The Burroughes party brings Butter’s stars—hello, Jennifer Garner (with baby bump) and Olivia Wilde—not butterfaces

The Burroughes party brings Butter’s stars—hello, Jennifer Garner (with baby bump) and Olivia Wilde—not butterfaces

It was ladies’ night at the Burroughes VitaminWater party for Butter, where the film’s stars Jennifer Garner, Ashley Greene, Olivia Wilde and Alicia Silverstone all came out before their premiere at Roy Thompson Hall. The film is about a Midwest U.S. town’s annual butter carving contest (don’t knock it—Toronto is also known to carve butter at the Royal Winter Fair), so naturally there was a butter sculptor. The carver, in what we’re sure is regulation costume for such an event, wore the shortest skirt we’ve ever seen outside of the Brass Rail, complete with a very low-cut top, which of course served as a beacon for the suits in attendance.  Get a close up of Butter’s knockout stars in a gallery after the jump.

Garner, sporting a baby bump, showed up in a glittery Valentino minidress, while Wilde, sure to be put on some best-dressed lists, wore a flowy Marchesa number. When we talked to Silverstone, she seemed—much like her best-known character, Cher Horowitz—a little bit spacey, speaking slowly with a bouncy poetic rhythm and nodding with scrunched eyebrows as if seeking approval for everything she had said. She even tried to sell us her book, The Kind Diet, before recanting: “No, I’m not saying you’re fat, it’s just about loving yourself.” Thanks, Alicia. Apart from the ladies wearing a lot of shiny outfits, we were a touch disappointed that the film’s male stars, Hugh Jackman and Ty Burrell, didn’t make an appearance, but with sightings of Gosling, Clooney and Speedman this week, we think we may have gotten all the male pulchritude we can handle.
