As Corinne Foxx was revealed as the 2016 Miss Golden Globe Tuesday night, some of Hollywood’s hottest stars came together to kick off the start of Golden Globes season at InStyle and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s celeb-filled bash at Ysabel in West Hollywood, Calif.
While Jamie Foxx’s 21-year-old daughter isn’t new to attending star-studded events, the model and aspiring actress was still thrilled as she dished to us about her title. “I’m so excited,” she told us after her press conference. “This is the first time really that I’m in the industry on my own and not in my dad’s shadow.”
Jamie, who teared up when he heard news of Corinne’s honor, was on hand to support his daughter on her big night, rocking a navy suit and a big smile on his face. As for the bash, both of them kept a low profile at a secluded booth during the festivities, while stars like Vanessa Hudgens, Sarah Hyland, and Sarah Silverman mixed and mingled nearby.
Hyland, who stunned in a red Vera Wang dress and attended the event with boyfriend Dominic Sherwood, told us her favorite part of the fete was “the people” in attendance. She added, “I haven’t seen so many of my friends in such a long time… My boyfriend and I brought friends in from out of town so it’s really fun for us.”
Meanwhile, Sarah Silverman sipped Fiji water and told us she was fangirling over Patricia Clarkson, Michael Shannon, Jean Smart, and Lisa Edelstein at the event, adding, “I think [Lisa] is so cool and so nice.”
It was not only a night to make new friends, but also catch up with old ones. As Aziz Ansari and Straight Outta Compton star O’Shea Jackson Jr. took a moment to chat, Saoirse Ronan sipped a glass of wine with a friend in a booth. And Mr. Robot stars Rami Malek, Portia Doubleday, and Carly Chaikin continued to prove their tightness as a cast as they conversed with each other throughout the night.
As for the grub, How to Get Away with Murder star Aja Naomi King swooned over the “yummy raspberry cake, puff pastries,” and Vanessa Hudgens, suited up in a cut-out Bec and Bridge black dress, grabbed bites of the pastries as well. Guests were also treated to short ribs, mashed potatoes, honey-glazed carrots, and mini grilled cheese sandwiches that were quickly gobbled up as they were passed around.
