Yesterday evening we had the opportunity to attend yet another lovely celebrity filled cocktail party at Toronto’s Soho Hose to celebrate the world premiere of Miss Julie and Love & Mercy. We started up on the second floor which was filled with the swishy cast and crew of Miss Julie, a heart wrenching drama written and directed by Liv Ullmann, based on the play of the same title by August Strindberg, starring Collin Farrell and Jessica Chastain. Though Farrell was sadly not in attendance, Chastain radiated through the room in an elegant black and white gown with stacked silver bangles.
We headed downstairs to join the cast and crew of the film Love & Mercy including John Cusack, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Dano and producer John Wells. Surprise guest Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys was also in attendance accompanied by his wife Melinda Ledbetter, as well as Paul Dano’s girlfriend Zoe Kazan. Elizabeth Banks chatted intently with John Cusack wearing a stunning blue and white floral suit and black crop top. We eased our way into the evening sipping Grey Goose VX cocktails and chatting with their brand ambassador as well as David Kaplan of popular New York cocktail bar Death & Co.
