Gwyneth, Madonna, Reese, Anne & SJP: The Great American Songbook Party Pals

Posted Tuesday February 11, 2014 12:00 PM GMT

Making the most of a mundane Monday evening, a host of Hollywood hotties converged on The Great American Songbook celebration to honor Bryan Lourd last night (February 10).

Looking lovely as usual, Gwyneth Paltrow mingled with the likes of Madonna, Allison Williams and Alan Cumming at Alice Tully Hall.

Meanwhile, “Walk the Line” starlet Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Sarah Jessica Parker all came out for the fancy fete and had a marvelous time.

And the man of the hour, CAA superstar agent Bryan Lourd, seemed a bit overwhelmed by all the pomp and circumstance. He told The Hollywood Reporter, "I've resisted this for a long time. But I couldn't turn them down; it's a great institution and I couldn't say no. Am I embarrassed? Yes! Am I nervous about giving a speech? Yes! I will have a good time tonight - when this is over, and I can just hang out with my friends. I have no idea what we're going to see tonight -- and I'm not sure I want to know! They kept it a complete surprise from me."
