Armani’s Hollywood

Before the red carpet chaos, Giorgio Armani celebrated two distinguished directors.

What: To kick off Oscars weekend, the actress (and Giorgio’s niece) Roberta Armani feted nominated directors Martin Scorsese and Paolo Sorrentino with an appropriately star-studded cocktail party on Rodeo Drive.

Where: The Giorgio Armani flagship in Beverly Hills.

When: Friday, February 28th

Who: Hollywood starlets and legends alike—including Cate Blanchett, Olivia Munn, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Foxx, and Anna Kendrick—stopped by to celebrate with Sorrentino and Scorsese.

Why: While there is no remedy for award-show jitters, a cocktail or two in an Armani gown hopefully helped to take the edge off.
