From Los Angeles Times, January 17, 2018:

What were the Davids (Hockney and Lynch) chatting about with half the Beatles (Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr) at a barely lighted table in Hollywood? We don’t know either, but it was just one of the many memorable moments in a star-studded evening full of them thanks to British designer Stella McCartney’s decision to decamp to Los Angeles to present her latest collections in a rocking, rollicking, free-form party atmosphere.

“A semi-historical music location in L.A. is somewhere I feel very at home,” McCartney told us in between sets by soul singer Leon Bridges and avant-garde synth-pop singer Grimes. “It’s very natural for us to have parties in L.A. All my friends seem to have moved here.” (Although McCartney told us she wasn’t sure whether her father, Paul McCartney, had ever made use of the SIR Studios facilities at Wilcox Avenue and Sunset Boulevard, a post-show release noted that the instrument-rental place was celebrating its 50th anniversary.)

The fashion designer dubbed the event, which included clusters of collection-clad models flanking the performance stage and scattered throughout SIR Studios, a “Stella-bration,” but it was so full of musical talent — on- and off-stage — that one of our fellow fashion journalists more accurately described it as “Stella-chella.”

[…] In addition to sets by Bridges and Grimes, the presentation-turned-party included the musical stylings of BØRNS, St. Vincent and Beck, who performed a handful of songs (several backed by a 10-member choir) before closing out the night with an enthusiastic version of “Where It’s At.”

With all due respect to the behatted Beck, though, the performance that had everyone on their feet and waving their cellphones in the air came from a Beatles cover band called Dr. Pepper and the Jaded Hearts Club Band (whose members include Muse’s Matt Bellamy and Dom Howard), which performed a blistering set that started with “I Saw Her Standing There” and ended with “Helter Skelter,” both of which had the elder McCartney up onstage and singing along.

Spotted taking in that spectacle in front of the stage was another celebrity parent-child pair — Goldie Hawn and daughter Kate Hudson — who joined a cadre of well-knowns at the event including (but far from limited to) Michael Keaton, Paris Jackson, Selma Blair, Amy Poehler, Katy Perry, U2’s the Edge (who accessorized his signature knit cap with a gray suit), Emma Roberts, Ringo Starr, Christina Aguilera, Keirnan Shipka and James Corden.
