W Magazine Best Performances Party

James Franco, Gal Gadot and Mary J. Blige help W magazine kick off the 75th Golden Globes party circuit

 

Emilia Clarke and James Franco smiled for the phalanx of photographers surrounding them as they perched beside a sofa; Brooklynn Prince paused in the entry hall to spend a moment with Gal Gadot; and Mary J. Blige found a spot, just barely quieter, to relax with friends.

There, in a penthouse suite at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, a mass of A-listers crowded into the various rooms, some spilling onto the terrace for fresh air, while others ducked into side rooms to sample the dinner or dessert buffets.
