OSCAR WATCH: He may not be Oscar red-carpet material, but that didn’t affect the daylong love fest for Roland Mouret Wednesday. Selma Blair and Kate Bosworth stayed well beyond the end of the trunk show at the Tracey Ross shop that afternoon, and Blair was back at his side at Ross’ late-night dinner for the London designer at Soho House. “His clothes have the strongest connection to what I love to wear,” gushed Blair. “I love him!” So, too, does Sienna Miller, who snuck away from her party downstairs to show off the super-tight-at-the-rear white pants Mouret made for her. Table guests Amy Sacco, Karolina Kurkova and Natalia Vodianova slipped out before the second course because Sacco was hosting Vodianova’s 23rd birthday over at the Hollywood Standard Hotel. Stylist Phillip Bloch couldn’t believe his eyes at all of the poking at the cake. “What — these models can’t even enjoy themselves at a birthday?” he sniffed.
Mouret was back at Soho House the next day for lunch with Dita Von Teese on the terrace, while in the upstairs private dining room MAC and Jimmy Choo’s Tamara Mellon held their own luncheons. So, too, was Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes, who Kidada Jones and publicist Lara Shriftman begged for tickets to his band’s Saturday night show at the Staple’s Center.
