Party Night at the Sowden/Hodel House, 5121 Franklin Avenue, Hollywood, California
I have to wonder how many of the “Hollywood Elite” partygoers Thursday night were aware that they were standing on the killing ground (center courtyard) of Los Angeles’ most infamous torture-murder victim, Elizabeth Short, better known to the world as, “The Black Dahlia.” See the full article from the Hollywood Reporter-HERE.
Party at the Sowden/Hodel House Thursday, Oct 12, 2023
…”All around him (Daniel Roseberry, artistic director of Schiaparelli) at the event–held at the iconic Mayan-style John Sowden House in Los Feliz, designed in 1926 by Lloyd Wright–there were actresses aplenty wearing the label’s surrealist-infused looks. (emphasis mine)
…”Jennifer Lopez posed by the pool in a strapless corset dress with golden evil-eye details at the waist.”
…”waiters passed around cookies decorated to look like evil eyes symbols, one of the house’s signature design codes.”
