Stars Align in Hollywood on Election Night

It wasn't exactly Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt, but the Democratic Party's official election party in Los Angeles did attract a few celebs.

Joy Bryant, Brad Garrett, David Alan Grier and Chris Tucker were among the thousands who crowded into the Hyatt Century Plaza hotel to celebrate Barack Obama's win.

"I thought it was so good because he won so early and I had just voted three hours before," said Mischa Barton, who hit the party with some friends. "I was just blown away."

An Obama presidency means Barton is staying in the U.S. If John McCain had captured 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Barton said she "probably would have taken my residency out of this country."

So we had to ask: If invited to any inaugural balls, what will she wear?

Interestingly, it won't be an American designer. Instead, Barton cooed, "Something fabulous like Chanel."

Across town at the Sofitel hotel, John Legend reserved the VIP room at Rande Gerber's Stone Rose for him and 25 friends to watch the election.

Meanwhile in New York, Harvey Weinstein and Georgette Mosbacher hosted a party for the likes of Milk star James Franco, Jessica Alba, Rebecca Gayheart and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.
