Vanity Fair praises young actors, ‘Everything everywhere at once’ – WWD
Michelle Yeoh was the woman of the hour at Vanity Fair’s Friday night “Everything Everywhere All at Once” celebration during Oscar week.
Wherever she went, a crowd gathered. She received praise from left and right, and their phones captured her every move. After winning Best Actress SAG and a Golden Globe (in Comedy), Yeoh is one of the favorites to take home the Oscar in the category on Sunday.
It was tight at the packed party, in a suite at the Mandarin Oriental Residences in Beverly Hills; Originally conceived outdoors, the affair was moved indoors because of the rain. Guests squeezed through bodies to get to the bars, where the drinks of choice were champagne and Don Julio 1942.
“Excuse me, are you cutting the line?” a guest teased co-star Ke Huy Quan, nominated for Best Supporting Actor. To be fair, it was unclear where the line began and ended.
“That’s the line?” He laughed and looked confused.
Like many of the cast, he spent the evening chatting about the film’s acclaim. The whole evening the talks revolved around the Oscar nominees and the best film candidates.
Along with Richard Mille, the Swiss watchmaker, the event produced director Daniel Scheinert; Stephanie Hsu, for Best Supporting Actress; Harry Shum Jr.; Jenny Slate and Tallie Medel. The film’s costume designer, Shirley Kurata – also an Oscar nominee for Best Costume Design after scooping a trophy from the Costume Designers Guild – was among the crowd, as were Tessa Thompson, Lana Condor, Ben Barnes, Roberta Armani, Alex Edelman, David Byrne and others Natalie Morales.
Earlier in the week, the publication – which was presenting its 29th Hollywood issue – also hosted its annual Vanities fête, toasting the younger set. Hosted by rising stars Halle Bailey, Paul Mescal and Julia Garner in collaboration with TikTok at Mes Amis in Hollywood. Among them were Beatrice Grannò, Gavin Leatherwood, Madison Bailey, Maggie Rogers, Charlotte Lawrence and Jaren Lewison.
Next, the publication will unveil its Oscars after-party, a hot ticket this weekend.
