Last night at the Paris Theatre, Woody Allen premiered his latest flick, Magic in the Moonlight, a comedic caper set in the south of France circa the 1920s. The plot revolves around a single question: Is Emma Stone's character, Sophie, a clairvoyant medium or a phony? "Woody called me for the part," Stone told Style.com. "And filming was pretty much exactly how I thought it would be." Clairvoyant, indeed. Rumor has it Stone is already slated to star in Allen's next film.
After the screening, guests moseyed a few blocks east for an after-party at Harlow, where sponsor Dolce & Gabbana had lined the walls with fresh roses. ("It definitely smells like the south of France in here," one guest remarked.) The likes of Christina Hendricks, Dane DeHaan, and Audrey Tautou turned out, and the film's Provençal setting skewed the evening's conversation toward how badly everyone wanted a French holiday. Mia Moretti talked about her recent trip to Paris for Couture: "It's less of a scene than the ready-to-wear shows. I stayed in a friend's apartment in the Sixth, and it actually felt like more of a vacation than running around." Côte d'Azur or the Upper East Side, Stone didn't seem to care much where she was—she spent the whole night cozied up in a booth with boyfriend Andrew Garfield.
Meanwhile, ballet star and the Bolshoi's only American dancer, David Hallberg, had a debut of his own when he performed Swan Lake for the first time at Lincoln Center. The handsome danseur noble was the guest of honor afterward at a dinner hosted by Russian fashion and art VIPs Nasiba Adilova and Maria Baibakova, among others at Lincoln Ristorante.
