Here’s the real tea: fashion parties and celeb-filled events, which appear with a glitzy and glamorous sheen in photographs, aren’t always as fabulous as they’re portrayed. Most of the time, they consist of a lot of the same: VIPs get their pictures taken, the venues are stunning and heavily decorated, there are appetizers passed around (although truthfully, the appetizers are the real MVPs of this whole thing,) people drink, they go home. One exceptionally entertaining thing to do at these events is watch all the chance encounters occur, since the celebrities who attend have no control over who else attends. Because of this, random pairings ensue—and we’ve culled a list of the most intriguing ones from this week. See all the serendipitous link-ups brought to you by functions, here.
