Isla attends Star City casino (re-)launch in Sydney

Sounds like Isla attended a party last night in Sydney, although unfortunately I am yet to find any photos! She’s still in the city filming The Great Gatsby, and her family are with her.

HOW many times can you launch the same venue? As many times as you like if you are a casino and you’ve spent nearly a billion dollars on a facelift.

Last night 800 ”VIPs” descended on the casino formerly known as Star City for what was billed as the official launch party, just a few weeks after the last launch party, which attracted an equally stellar crowd when the joint was renamed the Star.

PS couldn’t help but feel the Star had already blown its dough on the previous party, with last night’s much grander soiree barely raising a blip on the social radar.

Unperturbed, an impressive roll-up of names – including Tobey Maguire, Adrian Grenier, inset, Mel B, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher – braved the rain to see what all the fuss was about.

Trotting down the red carpet was a veritable Noah’s Ark of celebrities, with Jennifer Hawkins and fiance Jake Wall, Kate Ritchie and Stuart Webb, Wendell Sailor and wife Tara, Ricki-Lee Coulter and Richard Harrison, Damien Leith, Luke Jacobz, and Glenn and Sarah McGrath.

But it was the big guns we had come to see, namely the headline act and music legend Stevie Wonder, who was joined by other Hollywood heavy-hitters including Russell Crowe, pictured with wife Danielle Spencer, and, once again, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Inside the party stars had their own special enclosures, while models adorned the cavernous marble lobby dressed as sexy lamps.

The ”exclusive party” was held in the lobby of new hotel the Darling. Guests nibbled on fare from the the new Japanese restaurant Sokyo, located in the Darling’s lobby.
