Giorgio Armani Brings Out the A-List

You would have thought that Giorgio Armani’s Privé Spring Summer 2007 Collection was an Oscar pre-party. The star wattage was unbelievable. Katie Holmes was there, minus Tom Cruise, and Lance Armstrong and designer Tory Burch made their first public debut as a couple.

The legendary designer’s pre-Oscar debut at gazillionaire Ron Burkle’s estate Saturday night was, as one seasoned fashionista described it, “intense.”

The evening included a showing of the Giorgio Armani Privé Spring Summer 2007 Collection. “There was a celebrity in every seat in the front rows,” one guest told me. “It was overwhelming.”

The 400 attendees included Lance Armstrong, Cate Blanchett, Beyoncé, Adrien Brody, Naomi Campbell, Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Penélope Cruz, Faye Dunaway, Clint Eastwood, Andy Garcia, Al Gore, Josh Hartnett, Katie Holmes, Anjelica Huston, Angie Harmon, Anne Hathaway, Lauren Hutton, Joshua Jackson, Quincy Jones, Chris Kattan, Anthony Kiedis, Diane Kruger, Jason Lewis, Olivier Martinez, Debi Mazar, Dylan McDermott, Helen Mirren, Sandra Oh, Clive Owen, Sidney Poitier, Natalie Portman, Martin Scorsese, Channing Tatum, John Travolta and Kelly Preston, Gore Vidal, Dita Von Teese, Mark Wahlberg, Mischa Barton and Ziyi Zhang.
