Last night I went to the Chanel fragrance party at the Chateau Marmont, celebrating the upcoming launch of Les Exclusifs de Chanel, a group of 10 distinctive fragrances that boast a lineage back to blah blah blah. All you need to know is to avoid No. 28 (peachy and cheap) and No. 18 (dog pooey). But at least I have my mother’s Christmas presents until 2016 (2015 if I hold off on the dog pooey one). The party was an intimate Sienna Miller-hosted dinner (not sure of her connection), with two banquet tables laid out in the lobby-lounge. We arrived for the cookie tray pass (props to Jessica Weiner for scoring the invite), grabbed a drink, and surveyed the post-dinner celebrity carnage. Sienna Miller was soon spotted, acting thick-as-thieves with some dark-haired girl with a beehive. Oh! Beehive girl is Lindsay Lohan! The twosome kept running off to a room upstairs all night, probably to giggle about boys. Does Lohan still stay at the Chateau? Is she even allowed there still? Does she even need to sleep? I got no positive ID on the water content of Lohan’s drink, but she was moving very freely post “appendectomy.” Cameron Diaz was spotted across the room in a ’60s mini dress (gorgeous legs!), gesticulating wildly and hugging a fat man. Fat man turned out to be Harvey Weinstein – it was funny to see Diaz swishing her tail like a show-pony for her next meal ticket. Kate Bosworth was sporting a darker crop and a darker spray-tan – think JonBenet Ramsey brown. Also spotted were ex-Mr Angelina Jolie, Johnny Lee Miller, lurking around in a trenchcoat; the stoner brother-in-law from Weeds; and fallen stylist Rachel Zoe, enthusing about Lindsay’s outfit from afar and draped in so much Chanel jewelry she rattled. Or was it her bones? Lohan was pretty much the queen bee of the night, remaining at her dinner place while a concentric ring of chairs grew ever deeper as people crowded round her, including Cameron Diaz. We left a little earlier than I wanted, necessitated by my drunk friend Ennis shoving Harvey Weinstein in the bathroom, and before Sienna got a chance to hear one of us refer to her as “Sluttyenna” (©Perez Hilton).
