Throughout the evening, Osbourne laughed and chatted with her group of friends. Osbourne and one girlfriend played endlessly with their cell phones and seemed fascinated at whatever popped up on their screens.

Osbourne later Tweeted about her night out with Von Teese and crew.

Dita Von Teese's cat Aleister has style – and he doesn't leave home without it.

"He has a Louis Vuitton carrier, which I had painted with my monogram," the burlesque star tells TheJetSetPets.com. "He's really smart and can unzip it. I have to watch him carefully. One time he popped out on the plane."

The Devon Rex, who is about 7 years old, often travels with his equally stylish owner, and has even been known to quietly lie on her lap during flights.

"He's always really been good with [traveling,]" she says. "[But] as soon as I open up his case, he wants to get out and explore."
