The question on everyone's mind at last night's Vitamin Water party for Spring Breakers at Brassaii was will Justin Bieber show up to support his career-transitioning girlfriend Selena Gomez? In fact, it was her co-star Vanessa Hudgens who got a sweetie surprise when her main squeeze actor Austin Butler and his exaggerated pompadour popped up at the dinner. Also at the King West resto that had been beachified with sand bar table settings and ladies in neon bikinis passing trays of Jello shooters were Imogene Gleek Darren Criss and illusionist David Blaine.
Swooning over Ryan Gosling must have been trending on Twitter in Toronto last night. The Place Beyond the Pines star was at Ame with girlfriend and co-star Eva Mendes for a Bay-sponsored party and while her lace dress and turban get-up definitely got the attention of the party's fashion editor-heavy crowd, their serious gushing was saved for Gosling.
"But oh my, he doesn't disappoint," tweeted Fashion Magazine editor-in-chief Bernadette Morra.
"Standing a mere metre away from the butt, and can report that yes, it is fine. The things I do for you, ladies," added the National Post's Nathalie Atkinson.
And all the way uptown...
Yorkville is a relative ghost town compared to TIFF's now-preferred downtown 'hood so kudos to Paul Haggis and his celeb-backed charity Artists for Peace and Justice for attracting a big crowd to La Societe on Bloor for a cocktail party last night. Crushed into the restaurant's bar were Dsquared2 designers Dean and Dan Caten, My Awkward Sexual Adventure actress Emily Hampshire and Q host Jian Ghomeshi, all warming up for this afternoon's big APJ fundraising do in Rosedale co-hosted Anna Karenina's Jude Law and Imogene producer Trudie Styler.
