by Mara Siegler · January 21, 2011

Stars, socialites and fashionistas came out to celebrate Ashton Kutcher's new movie, Martha Stewart laid her judgmental eye on old things, Cyndi Lauper hung out with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and more. Let's take a look at what happened last night!

Other Details:"No Strings Attached" is a fuck buddy romcom that follows the formula.  It's gotten bad reviews, but was surprisingly good for the genre with Natalie Portman bringing her A game as a commitment-phobe with a high sex drive.  Ashton Kutcher is the adorable, sweet guy he always plays. He cries in this film. It's kind of funny. At the after-party, he was joined by his wife, Demi, who is gorgeous in real-life but also normal looking enough to confuse her with a publicist. [Via]
