Guests brought their appetites to the Sony Screening Room Thursday afternoon for Lancôme’s special showing of Eat Pray Love for makeup artists including Sam Fine, Fulvia Farolfi, Sandy Linter, Nick Barose, Rebecca Restrepo and Rosemarie Swift. Makeup, movies and munchies….quel combination! The crowd looked supremely satisfied as they indulged in plenty of vino and plates of prosciutto pre-screening. "Just like Julia!" noted one attendee, eyeing a tower of feta. Elettra Wiedemann was one of the first supers to hit the buffet, filling up on crostinis in the spirit of the movie, which is a veritable feast for the eyes. Bon appetit!

This season, when Chic makes a journey to see the Mariinsky Orchestra and other attractions at the storied Carnegie Hall, we’ll finally have a place to indulge before all our classical bliss. Accomplished chef and sommelier Fabio Capparelli opened the doors to cityhouse earlier this summer, and the results are quite scrumptious. On a recent visit, Chic sampled everything from perfect foie gras to peppered scallops with a pop to a pan-seared piece of sea bass.  The chef’s braised specialty short ribs with potato gratin will get anyone one in the mood for three hours with Yo-Yo Ma & Co. And given that we’re sweet junkies here at Chic, the warm berry cobbler might be your ultimate midtown power lunch indulgence. THE DETAILS: cityhouse, 870 7th Avenue. (212) 707-5500

You thought you would have an anxiety attack if you lost your precious Blackberry? Imagine forgetting your $1 million Gresso phone in a cab. That would surely lead to an early demise. The ultra-expensive accessories firm Gresso, who can upgrade your proletariat python case on your iPhone and encrust diamonds on the back, has really outdone itself with the new Luxor Series, featuring two decadent models. The Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot retails for a cool million bucks, and is decorated with 45.5 karats of rare black diamonds, African Blackwood back paneling, crystal sapphire keyboard, and 180 grams of pure gold. The other version, sans diamonds, is a mere $20,000. You might want to start scrambling though if your heart is set on the Jackpot: only three will be made!

Color us confused. It took Chic more than a few glances to figure out what in the world this Kidrobot creation could possibly be. While the multicolored creature looks like something straight out of Teletubbies land, the “Mr. TTT Bench” is actually a furniture-friend, perfect for the toddler in your life…or perhaps a very, very whimsical adult. THE DETAILS: Kidrobot, $650

Back in March, Bulgari announced its partnership with Brit designer Matthew Williamson for a line of handbags---and although a full presentation of the collaboration will take place in September during Milan Fashion Week, the first shots of the collection have been released. It will include three styles of calfskin bags in geometric shapes (and in his signature bright colors, like rubellite pink, emerald green and sapphire blue) and a collection of canvas tote bags in kaleidoscopic prints inspired by some of Bulgari's iconic jewelry. The capsule collection will be available at Bulgari stores in January 2011.
