How can I get over my social anxiety when at SO's work gatherings. OR how do I fake proper behavior?

My social anxiety is high when I am at my SO's work parties. I try to avoid them, but I have to go every now and then. One reason that I am anxious is that I am a doctoral student and as such am out of shape, have crappy clothes, bad hair and nothing "normal" to talk about except my research. Meeting new people isn't a priority for me right now. How can I get through these events?
