The guest list for this event was totally random — from Natalie Portman to Maria Menuonos, which sounds like the subtitle of a retrospective of Hollywood brunettes on VH1 — and accordingly, so were everyone’s ensembles. Just you wait.
STELLA: Psst. Mom. MOM.
MELANIE: Shhh. I’m concentrating very hard on this fine Ford automobile.
ANTONIO: What is it, Stella?
STELLA: Did I miss a memo? I mean… I’m looking at Daryl… were we SUPPOSED to dress up like some kind of alternative fuel source?
ANTONIO: I thought those were her kitchen curtains.
MELANIE: BE QUIET.
STELLA: I’m just very confused…
MELANIE: PEOPLE. It’s party for a HATCHBACK. OBVIOUSLY we are supposed to be incredibly formal and fancy.
ANTONIO: Now I’m confused.
DARYL: Hey dudes. Has the fjord party started yet? When do we leave?
MELANIE: EVERYBODY JUST FACE FORWARD AND THINK ABOUT AIRBAGS AND BLUETOOTH AND FUEL ECONOMY.
ANTONIO: Oh, my.
I love Melanie Griffith giving somebody the ol’ side-eye up in there.
Ladyfriend, you’re the one with the bandeau bathing suit tied over your gown.
