(NEW YORK) Everyone loves a great sequel, right? A screening of 2 Days In New York last night was rendered all the more relevant by the locales of the Cinema Society, Grey Goose, and MCM-sponsored affair. First up, the chic set ducked out of the swamplike temps and into Landmark Sunshine Cinemas to watch the Julie Delpy-propelled flick (the woman wrote, directed, and stars in it! #toomuchtalent), alongside castmates Chris Rock, Alex Nagon, Alexia Landeau, and Owen Shipman. Also hitting the LES for the occasion: Tyra Banks, turning heads with a turned-around, derriere-flaunting choice of a step-and-repeat pose, plus Reverend Al Sharpton, Aaron Carter, Russell Simmons, Marisa Tomei, and Heather Graham. Arriving fashionably late, parking their shiny white ride around the corner, and still stopping for an iPhone-d photo opp with a few young fans? Ice-T and Coco (yes, a victory dance ensued for the wee ones).

Post-film, the crowd trickled south to DL off Delancey for some requisite afterparty action. As one Girls star departed—Zosia Mamet—another arrived (Alex Kopelman). Speaking of a fave show your Daily is still experiencing withdrawal from, we're pretty positive there was an Allison Williams sighting in Nolita an hour or two earlier. Can season two start already?

Back to that bash of the eve! The alfresco, open-roofed situation was quelled midway through the party, to the relief of ardent A.C. fans. Lollipop-like truffled arancini balls mounted on sticks took handheld noshing to a new level, though platters of shrimp cocktail and rounds of mini burgers weren't too tricky to contend with, either. Despite the heat, some partygoers clustered on an outdoor deck, made more bearable with a glass of Grey Goose-spiked fruit punch (or two, given the duo of flavors on offer. How festive!) in hand. However, the wise ones stayed hydrated or opted to turn in a bit earlier, as there was a steep descent down three or so flights of stairs separating a Wednesday night shindig from the realities of Thursday morning.
