Did Girls Star Allison Williams Take Flight as Peter Pan?

Anyone hoping for another NBC musical hate-watch were probably disappointed by Peter Pan Live! Thursday night.

Mandy Moore, Kathleen Robertson, Dita Von Teese, Whitney Port, Jordana Brewster and Judy Greer were also among the women in attendance who hung out poolside at the early evening fˆte.

This was a busy week for Driver, who just one day earlier, hosted an Olympics-themed private dinner event in Beverly Hills with Beefeater Gin, in honor of her British roots.
