Vanity Fair‘s Pre-Oscar D.J. Party

Saturday night found FishbowlLA in Hollywood at Vanity Fair‘s D.J. Night, co-hosted by Fiat and L’Oreal Paris. The event was held in honor of The Pablove Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research. But it was also the last of Vanity Fair‘s long week of pre-Oscar parties. Geared toward Hollywood’s younger crowd, the event had a club-like atmosphere, with D.J.s Daisy O’Dell and NERVO rocking the dance floor into the night.

The highlight of our evening had to be meeting actress Shanola Hampton, pictured right. We’re huge fans of Showtime’s Shameless.

Also spotted in the crowd: Actress Alicia Witt, James Valentine of Maroon 5, Vanity Fair publisher Edward Menicheschi, Bitsie Tulloch (The Artist, Grimm), Janina Gavankar (True Blood), Kathleen Robertson, Jorja Fox, and a bunch more hot actresses.
