Drew Barrymore was among the stars who turned out last night for the launch of Marni for H&M in LA. She was joined at Lloyd Wright’s Sowden House by Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni and friends like Jessica Chastain, Freida Pinto, and Rashida Jones. Director Sofia Coppola was on hand as well. Sofia's short film for the Marni and H&M collaboration was released earlier this month. The piece features Imogen Poots, an actress also in the new Marni for H&M ads, and the music of Bryan Ferry, who took the stage last night too. The bash was held well in advance of the collection's arrival in stores on March 8. Drew's currently hanging out in LA after making a cross crounty trip to chat up her movie Big Miracle, which hit theaters on Feb. 3.
