Drew Barrymore Covergirl 50th anniversary It was all easy, breezy, beautiful CoverGirls -- such as Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore and Queen Latifah -- in West Hollywood on Thursday night. A bevy of the brand's spokesgals and celebrity admirers turned up to celebrate the makeup line's 50th anniversary.

At Boa, the swank steak joint just below Soho House, cocktails and cookies were passed to the likes of "Glee" stars Amber Riley and Cory Monteith, a sherbet-colored Barrymore (right), Justin Bieber's lady friend Selena Gomez and "Private Practice" star Kate Walsh.

Without question, the room revolved around Portia and Ellen DeGeneres, who were all smiles and super affectionate as they worked the room. 

Just as affectionate but perhaps less sought after were a sweet Kendra Wilkinson and football-playing hubby Hank Baskett (her post-baby body is a solid 10 by now, FYI). Click the picture of them, above, to see more from the red carpet.

The shindig came on the heels of the People's Choice Awards after party at the Conga Room -- a first stop for folks such as Walsh -- where Ultimat vodka toasted nominees and winners.
