Paris Hilton, causing chaos as female fans furiously snapped pictures of the heiress while she applied makeup in the ladies’ room at Indochine in New York. There to celebrate the Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Collective Hardware photography exhibition, Hilton was joined by guests like a baseball cap-sporting Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes at the super-packed soiree. The makeshift dancefloor was so crowded, in fact, revelers tipped over the 10 ft.-tall plants!

Kanye West, showing off the fruits of his recent shopping trip at New York’s vintage haven What Comes Around Goes Around at the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway show. The rapper – and fashion fan – snagged a vintage military jacket while browsing at the store’s new appointment-only Vault, located just below the SoHo boutique.

Naomi Watts, grabbing sushi at Katsuya Brentwood during a date night with Liev Schreiber. The happy parents weren’t tucked away at all, sitting out in the open of the dining room, an onlooker says, and seemed really into their conversation.

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, loading up on bath and beauty products at Lush Cosmetics on New York’s Upper West Side. “They were in the store for over an hour,” a source says. “They were really sweet.” Among their purchases: Manage Too Massage Bars and Buffy Body Butter.

Michelle Trachtenberg, showing off photos of her dog on her BlackBerry over a late lunch with Amanda Bynes and other friends at Fred’s at Barneys New York in the Big Apple. They each ate a bowl of chicken noodle soup, split tuna tartare, then Tractenberg had a sandwich and Bynes had a salad.

• New Dancing with the Stars contestant Lil’ Kim, chatting with Khloe Kardashian and other friends during a party at West Village hot spot Casa La Femme. According to a source, Lil’ Kim looked amazing. “She has definitely lost weight,” the source says. “She was actually really happy [and] sat at a private table with some friends” as belly dancers gyrated around the fire pit.
