The New York premiere of Nine last night was by far the most celebrity attended premiere of the season, as can be expected from a movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Fergie, Kate Hudson, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Judi Dench.-
Guests at the Ziegfeld premiere included Madonna, her daughter Lourdes, Jessica Seinfeld, Ashley Olsen, Mary-Kate Olsen, Donald Trump and Melania, Goldie Hawn, Rudy and Judith Giuliani, Julian Schnabel, Neil Simon, Pedro Almodovar, Rachel Roy, Tommy Tune, Tobey Maguire, Tony Bennett, and Victor Garber. And Bob Balaban, naturally. Whew! The Rob Marshall directed musical follows film director Guido Contini and his relationships with his wife, mistress, muse, agent, and mother.
As befitting for a film which deals with maternal influence, mothers and daughters were quite the theme last night. Goldie Hawn was there to support daughter Kate (did she fly in as a last minute date replacement for A-Rod?), and Madonna took her daughter Lourdes. Fergie's mom was also on the red carpet, possibly to keep an eye on a (penitent looking? or am I reading too much into it?) Josh Duhamel, who at one point gave wife Fergie a kiss on the forehead. After the premiere, a very well-attended after party was held at M2.
