Whoaaaa there, Tuesday night! It had been a quiet weekend, but New York came back with a vengeance last night, with a staggering number of star-studded events and parties all across the city. Here's what happened last night!-
Where: Screening at Tribeca Grand, Party at SoHo Grand
Who Was There: Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, Juliette Lewis, Courtney Love, Abigail Breslin, Josh Groban, Fern Mallis, Calvin Klein, Caroline Rhea, Paul Haggis, Rachel Roy, Roasanna Scotto, Andrew Saffir, Bonnie Morrison, Carla Gugino, Jane Fonda, Michael Musto, Nicole Miller, John Mayer, Tony Bennett
Other Details: Juliette Lewis seems to have recovered just fine from last week's hit and run, and seemed in fine spirits chatting with reporters and costars. The paparazzi were swarming outside the Tribeca Grand screening location, probably because of the completely randomly musicians who showed up to the screening in addition to the A list Hollywood types: Courtney Love isn't so unusual for an NYC red carpet anymore, but the presence of Tony Bennett, John Mayer and Josh Groban added unexpected musical gravitas to the evening's festivities...
Atelier Swarovski Launch Dinner
Where: SoHi Room, Trump Soho
Who Was There: Prabal Gurung, Becka Diamond, Adam Glassman (of Oprah fame), Mark Fast, Joseph Altuzarra
Other Details: The room was decorated with, yep, Swarovski crystals and green and white table settings. Guests got to ogle Mark Fast's jewelery collection, on display in the walls.
Casita Maria Fiesta 2010
Who Was There: Adrienne Bailon (recovering nicely post-Cheetah Girls, we see...), Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Fe Fendi, Gillian Miniter, Liliana Cavendish, Zani Guglemann, Meredith Melling Burke, Michelle Alves, Robert Verdi, Yaz Hernandez, Kamie Crawford (Miss Teen USA, pictured left)
Other Details: Something about the annual Casita Maria fiesta, which supports the center for arts and education, inspires guests to wear THE most colorful dresses. There was nary an LBD in sight last night, as socialites and philanthropists favored instead bright blues, reds, pinks, purples and patterns. The room itself was decorated festively, with bright orange and yellow table settings accented with bright pink flowers. After dinner, seemingly everyone headed to the dance floor, where they salsa and tangoed (or, just, you know, regular danced...), accompanied by a liveband.
GQ Topman Dinner
Where: The Lion
Who Was There: Pete Hunsinger, David Shepherd, Kellan Lutz, Timo Weiland, Yaya DaCosta, Matthew Settle, Damien Nunes
