Who made a splash last night walking the red carpet at The Cinema Society's screening of Albert Nobbs? Miley's dad, y'all! The paps went achy breaky for Billy Ray Cyrus, and why shouldn't they? We adore everything about an evening that puts Billy, Patti Smith and Sinead O'Connor under the same roof.

How divine is this shot? Glenn Close pays her respects to theeee Lauren Bacall (she turned 87 in September!) last night at MoMA for the Cinema Society's screening of Albert Nobbs. Please note the two young ladies in the background who are taking this in with "I'm shocked" and "I'm going to update my Facebook status" faces, respectively.

Can we talk about the Elizabeth Taylor auction for a moment? Wowza! Last night, her private jewelry collection went for a whopping $115 million at Christie's New York. A Cartier pearl and diamond necklace (pictured) that was given to Taylor by hubbie Richard Burton was the top seller of the night going for $11.8 million. It was expected to go for somewhere between $2 million and $3 million. The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond, another gift from Burton, went for $8.8 million. If you feel left out and want a piece of ET you have another chance through Friday when her furniture, art, costumes and memorabilia, including copies of National Velvet and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, are auctioned off at Christie's and online. A portion of the proceeds are earmarked for Taylor's AIDS foundation.

Last night, Chic hit the step and repeat for the Cinema Society's MoMA screening of Albert Nobbs, an Oscar-worthy flick starring Glenn Close as a woman masquerading as a man in 19th century Ireland. Naturally, we wondered: What's the manliest thing about you?

Patricia Field: "My mentality. I was never brought up to be a ‘girl,’ per say. I was brought up to be a person. I believe in the power of women."
Stephen Baldwin: "At age 45, I have to admit that I need more sleep. That’s the most manly confession I can make."
Mia Wasikowska: "What can I say that won’t be circulated everywhere? My cuticles! I don’t even know what man cuticles look like. That’s awful. I like beer. Is that manly?"
Rodrigo Garcia (director): "Not a thing! OK, my lack of patience."
Tony Danza: "That’s a loaded question, isn’t it? I’m needy." [Journalist on the red carpet: "That’s really a lovely thing to hear, Mr. Danza."
Lance Bass: "I’m obsessed with football. Go Green Bay Packers!"
Zoe Kravitz: "Right now? My body odor. I’m a little sweaty."
Courtney Love: "I like to compete with guys and do better than them. I’m learning that economics is really hard for women, but rock and roll is easy. I get kind of butch about that."
