Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough finally did it last night--walked a red carpet together, that is.
Our E! News anchor buddy and the Burlesque beauty walked arm-in-arm as they made their way into the Weinstein Company and Relativity Media party at Trader Vic's.
Michael Yo and I caught up with them during E! Online's (two-hour!) livestream of the party arrivals. Asked if it was, indeed, their first carpet together, Seacrest said...
"With the exception of the one we bought the other day that we put in our house," he said, quickly adding, "Did I say ours? Just kidding--it's mine."
Hough said she "felt like a woman" in her Marchesa gown. When Seacrest asked her what she felt like before, she cracked, "A little girl, which you love." D'oh!
Inside the party (presented by Marie Claire magazine), Seacrest and Hough canoodled in a corner. Ryan Gosling danced to Cee Lo's "F--k You" as he said hello to Michelle Williams and Jake Gyllenhaal.
The Love and Other Drugs Globes-nominee joked that he had prepared an acceptance speech. "I spent months and months and months on it," he told me. "I spent months before the movie was even made working on it." And yes, Jakey wants to work with Anne Hathaway again. "I hope so soon," he said.
Later, Gosling was so excited to see Colin Firth, he walked across a table to get to him. And speaking of getting on top of a table, one very intoxicated-looking woman was dancing on her table when she fell and spilled her glass of champagne all over Marc Anthony.
Sofia Vergara and boyfriend Nick Loeb talked Valentine's Day. "I want flowers and chocolates," the Modern Family beauty said.
Ryan Phillipe was quite possibly the most low-key celeb of the evening. He not only declined doing interviews on the carpet (boo!), but he also spent much of the night by himself.
Paris Hilton hit the photo booth with our very own Brett Malec and Fox News' Deidre Behar. Where was the hotel heiress' boyfriend, Cy Waits? We're told he called it an early night.
Nicole Kidman was one of the first to arrive and hightailed it to her table to nibble on some fruit while Scarlett Johansson was just a few feet away chatting with Matt Damon.
No word if Damon ran into his ex, Minnie Driver, who looked fierce in a zippered body hugging black leather minidress. Thomas Jane sucked on a fat cigar all night, telling me and Yo that he'd love for Halle Berry to guest on Hung and wouldn't mind Betty White, too.
Gosling was one of the last to leave at about 12:30 as were Kate Bosworth (no Alexander Skarsgrd in sight) and Golden Globe winner Claire Danes.
Helena Bonham Carter predicted that host Ricky Gervais would be "murdered" today for the jabs he took at celebs during his hosting duties, but also said he'll be back next year. "We're all grateful actually because it's essentially a real snooze fest," the King's Speech star said. "He keeps everyone awake."
