Though best known as Gossip Girl’s Brooklyn boy, Penn Badgley spent last Saturday evening proving that he’s truly a Lower East Side guy while catching up with friends in the VIP section of Carrera Sunglasses Escape at the Mondrian SoHo. No longer dating starlet Blake Lively, Penn told friends that he is finally moving into the Lower East Side bachelor pad of his dreams where he plans to spend day and night chilling to music uninterrupted on his favorite SOUL by Ludacris headphones. Truly a jack of all trades, the actor boasted that he can play any instrument but the drums, plans to produce a record after he returns from a trip to Mexico and even picked up some Venroy Australia board shorts to complement his avid surfing skills. Penn chatted with co-star Kaylee DeFer as he sipped on his favorite cocktail of UV Vodka on the rocks with a squeeze of lime and took a quick break to hydrate with MiO Berry Pomegranate.
After nearly 360 straight days of filming, Glee sweetheart Dianna Agron took advantage of the chance to kick back and relax at Carrera Sunglasses Escape at the Mondrian SoHo. After catching up on long overdue sleep, the TV songstress ventured out to celebrate the birthday of figure skater Johnny Weir in New York with the intriguing trio of Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Roberts and Susan Sarandon. The party didn’t wrap up until nearly 7am, but the starlet looked picture perfect in her floral skirt, casual tee and navy Carrera frames.
From her boyfriend to her fans, Glee star Dianna Agron was the picture of selflessness at Carrera Sunglasses Escape at the Mondrian SoHo. In the midst of promoting his new movie Captain America: The First Avenger, Dianna’s boyfriend Sebastian Stan was stuck working as the starlet enjoyed this weekend’s exclusive rooftop party. Luckily, his doting girlfriend made sure to collect an assortment of surprises to brighten his day including classic Carrera sunglasses, Venroy Australia board shorts and SOUL by Ludacris headphones. Generosity is a familiar trait for Dianna who had a habit of giving away tickets to fans on the street during her Glee Tour.
Though now famous for her roles on TV and the silver screen, Glee’s Dianna Agron surprised friends at this weekend’s Carrera Sunglasses Escape when she admitted that neither television nor films were a part of her life growing up in San Francisco. As a child, Dianna and her brother were so occupied with extracurricular dance classes and sports teams that their couch time was very limited. When they had the chance to watch TV, they were restricted to classic films with stars such as Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren. Despite growing up with the classics, Dianna is now well-versed with more modern entertainment picking out matching pairs of SOUL by Ludacris for her upcoming trip to LA with boyfriend Sebastian Stan, star of this summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Though he walked into Carrera Sunglasses Escape raving about a grumbling stomach, designer Christian Siriano was quickly distracted by a fashion show of the fancy frames with his boyfriend asking “Babe, what do you think?” as he tried on nearly twenty options. After selecting matching aviator styles, the dapper duo took a self portrait on Christian’s phone before gushing over how “hot” they looked. Making a quick stop at the bar to concoct UV Vodka Blue Raspberry cocktails with a splash of sprite, they beelined for the VIP section where they danced and continued raving about their new frames. Officially “Team Britney,” Christian jumped out of his seat as the DJ started to play “Hold It Against Me” and told everyone in the VIP section how excited he was to see Britney in concert next month.
