Bryn Mawr native actress Kat Dennings was one of the most talked about attendees at Sunday night's Emmy Awards.

Dennings told red carpet interviewers she was worried about a wardrobe malfunction, but sadly she did not pop out of her Jessica Rabbit dress.

Her CBS show, "Two Broke Girls," premieres its second season at 9 p.m. Monday.

Overbrook native superstar Will Smith turned up Friday night at Industry XIX (1904 Chestnut) wearing a Pirates hat. We're surprised the Sixers part-owner wasn't repping his team, or the Phillies.

(The club also hosts DeSean Jackson's Eagles afterparty on Sept. 30)

Kevin Spacey was spotted Friday night having drinks at Smith & Wollensky at the Rittenhouse, Dandelion (18th & Sansom) and Chris' Jazz Cafe (1421 Sansom). No word yet on why the actor, who won an Academy Award for "American Beauty," is in town, but we're working to find out.

Sixers co-owner Marc Leder, at whose Florida home Mitt Romney remarked that 47 percent of the nation "believe that they are victims," is known to throw wild parties in the Hamptons, reports the New York Post.

The paper says "guests cavorted in a pool and performed sex acts, while scantily clad Russian women danced on platforms," at a rented home in Bridgehampton, N.Y., during a summer bash last year.

The Post said Leder went on something of a tear after his wife of 22 years, Lisa, cheated on him with her tennis instructor in 2009.

Chef Georges Perrier has agreed to cook dinner using his recipes Nov. 14 at Heirloom (8705 Germantown) in Chestnut Hill.

Perrier got to talking with Heirloom chef Al Paris after dining there recently with his daughter Genevieve and her fiancé. The former Le Bec-Fin owner went for the Hudson Valley foie gras, watermelon gazpacho, pork tenderloin with spoonbread and gingersnap gravy, and some good wine.

Perrier and Paris haven't yet worked out the menu for Perrier's first public cooking since he sold Le Bec-Fin last spring.

Slash and a pal stopped for dinner at Alma de Cuba.

Rock legend Slash and a pal stopped for dinner at Alma de Cuba (1623 Walnut) Thursday night, a day before the Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist brought his solo band to Atlantic City's House of Blues. Slash, without his signature top hat, and party went for Alma's original lime caipirinhas and white sangria.

* Before the Phillies left for Houston, Cliff Lee brought fellow pitcher Jonathan Papelbon to Harrah's in Chester to play poker. Lee's a regular at Harrah's poker room, usually playing late at night.

* Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Michael Oher, subject of the film "The Blind Side," and about a dozen teammates went for drinks and a big meal at Chickie's & Pete's (15th & Packer) early Saturday evening, before returning to the Westin Hotel for a team meeting and curfew for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
