It's rare that LAist is star struck. We live in LA, damnit, where a starlet is just as likely to fight you for diet pills in the grocery store as she is to flash you on the red carpet. Last night, however, we were nearly blinded by the high wattage power of NBC 4's own Kelly Mack.

At a very low key holiday party at Yi Cuisine for a bunch of reality tv big wigs, Kelly Mack arrived in what appeared to be a leopard print fur (faux?) jacket and her signature short, cropped 'do. When she finally removed her coat she bedazzled the dark, trendy Asian Fusion restaurant with her silver, sparkly, shimmering top.

As she laughed and joked and smiled with the crowd, arm and arm with her husband (a reality tv head honcho himself), we found ourselves unable to look away. This was our early morning news anchor cutting up and letting her hair down. Well, if it was longer it would've been down.

When she drove away from Yi in her black Jag, we were left to ponder how we would receive her news in the future. Would her announcing of important car chases remind us of her boisterous laugh? Would a tease of "important health news to come" bring images of her cleavage to our thoughts?

Thankfully, we didn't get the answers to these questions this morning as the hot jack cider and chocolate martinis left us with a wicked holiday hangover that had us sleeping through "Today in LA" at 6 AM.
