(NEW YORK) Before the crunch time of NYFW descends on the city's fashion denizens, a slew of them turned out alongside a coterie of Hollywood heavies and the always-lovely sprinkling of socials for the a screening of Haywire, hosted by the Cinema Society and BlackBerry Bold. The movie's director, Steven Soderbergh, turned out alongside producer Greg Jacobs and co-stars Ewan McGregor and martial arts maven Gina Carano for a screening at Landmark Sunshine Cinema, joined by a fashion flock of Calvin Klein, Rachel Roy, and Reed Krakoff avec wife Delphine. Vogue, Vanity Fair, and W were aptly represented in the fray, thanks to the media trifecta of Grace Coddington, Graydon Carter, and Stefano Tonchi on the premises. 

But mag and fashion darlings were just the tip of the iceberg: Blake Lively, Elizabeth Banks, Debra Winger, Gina Gershon, Billy Magnussen,  and 30 Rock's Scott Adsit braved the Wednesday night blusters outside for the occasion, plus Olivia Chantecaille, Shala Monroque, Bettina Zilkha, Drena DeNiro, and Kelly Bensimon. Other fun minglers included nightlife denizen Amy Sacco, Tony Danza, the always fabulous Debbie Harry, and former pop tarts Lance Bass and Aaron Carter (the latter is currently starring off-Broadway in The Fantastics...leading The Daily to wonder if the party still at Aaron's house). 

Once the thrilling flick about a covert ops agent, also starring Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Michael Angarano had wrapped, chicettes moseyed a few blocks east for the after party at Sons of Essex. Lots of low key lounging and late-night supping transpired. On the menu: battered mac and cheese balls, flatbread pizzas, maple-glazed hen crowning bite-sized waffles, and a stocked skirt steak and pork tenderloin taco station, and the nibbles were washed down by Haywire margaritas and Covert Manhattans concocted from Don Julio.

All in all, we're happy to report that save for a non-dramatic shattered glass or  two, things did not literally go haywire. Ready for round two of the Cinema Society's midweek screening double-hitter tonight? See you there, cheris...
