It was an extraordinary kick off to Oscars weekend in Los Angeles…
On Saturday evening, the cast of the Oscar-nominated film, “12 Years a Slave,” came together at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood for an intimate cocktail and dinner affair. Producer, Brad Pitt and the stunning Angelina Jolie were of the first guests to arrive, and quickly made a beeline for the GREY GOOSE bar before turning to greet other cast members who began to trickle in. Brad Pitt opted for a classic GREY GOOSE Le Fizz, while his longtime love Angelina Jolie sipped a GREY GOOSE Lower East Side, exclaiming that it was here “new favorite cocktail.” Director Steve McQueen made his way through the crowd, along with Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor and the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o, in a bright printed dress by Jonathan Crowell. Lupita in particular was joined by several members of her own family, who hugged and congratulated her throughout the cocktail hour. Michael Fassbender was one of the last to arrive, cheerily greeting guests with a GREY GOOSE Le Fizz in hand, and catching up with Brad Pitt on the balcony.
