Valentino And More Behold The Great Buck Howard

-------

A magical crowd gathered at the Tribeca Grand Hotel Tuesday night for the Cinema Society’s screening of The Great Buck Howard, hosted by Brooks Brothers. The film, a story about a washed-up mentalist, played by John Malkovich, and his personal assistant, played by Colin Hanks, features Colin’s father, Tom, playing the Dad role onscreen. Tom and Colin bear a striking resemblance in looks, mannerisms, and style. “We both go for that 1960′s Secret Service kind of look,” said Colin, clad in Calvin Klein. Colin’s Broadway co-star Jane Fonda stopped by to show her support, as did Valentino, in town for the debut of his own cinematic moment, Valentino: The Last Emperor, playing next week at MoMA. “I’ve done a lot in my life. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of it,” said the designer, who mingled with his The Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily Blunt, who plays a sexy publicist in Buck Howard. The after-party at the Penthouse of the Soho Grand Hotel played host to a celebrity continuum that ran the gamut from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe to Princess Alexandra of Greece. We chatted up the movie’s muse, real-life mentalist and TV star George Kresge, Jr., a.k.a. the Amazing Kreskin, who lamented the end of all the free clothes he used to get when he had his own show. When we pointed Fred Schneider of the B-52s in Kresge’s general direction, he exclaimed, “The Amazing Kreskin? Now that’s the kind of celebrity I want to meet!”
