The Sundance Film Festival, as always, brought out tons of stars and Micah Jesse has your celebrity roundup of who was where and what they took home in their swag bags! Here we go…
The Bertolli Meal Soup Chalet hosted by Gen Art at the Sky Lodge brought out do-gooder stars like Anthony Mackie, Jesse Williams, Justin Long, Isla Fisher, Laura Prepon, Andy MacDowell, Ben Lyons and many more. Many of the celeb guests who came through were excited to support Bertolli’s mission (in conjunction with Feeding America) to donate 400,000 meals to the hungry by signing a ladle for the “Ladles of Love” Wall. Stars also picked up swag from SOLSTICE Sunglass Boutique, Tic-Tac Mints, and Lumene skin care products before heading back out to bear the cold. (#sp)
A cozy spot to hang out, relax, and check out some seriously amazing bands was the Bing Bar, which hosted concerts by mega artists including Wiz Khalifa, Cobra Starship, and Jason Mraz. The Bing Bar was also host to quite a few screening after parties, even getting festival founder Robert Redford to stop by.
The Talent Resources & Kari Feinstein gifting suites were host to a bevvy of stars including Tinsley Mortimer, AnnaLynne McCord, and Mario Lopez. Celeb guests such as these received clothing, gifts and goodies from Vice Merchants, Hint Water, Sean Jean, DL1961 Premium Denim, while jamming to music by DJ’s Mick Boogie and Silver Medallion.
Park City Live was host to concerts all weekend long from huge names including LMFAO’s Red Foo & The Party Rock Crew, Deadmau5, Afrojack, Ludacris, Big Sean, and OneRepublic. In between “party rocking,” the LMFAO crew was seen snacking on a variety pack of Baked By Melissa cupcakes.
Learning to ski with celebs? Sign us up! That’s what was going on at the Oakley Learn to Ride Powered by AT&T and the League of Super Fast Things event below the Hyde Lounge pop-up on Main Street. This exciting retreat brought out stars like Ryan Kwanten, Anne Heche, Sal Masekela and Mario Lopez with his beautiful wife Courtney Mazza. In between learning to ski, celebs sipped on Muscle Milk Cookies and Cream to recharge.
Nearly 80 Sundance celebs including William H. Macy, Christina Hendricks, and Ice-T stopped by the McCafé Lounge at The Village at the Lift this past weekend and participating in McCafe Project Warm Up: Lend a Hand to Warm a Heart to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). McDonald’s made an on-the-spot donation for each celebrity that stopped by to “lend a hand to warm a heart” and all of the quilt patches will now be turned into a beautiful quilt and auctioned off during the 2012 McDonald’s All American Games in March to benefit RMHC.
Stars like Elizabeth Olsen, SNL’s Will Forte and AnnaLynne McCord flocked to the Element Electronics Apres Ski Retreat to sip on specialty cocktails from The Mulberry Project, get their hair done up by Nine Zero One Salon (with products from Unite), and take home swag from IceLink Watches.

Macy, Jon Heder, Danny Glover, Ariel Winter, and many more, who came by to pick up swag and hang out.
Christina Hendricks and husband Geoffrey Arend, Ty Burrell, Spike Lee, Eric Mabius, Jon Heder among others stopped by the Nintendo 3DS Experience at Sundance to check out the brand’s “latest and greatest.” MJ stopped by too and was blown away by the 3D-sunglasses-less visuals on the new Nintendo 3DS! (The lounge even featured specialty cocktails using Emergen-C!)
Distinguished actors Bruce Willis, Chris Kattan and an all-grown-up Joshua Jackson made appearances at Goodnight Gansevoort at The ONE Group House, where guests snacked on small bites from Baked By Melissa and STK.

How do you get stars like Glee’s Lea Michele, Terrence Howard, Donnie Wahlberg, Nick Lachey (and wife Vanessa Minnillo) and more to the middle of Connecticut for a weekend?
Well, if you’re Mohegan Sun and you’re celebrating your 15th Anniversary, you invite the “creme de la creme” of celebs, media and even celeb chefs Bobby Flay and Todd English to experience a one-of-a-kid set by Jennifer “J. Lo” Lopez – performing in a skin tight head-to-toe Swarovski crystallized onesie!
The “American Idol” judge took the stage by storm performing many (or most) of her greatest hits with high energy. At one point though, J.Lo got a little choked up before paying homage to her lost loves (Diddy, Ben Affleck and finally and most recently Marc Anthony).
“You want to talk about love? I can talk about love. Oh, the stories!” she said during a heartfelt speech to the audience before breaking out with her hit “If You Had My Love.” Afterwards she said, “That’s the first song I wrote about love. And this is the last song I wrote about love. A lot has happened since then!”
Later in the night, stars like Kelly Bensimon. Jaime Pressly, Tinsley Mortimer (and boyfriend Brian Mazza) and Jesse Metcalfe partied the night away at the official after party deejayed by DJ Kiss.
Check out HOT SHOTS from the star-studded weekend — after the jump!
Y’all! How fun (and totally nuts) is this shot?!!
MJ posed for a “HOT SHOT!” with reality TV faves Nicole Snooki Polizzi (MTV’s “Jersey Shore”) and Kelly Bensimon (Bravo’s “Real Housewives of NYC”) at the grand opening of TEQA restaurant in New York City on Thursday night (Feb 24).
Snooki had just come from a taping of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” where she and the talk show host drank pickle juice, she told MJ.
Also in the house at the restaurant opening was NFL’er Warren Sapp, socialite Tinsley Mortimer and boyfriend Brian Mazza, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Jessica White and her “Basketball Wives” pal Jennifer Williams.
Who didn’t get snapped and was barely noticed? Australian singer/songwriter Sia who kept a very low profile throughout the evening.
Snooki and her crew left the restaurant opening to eat at another restaurant, Primeko, before hitting up fist-pumping at 1OAK nightclub.
Socialite Tinsley Mortimer, actress Louise Roe, Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth, and “The View’s” Elisabeth Hasselbeck got snapped for a “HOT SHOT!” sitting front row at the Milly by Michelle Smith runway show at New York Fashion Week.
All the leading ladies were rocking the designer, Milly, and Tinsley was rocking her favorite ring from RichRocks that she was spotted rocking many times throughout the week.
You all look gee-orgeous!
Micah Jesse caught up with the star of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Kyle Richards, at the Duracell Mobile Smart Power Lab in NYC’s Madison Square Park on Friday morning (Dec 17).
Duracell has gotten celebs and socials and other New Yorkers to literally help power and illuminate the 2011 numerals on New Years Eve in Times Square by hopping aboard a Power Rover and pedaling.
Other celebrities who have “pedaled to power” this year include Top Chef All Stars’ Carla Hall, comedian Aasif Mandvi, socialite Tinsley Mortimer, designer Richie Rich, stylist Robert Verdi and many more!
…even MJ took a turn! MJ pedaled for positivity!
Designer Richie Rich, socialite Tinsley Mortimer, stylist Robert Verdi, and media personality Carson Kressley pose for a “HOT SHOT!” with Santa to help celebrate the holiday season on Thursday (Dec 9) in NYC’s Meatpacking District.
The starlets donated their time and energy at the Duracell Smart Power Lab, where human-generated power is collected to help light up the 2011 numerals in Times Square on New Year’s Eve!
Love this shot! Full of life and holiday cheer! Now, someone get MJ a beer!
The rain drops didn’t stop New York City socialite Tinsley Mortimer from coming out to support the Music Unites Women Empowerment Initiative last week at The Standard Hotel’s Le Bain. That’s what you call a “real socialite” – supporting good causes… rain or shine!
Tins was accompanied by her nightlife impressario boyfriend, Brian Mazza.
The Music Unites Women Empowerment Initiative aims to empower and inspire women from all walks of life through musical showcases and workshops.
