Star turn out at PRISM Gallery:
We are always supportive of friend of the Truffle Jared Najjar‘s gallery PRISM which he co-owns with PC Valdmobida (the hottest artist of 2010). On Saturday, the New York/European Oscar week invasion continued with Dasha Zhukova, Nadja Swarovski, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Michael Stipe, Klaus Biesenbach, Alex von Furstenberg, Alix Goldsmith, Siran Manoukian, Clifford Einstein, Doug Aitken, David Mushegain, David Morehouse, Danny Huston, Dori Cooperman, Fabiola Beracasa, Io Bottoms, James Van Der Beek, Jennifer Missoni, Stavros Niarchos, Lady Victoria Harvey, Paige Powell, Marco Perego, Rachel Zoe, Rosson Crow, Sean McPherson, Andrea Clemente, Rupert Adams, Stefan Simchowitz, Vivi Nevo, Shala Monroque, Taryn Manning, Vikram Chatwal, Adrien Brody, Aaron Rose, Russell Simmons & many more who came out to support San Francisco-based artist Clare Rojas. Transforming the PRISM space, the exhibition features what Rojas calls domestic abstract interiors, the newest installment of her ongoing investigation of domesticity through a wide range of media, including painting, installation, and video. Her works – which share the guileless, homespun aesthetic that reveals Rojas’ origins in print-making and folklore – are nested within a larger site-specific installation that also serves as the stage for a set of videos and performances. Rojas, under the name Penny Honeywell, played an original set. You see lots more pictures on our new favorite photographer’s website – Billy Farrell.

Night Before Rained Out at Beverly Hills Hotel:
A couple friends who wound up at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Night Before party told us the rain caused the hotel to move the pool party indoors. The Olsen twins also here.
2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards:
Two words: Natalie Portman. The pregnant little lady was darling in a short yellow dress and nude shoes tip toeing on to stage to get her Spirit Award and backstage in the windy tented village set up today on the beach in Santa Monica. She was flanked by her fiance Benjamin Millepied, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, her security and event staff. Thank you to LBF Media Group and On3 Productions (who has handled the backstage for 10 years) where Spirit Awards sponsor LG set up a lounge for viewing and gifting, where we watched the awards and saw celebs, media, entertainment ppl come through like manager Evan Haneny, reporter Mark Malkin, BWR’s Steve Wilson, Erika Chrsitensen, The Wrap’s Mike Glazer, Jason Ritter and Nicole Kidman walked through with her bffer (best-friend-forever-er) Naomi Watts holding hands (in a cute platonic way). More to come on all that.
