Who is Crystal Lourd?
One of Hollywood’s many insiders, Crystal Lourd, is a woman of many talents. She’s a producer on the upcoming ABC show Scandal, and has done stints on NBC’s The Office and as a writer and editor for magazines including Harper’s Bazaar. She’s also a philanthropist, donating several million dollars to charity over the years. She’s also got a name in fashion, having worked for Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren, among others. Her latest gig is with Tom Ford. She’s been dubbed the celebrity wrangler. She’s also an avid shopper, and likes a snazzy party.
She’s got a lot on her plate these days, but she took time out of her busy schedule to throw a major soiree to celebrate her 50th birthday. The soiree, which amounted to a swank-filled vacation, saw Gwyneth and Brad together in a beach-front condo, with their respective entourages in tow. As for the fête itself, well, there was the fireworks show. Of course, Gwyneth had a plethora of friends afoot, ranging from Jennifer Lopez to Paris Hilton to Kim Kardashian to her bf, Joe Jonas. On the beach front, Gwyneth and her pals were hardly in a rush, and stayed out all night. Despite the hors d’oeuvres, it was a good time for everyone involved. After a couple of sultry hours, they made their way to the Casa China Blanca for a late-night cocktail and more. With a champagne bottle in tow, they partied the night away. It may have been a small group, but the sight of all that glitters was certainly a sight to behold.
