Nemo Librizzi is a once graffiti artist who now spends still spends his days with art as well as "helping other artists with their projects and [helping] companies work with artists" too. In March, Paradigm Magazine described Nemo as having an "innate academic curiosity and fearless need for adventure," making him "a true arbiter of cool." Nemo also co-curated the Deep Space exhibition with Joseph Nahmad in an effort to canonize graffiti artists within the fine art realm. You may spot Nemo and his wife, Kacey, socializing at some of the coolest NYC spots, including the summer's recent Dom Perignon, NeueHouse, and Curve Gallery events.

Daniel Radcliffe was quite the ladies' man last night at the premiere of "Horns" hosted by the Cinema Society and RADiUS TWC. He was joined on the red carpet by his two stunning co-stars Juno Temple and Heather Graham. The leading man was in the spotlight earlier this week when he had a delightfully feminist response to being called a "sex symbol" in an interview with the Associated Press. We've followed this boy through his years at Hogwarts, and it's clear that he's come a long way since the 'young boy wizard' days. We caught up with the 25-year-old actor and his fellow cast members to find out the real dirt behind the "Horns" film.
Jake Gyllenhaal got some major R&B support last night at the premiere of his latest film "Nightcrawler." Jake extended a special invite to his NYC pals Beyonce, Jay-Z, and 50 Cent, who all came out to the AMC Loews in Lincoln Center. Beyonce donned a denim on denim ensemble for the occasion, opting for a casual date night look, while husband Jay-Z sported a sleek navy blazer with a black leather trim. Fellow rapper 50 Cent (who has been spotted at quite a few premieres this year) stepped out in a similar outfit, pairing his Jay-Z style black and navy blazer with casual jean bottoms. The film's star showed off his usual suave style with an all black ensemble, having noticeably gained back the weight since his role as Louis Bloom, the sociopath/self-made reporter. Check out the other celebs we spotted on the carpet--including, yes, older sister Maggie Gyllenhaal, fashion insiders Derek Blasberg and Stefano Tonchi, and see who made it to the after party at the Stone Rose Lounge.
