Last night, we were lucky enough to be invited to the premiere of the movie 21, which is based on the nonfiction book Bringing Down the House. EXCITING! I’d never been to a major studio premiere! Of course the hardest thing was picking out something to wear. I choose my Erin Fetherston dress that has layers of shades of purple, and I wore a necklace that was a vintage casino chip. I love dressing up!
Before the movie at the Planet Hollywood Casino, there was a small cocktail party with drinks, popcorn, and all kinds of candy bars and other treats that you find at the movies. The director introduced and brought on stage the cast, which includes Kevin Spacey, Jim Sturgess, and Kate Bosworth (who all looked lovely). I enjoyed the movie, but of course it was not as good as the book. The after-party had great entertainment, like blackjack tables, a cool dance floor, lots of food, and acrobats that “dance” by using too long strips of fabric that are hung from the ceiling. It was a lot of fun, but I was disappointed by how bad a lot of the female guests were dressed and the fact that they just hovered at the velvet ropes and watched the Hollywood stars. It was a party! They should take advantage of it and actually party!
