Cinema Society's Social Network After Party
Where: Gansevoort Park
Who Was There: Adrien Brody, Tinsley Mortimer, Brett Ratner, Tyler Winklevoss, Cameron Winklevoss, Gabourey Sidibe, Genevieve Jones, Jesse Eisenberg, Jack McBrayer, Katrina Bowden, Lance Bass, Michelle Rodriguez, Rachelle Hruska, Carson Griffith, Liam McMullan, Aesha Waks, Janel Maloney, Aaron Sorkin, Nanette Lepore, Petra Nemcova, Olivia Palermo, Rachel Roy, Katie Lee, Justin Timberlake

Guests kept confusing Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss for their movie counterpart (Armie Hammer), so props to the casting director for that one. Also, West Wing fans will be happy to know that Aaron Sorkin and Janel Maloney were reunited at the after party.

Who Was There: Padma Lakshmi, Emily Mortimer, Alan Cumming, Julianne Moore

Champagne and vodka cranberries (random choice...) were served as guests wound their way through the at times inspiring, at times terrifying art. Julianne Moore and Padma Lakshmi were both eager to pose in front of Damien Hirst's piece constructed entirely with multicolored butterflies...a sounder choice than his fleas on resin piece in the other room....
