The Comeback HBO Premiere @ The El Capitan

This past summer I had the incredible opportunity to play a (very) small role in HBO's relaunch of the series The Comeback starring (my idol) Lisa Kudrow. Tiny part or not, I was so ecstatic to be apart of something that will surely go down in TV history. The Comeback is brilliant, funny, painful and perfect. It's not for everyone, but those who like it are going to love it.

On Wednesday, HBO hosted the premiere of the show at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood. It was so great to see the first two episodes and reunite with some of the people I met while working on the show. Free People sent over the perfect party dress for the event and I felt like a princess the whole night. The dress is cut in a trapeze shape, and because of the beading it just flowed and moved with me everywhere I went. It truly felt like a piece of art to wear. At first, I didn't know how I would style it and then a couple accessories came together (like my grandmother's gold ring and this amazing vintage brass clutch) and I realized I had to aim for a 1920s flapper theme-- which actually was very appropriate because I basically only associate "Hollywood Glamour" with silent film stars like Clara Bow and Gloria Swanson. All heavy beading, looped around pearls and gold. I promise I'll get better photos of the dress just so you can see how magnificent it is. Thank you Free People!
After the show, we were ushered to the Roosevelt Hotel for an after-party where the stars and guests mingled and ate some delicious hors d'oeuvres. I personally ate bread and lemon meringue pie the whole night. Oh, and also drank a lot of tea. In the future, I've resolved to always order tea at parties like this. It shows you're a class act.
The night was finished off with some screen printed Comeback-related totes. I actually detest the idea of totes in general (don't they just seem so sloppy?), but I really couldn't resist one with Lisa Kudrow's face on it. I mean, come on, could you?

Anyways! The show premiers tonight (Sunday) on HBO at 10 PM.You can also watch the Season 1 on HBOGo now. Be there or be square. Or, you know, just miss out.
