Heidi, Her Louboutin Lace Heels, A Bel Air Mansion and much more... Heidi Klum and Nick Verreos, LA Confidential Pre-Emmys Party (photo courtesy of Evans Vestal Ward/BEI Images) Stopped Traffic: Last Thursday I was excited to attend Heidi Klum's LA Confidential Emmys Party at a fabulous estate in the "backyard" of the UCLA campus. My girl Heidi was on the cover of the new "Fashion Issue" of Los Angeles Confidential Magazine, looking serious and bundled up in a woolly grey-beige coat. As David and I got one block away from the house, a private mansion in Bel Air just off of Sunset Boulevard, we waited in stopped traffic trying to enter the driveway---for 45 minutes--no kidding! We quickly realized this was "going to be crazyyyyy!!!!".Nick As A Car Valet Guy: Finally, after making our way into the front of the house and leaving our car, we got out and a (already drunk) female guest of the party, headed right towards me and tried to give me her valet ticket! I guess she mistook my Top Shop jacket, Hermes silk pocket scarf and skinny jeans as the new Valet Uniform for the the LA Confidential Party. Who knows? Well, you know kiddies that I threw that woman a look that she probably has never been thrown before--it was quite an amusing start to this party, needless to say!Couture Valet Boys: David Paul and Nick Verreos of NIKOLAKI, LA Confidential Pre-Emmys Party (photo courtesy of Evans Vestal Ward/BEI Images) The Bel Air Scene: Once inside the party, we quickly surveyed the atmosphere and the gorgeous Bel Air surroundings. The backyard was packed and the line to the bar was very long. But somehow, David and I managed. We passed our time by doing "mental red carpet" commentary on the guests outfits! Giving Strapless: Debra Messing at the LA Confidential Pre-Emmys Party I spotted designer Christian Audigier as well as actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and "professional heir", Jason Davis (with a cane). Max Axria, BCBG and Herve Leger Designer (and recent judge of Project Runway) was also there. A little bird told us we had missed Debra Messing (we must have been waiting in that Sunset Blvd. traffic) who had arrived, gotten out of her car, walked the red carpet, and then went right back into her car. Fierce! Finally, I saw the Woman of The Hour, Miss Heidi Klum, holding court at a table, sitting down (resting her pregnant belly I assume!) and flanked by MAJOR bodyguards. Pregnant Heels: Heidi Klum's lace and animal print Christian Louboutin HIGH heels I made my way over to say "Hellooooooo" (think of her "Heidi Klum Project Runway Greeting"), and somehow was not beaten up by the hunky bodyguards. She looked FLAWLESS in a black jersey ankle-length off-the-shoulder tank dress. As I looked down, to see what shoes she had on, I spotted the HIGHEST of Louboutin lace platform heels, the same ones Jennifer Lopez wore at the VMA's. I asked, "How do you stand on those Heidi?". Without missing a beat, she answered "Why do you think I'm sitting down Nick!!" Attagurl! I also got the "Inside Scoop" on what she was going to wear on Sunday to the Emmy Awards--but I ain't telling a soul! That's a secret that I will hold--until Monday night!
