People Like Us...Party On A Monday Night

(NEW YORK) What do People Like Us, and people like them, do on a blissfully breezy Monday eve? Hit the Cinema Society and Allure screening of the Elizabeth Banks and Chris Pine flick at Chelsea's SVA Theater, followed by a rooftop shindig blocks away at Hotel Americano. The cast avec writer/director Alex Kurtzman (who based the film on his own experience meeting his half sibs for the first time at age 30) mingled with the Conde beauty glossy's EIC, Linda Wells, along with a mellow and chatty crowd including Girls' Zosia Mamet (The Daily loves you, Shosh!), Coco Rocha, Kenneth Branagh, Gina Gershon, Tyson Ballou, Rachel Roy, and Andrew Wyatt, one of the men behind the genius jams of Miike Snow.

When party time arrived, Banks, donning a spangled and shoulder-flaunting Elie Saab number for the occasion, preened for the cover of Allure this month, and got chatty with Wells (swapping behind-the-shoot vignettes, perhaps?) on the lower deck, where the north-facing vistas of midtown in its clear-evening-ed splendor and the smorgasbord of charcuterie fixings were in abundance. Up top, by the precariously-perched sliver of a pool (so pretty, and always seems so easy to topple in), Chris Pine hung out, as did those wanting direct access to the Grey Goose-stocked bar for cocktails of the Cherry Noir and elderflower-tinged Le Fizz varieties. When the breezes got too chilly, or the realization of a full week ahead set in, clusters of partygoers got whisked back to street level to reenter real life.
