Chateau Marmont Gets Gussied Up for 'Marie Antoinette' Release Party
It pains us to have to write about yet another celebrity filled night at the Chateau Marmont, but this one differs in that the hotel actually underwent a bit of a costume change for the release party of "Marie Antoinette"--the new film by Sophia Coppola, starring Kirsten "Vampire Teeth" Dunst.
Styles and Scenes of the LA Times reports that the lobby was cleared out and decorated with set costumes and props from the movie:
The Chateau was transformed into a tiny Versailles with a ballroom, crystal chandeliers, Louis XIV chairs, period rugs, huge gilded mirrors and bouquets of pink roses/ gardenias.
Perrier Jouet was flowing and a decadent dessert banquet was piled with white chocolate boxes containing tiny berries, pastel-colored French macaroons, meringue, tarts, pink and lavender cupcakes and petite cotton candy.
Owner Andre Balazs went on to say that the other time the hotel cleared out the hotel lobby was for Sophia's 17th birthday.
Also spotted in attendance at the party were Dunst's co-star Jason Schwartzman, Orlando Bloom, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Courtney Love, Mischa Barton, Drew Barrymore and the Strokes.
We wonder if Lindsay Lohan was spying from the hotel staircase?
