(NEW YORK) What does it take to coax top editors, fashion royals, pop legends, and die-hard foodists to Ai Fiori? Not much—just a helping of Jessica Chastain and a side order of Dan Stevens (that's Downton Abbey's Matthew Crawley to you superfans). On an otherwise ho-hum Monday night, Harry Winston and the Leading Hotels of the World hosted the aforementioned affair at The Setai to celebrate The Heiress on Broadway, which if you haven't seen, you really should. (Ask Michael Kors how he liked it).

Harry Winston's own Frédéric de Narp, another chronic crowd-pleaser, welcomed the chicsters like Georgina Chapman, Brian Atwood, Andrew Saffir, Kyle MacLachlan & Desiree Gruber, Rachel Roy, and Elettra Wiedemann & James Marshall before settling in to an indulgent but restrained meal of beet salad and some delicious beef-filled tortellini en brodo (we think?) prepped by chef Michael White and administered by what must have been dozens of wait staff. Needless to say, no glass remained unfilled.
Leave it to Daniel Benedict, a newly-named Ambassador of the Leading Hotels of the World, and his crew to gather the actors 'n' actresses: the Tony Award-winning Nina Arianda, Christina Ricci (who arrived avec Thakoon), and fellow Heiress cast members Molly CampKieran Campion, Virgina Kull, and Dee Nelson, along with producer Paula Wagner. But the usually Hollywood goss was replaced by talk of—what else?—politics, given the impending debate. A few partygoers confessed to harboring sudden and "inexplicable" crushes on certain canditates, but we'll leave it to you to guess which ones.
