Prince William and Kate Middleton took over Southern California yesterday.
After a day at the Santa Barbara polo fields, the newlyweds brought glamour, grace, star power and formal wear to the BAFTA Brits to Watch event.
Walking down the red carpet, Kate wore a lilac Alexander McQueen gown and earrings borrowed from the Queen, and William a classic black tux ...
"In terms of pure star quality, William and Kate are the biggest stars in the world," said Piers Morgan, among the guests at the hottest ticket in Hollywood.
How impressed were the celebs? In a town where your worth is gauged by how late you get to show up, the biggest names in showbiz were there early.
The best seats – at the table with the royal couple – went to Nicole Kidman, Barbra Streisand and James Brolin, along with executives and diplomats.
Also attending were Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, Dana Delany, Elizabeth Moss, Marie Louise Parker, Kristin Chenoweth, Jason Bateman, Elizabeth Banks, Jack Black, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Jonah Hill and Chris Evans.
