They may play a bunch of butt-kicking babes in Sucker Punch, but the cast was all about feeling feminine last night at Nylon’s 12th Anniversary Party in their honor at Hollywood’s Tru nightclub.

“I’m wearing Gucci, my bracelet is Neil Lane,” Abbie Cornish, who appears on Nylon’s April cover, told FashionEtc, adding that when it comes to putting together an outfit, “I’m constantly pulling inspiration from a number of places—arts, people, the streets.”

Though Emily Browning wields a sword in Sucker Punch, she revealed that her real secret weapon is an Australian product called papaw ointment. “It’s sort of like lip balm but you can use it for rashes and everything,” she said. “I use it for lip balm and it’s really great.”

Cast mate Jamie Chung looked uniquely chic in a short black vintage dress with a neckline comprised of a white collar and black necktie. Not surprisingly, the former Real World star admires trend-setting actress/designers like Sienna Miller and Rachel Bilson. “They look so cool without even trying,” she told FashionEtc.

Co-star/Candie’s spokesmodel Vanessa Hudgens chatted on the upstairs patio with rumored new flame Josh Hutcherson. As guests including Whitney Port, Brittany Snow, and Nicky Hilton partied to tunes spun by Taryn Manning, the pair occasionally got PDA happy, with Hudgens touching Hutcherson’s knee and him putting his arm around her when (he thought) no one was looking.

While the Sucker Punch women were clearly the stars of the evening, another iconic female wasn’t far from Hilton’s mind. Asked who she looks to for style inspiration, the heiress told FashionEtc, “I’d say Elizabeth Taylor, with jewelry. She was just so glamorous.”
