking them to his latest movie premiere. At the Los Angeles screening of Maestro, both Mulligan and Gaga showed off their platinum bobs, with Mulligan opting for a sequined navy off-the-shoulder gown and Gaga wearing an Alexander McQueen blazer and pants.
