Nat hits La-la land

, Prev Next

Last month I got to go to Los Angeles to soak up the pre-Oscar buzz. It's a great time to be in La-la land – all the celebs are in town and if you can't spot a star at that time, then you're not looking hard enough. We did a 'homes of the stars' tour, and it turned out that it was garbage day, so if you were a real die-hard celeb fan you could have got some good goss by digging through the bins! We caught a glimpse of Halle Berry and David Arquette, but the funniest thing was the hordes of die-hard Michael Jackson fans that camp outside his house all the time, just hoping for a glimpse.

I also got invited to the glitzy party at Chateau Marmont for the launch of V Australia, the new airline that's flying from Oz to LA. THAT was a fun night! Richard Branson is lovely and really knows how to throw a party. I also enjoyed catching up with Catriona – it's rare I get to have a night out with Treens as we're usually on opposite sides of the world! The party was full of A-listers, it was like a who's who of Hollywood! I managed to get to see Drew Barrymore, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, and Jesse Spencer from House. It was a fabulous night!
