Sweet summer dresses were out in full force at Monday’s hotly anticipated SMUT Soiree. The fifth anniversary of the gossip party attracted the city’s stylish citizenry to the east end, where the Audi dealership was transformed into an outdoor living room, complete with white leather couches and Absolut cocktails.

Après stage, Glee‘s Cory Monteith told partygoers via a surprise video that he would match their donations to Covenant House, which was also the recipient of a $10,000 donation courtesy of The Society, Laineygossip and Absolut.
