PARTIES

Starry Night


Guests at the Los Angeles-based Hammer Museum’s 13th annual Gala in the Garden Saturday could have been forgiven for thinking they accidentally wandered into the Shrine Auditorium by mistake. Sponsored by Bottega Veneta for the third year in a row, the event’s crowd was thespian-heavy, boasting Emma Stone, Elizabeth Banks, Amanda Peet, Patricia Arquette, Marisa Tomei, Kiernan Shipka and Salma Hayek among its ranks. Some of that was undoubtedly due to the night’s co-chairs Julia Roberts and Danny Moder, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Bottega Venenta creative director Tomas Maier, not to mention the evening’s honorees, Diane Keaton and artist Paul McCarthy. But if at first glance, it had the shimmer of a celebrity-heavy Academy Awards ceremony there was one crucial difference: everyone went home a winner.
