Chanel and Charles Finch Host Annual Pre-Oscars Bash, the Week’s Hot Ticket

Guests included Chanel ambassadors Kristen Stewart, Phoebe Tonkin, Soo-Joo Park and Whitney Peak.

Chanel is back in Tinseltown.

The French house hosted its annual Pre-Oscars dinner party with man Charles Finch on Saturday night, a coveted invitation on the eve of the awards ceremony.

Irish actor Jamie Dornan, star of “Belfast,” said: “I’ve always been happy about this, with a number of awards including Best Director and Best Picture.

He’s had a busy week with all the big parties leading up to the big day.

“I’ve done this a couple of times and it’s always been a great crack,” he said of the blow. “And I usually know a lot of people here. They usually let me sit with the people I want to spend time with, so, yes, it’s one of the fun this week. ”

Since 2009 – limited to 150 seats – Chanel and Finch have gathered nominees and A-listers to toast Oscars Week, wearing a large number in head-to-toe Chanel outfits for the occasion. Usually held at Madeo’s original location in West Hollywood, which has closed, this is the third time the gala has been held at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge. Last year’s love affair was cancelled due to the pandemic. This year marks its return.

“It’s always been one of my favorites to be able to attend and to be able to do this after a long time, it’s a dream come true,” said actress and model Poppy Delevingne.

She wore a colorful sequin knit Chanel ensemble, with a matching small bag.

She joked: ‘It’s a tiny bag with a lipstick literally.

Of all the films nominated, Netflix’s “The Power of the Dog” is a standout, Delevingne said. “It stays with you.”

She hopes Kirsten Dunst wins best supporting actress for her performance: “I think it’s just different than anything I’ve ever seen her do before. She’s very rough and strong. “

Dunst’s collaborator and longtime friend, director Sofia Coppola, is also very supportive of her.

“I’m really happy for Kirsten; she and Jane Campion, I’ll cheer for,” she said of the film’s director. I’m glad to see them organized.”

Coppola, a Chanel Rug, wore a silk robe and black wool gown and skirt from the Métiers d’Art 2022 collection, paired with a glittering belt.

“I’ve always loved Chanel, ever since I was a kid,” she said. For me, it’s just the epitome of fashion, french elegance, and so I have a attachment. I love what Virginie [Viard] is doing with it. ”

For Molly Sims, “The Power of the Dog” is also her choice, and there’s obviously a reason; Her producer husband, Scott Stuber, is the head of Netflix’s original films.

“Think about red,” she teased of her look as she stood on the Oscars carpet, as she stood next to Stuber.

It’s elbows during cocktail hour, outdoors outside the restaurant. Guests included Chanel ambassador Kristen Stewart – nominated for best actress for her role as Princess Diana in “Spencer” – who dated fiance Dylan Meyer; Phoebe Tonkin; So-Joo Park and Whitney Peak. There are hit filmmakers – Campion, Francis Ford Coppola, Denis Villeneuve, Ava DuVernay, David O. Russell and Julie Delpy; Actors Joan Collins, Harvey Keitel, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Brie Larson, Chris Pine, Annabelle Wallis, Henry Golding, Lily James, Rashida Jones, Kate Beckinsale, Sienna Miller, Minnie Driver and Regé-Jean Page along with singers Giveon and Rita Ora, who have arrived with boyfriend Taika Waititi.

“Spencer!” Ora exclaimed, when asked who she would choose this year.

She wears an all-pink leather number.

“The Chanel family has always known about my vibe,” the singer said before getting lost in the crowd.
