It was a starry night atop the Mr. C Hotel In Los Angeles on Wednesday night as celebs, travel folk and the usual LA party eye candy feted the Leading Hotels of the World's 85th anniversary. Yup, LHW is the same age as the Oscars.
And what better way to celebrate the joint birthday than by spotlighting movies shot in hotels? Leading Hotels of the World, of course.
Playing on loop on several flat-screen TVs throughout the party was a video montage of 85 Leading Hotels that have been featured in movies around the world over the past several decades. LHW has even created a new microsite, In the Movies, to show off all their fancy movie set hotels.
Party guests also got into the cinematic spirit by posing for photobooth snaps, sipping on wine cocktails made with Drew Barrymore's Barrymore wine label, taking candy from a movie concession stand and chomping on freshly made popcorn. Naomi Watts, Eva Longoria, Minnie Driver, Michelle Monaghan, Giada deLaurentis and even our own celebrity reviewer Josh Flagg made appearances. Head on over to Conde Nast Traveler, which co-hosted the event, to see more of the party snapshots.
Naomi Watts and her honey, Liev Schreiber spent the past couple of days hanging out at some NYC hotels. On Monday, the Aussie beauty struck some poses for a photo shoot outside of the The Cooper Square Hotel with her photographer bro Ben Watts behind the camera. The actress, who will star in the upcoming flick The International, glammed it up with some little black dresses on the streets of New York.
Then Watts and Schreiber turned out to support Ben at Hudson Hotel on Tuesday. The celebrity and fashion photographer threw a book launch party at the hotel for Lickshot, his new photo scrapbook and travel diary. The book features gritty photos, Polaroids, and hand-scrawled graffiti, held together by slashes of colored tape. Watts and Schreiber partied alongside Ben at the cocktail reception hosted by Moët & Chandon.
