Milk-ing It

So madly in love with Adam "Seth Cohen" Brody (from The OC).

His pint-sized, cute-as-a-button (on screen and real life) girlfriend Rachel "Summer Roberts" Bilson hosted Monday night's top soiree: the grand opening of Milk boutique on 3rd Street, sponsored by ELLE Magazine. She wore a beautiful gold-flecked strapless dress with amazing gold jewelry and he wore head-to-toe black, right from his hair color to his shoes. Adam milled around the party, gesticulating madly and acting very much like his character on The OC. Was dying to hear some snappy Seth Cohen one-liners, but was much too shy to stand by and listen.

The servers were dressed in all-white milkman uniforms, carrying trays of the most scrumptious hors d'oeuvres ever. Mini potato skin cups with a dollop of sour cream topped with caviar, gigantic shrimp, sushi, and pastry filo shells filled with delicious ingredients. Tables were laden with Godiva chocolate (can hardly believe my own willpower -- I avoided them completely) and milk bottle-shaped cookies. Mini brownies and chocolate chip cookies were served with shot glasses of milk, either plain or chocolate. Of course, all the skinny stylistas there barely touched anything, but gladly freeloaded on the Bombay Sapphire beverages at the bar. And with DJ AM on the turntables, it was one rockin' soiree.

Celeb sightings: Rachel Bilson, Adam Brody, DJ AM, model Caroline D'Amore (who is practically the super-thin version of Danica McKellar, aka. Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years), and Quincy Jones. Oh, and of course, all of L.A.'s pretty young things -- female and male.

If you look reeeeallly closely at the top left corner of the photo below, you can see my friend Leslie in her vintage grey fur jacket as well as part of Haute Hippie's head and arm checking out a vintage-inspired one piece bathsuit dangling on the rack. Not exactly a primo photo-op for me, but it's a start.

I'm Lovin' it: ELLE Magazine's gift bag for the event. Swanky shampoo and conditioner set, a Smashbox neutral eyeshadow duo, a funky tee (not a cheesy ELLE one either), a facial gift certificate, a Milk gift certificate, and the latest issue od ELLE with Scarlett Johansson gracing the cover (not loving the hair do though!). Best magazine event gift swag ever.

I'm Over it: Um, yeah. Got nothing today.

Track Classic of the Day: "When I Come Around" by Green Day. Reminds me of my friend Tynan from back in the day, who was considered the weirdest, most alternative kid during junior high. He loved Green Day then because no one knew about them. A decade later with millions of albums sold and we still have Billie Joe Armstrong in black eyeliner -- only now it's Christian Dior, not Covergirl.
