Hilary and Haylie Duff, spending some quality sister time at New York’s SUSHISAMBA park. Braving the snowy conditions, the sisters dined on yellowtail tiradito, palmito salad and sea bass anticucho. The pop star rounded out her meal with a private tour of the kitchen. After, Duff was escorted back to her table by the executive chef.
Daniel Radcliffe, in jeans and a dark hoodie, laughing and tapping his knee in the second row of The Gospel of Dolly, a Dolly Parton drag revue by New York performance artist Our Lady J at New York’s Zipper Factory.
Mary-Kate Olsen, trying on clear glasses with bright pink frames while chatting with pals at hot spot Bardot Hollywood. The starlet wore a floor-length black dress to the new lounge, and smoked cigarettes while catching up with her friends. Olsen also danced a bit with Kirsten Dunst. The two sat together and whispered all night long. Dunst also got chatty at the deejay booth, stopping by to say hi to friends there. Also at Bardot that night: Jonah Hill and Jared Leto, who made a quick lap around, with a brunette in tow, before checking out.
Paula Abdul, attending to some retail therapy at L.A.’s outdoor mall, The Grove. The American Idol judge picked up some high-heeled converse sneakers at Theodore. Says an onlooker: “She was smiling and dancing to the Christmas music.” Abdul left her new purchase at the store while she continued to shop, returning 30 minutes later to pick up her shoes. “Abdul and her guy pal were sarcastically joking about funny colors and things that would look great on camera,” the onlooker says. After shopping, the duo then lunched at the Italian restaurant La Piazza.
Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr, stepping outside to the valet stand at L.A. restaurant Shin Korean BBQ with a girlfriend. While waiting for their car, the two chatted and laughed. Then, Szohr hopped into the passenger seat and the two sped away.
