Last night's Whitney Art party was certainly the place to be for a Wednesday in New York. With everyone from Lake Bell to Camilla Belle (big range there on surnames) checking out the works before the annual auction, there was plenty of prettiness to look at.
Not the least of which was Bradley Cooper. He's making the rounds at the season's biggest galas and award shows, and we're not complaining. If it takes a movie like 'The Hangover' to get him in the public eye more often, then we say bring on the frat-boy humour.
When we do post-event wrap-ups, it's easy to focus on the ladies. They have the gowns, the chiffon, the elaborate hair and makeup routines ... but this time, we're looking at the guys. Check out some of the industry's leading designers (from Marc Jacobs to Ralph Lauren to Zac Posen), and let us know what you think.
And just for good measure, we'll give you a look at their leading ladies and gents.
It's not every event that can gather a range of A-listers as wide as the annual White House Correspondents' dinner, but trust Barack Obama to get a solid guest list. Last night's event drew everyone from Donatella Versace to Natalie Portman to Sting - and those in attendance got to hear the ba-da-bing side of the president.
For a second, I almost forgot Evan Rachel Wood's taste in men. The ex-fiancee of Marilyn Manson and former tonsil-hockey buddy of Mickey Rourke stunned the red carpet last night with a look so ladylike she practically can't be from this century. Woody Allen's film 'Whatever Works' opened the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday, drawing the likes of Mary-Kate Olsen, Uma Thurman and Bradley Cooper to the paparazzi line.
As for Woody Allen's crowd control, let's assume American Apparel's Dov Charney was not invited.
