Nicole Richie, Vienna Giardi

Sara Jaye Weiss/

Nicole Richie made a rare party appearance over the weekend, hitting up the Carrera Sunglasses and Alternative Apparel bash at the penthouse of Chateau Marmont Saturday night.

A partygoer says the mother of two arrived with a few girlfriends around 8:30 p.m. and didn't stay long but was "smiling and in a great mood," despite the way-false reports that circulated last week claiming Joel Madden had a wandering...eye. Not true, says a source in the middle of the faux scandal.

The former party girl kept it low-key at the bash, looking fab in a white dress, black leggings and a leather jacket. Perhaps Ms. Richie was able to fly under the radar because of another headline-grabbing woman only a few feet away...

Vienna Giardi also attended the fete. The most recent Bachelor winner (or loser, depending if your Team Vienna or Team Jake) has been enduring quite the public breakup with former fiancé Jake Pavelka, and if anyone is keeping track, we're Team V after watching the ABC special last week.

The blonde was with three cute gal-pals as she enjoyed her ladies' night with her friends out on the terrace overlooking Sunset Boulevard.

V.G. was overheard talking with her friends about how she was "doing all right" and excited to be moving on. You go, girl! Good riddance to douchey Jake.

A couple far happier together at the same shindig were Eclipse star Xavier Samuel hand-in-hand with his model girlfriend, Shermine Shahriva.

Xavier was talking with partygoers about how he was happy to be done with the exhausting press tour but that it was "very worth it" thanks to the amazing fans who have helped Eclipse gross $203 million. Even if the third Twilight flick wasn't No. 1 at the box office this week, that's not too shabby.
