(NEW YORK) Luckily, your Daily got just that at last night's second Cinema Society screening of W.E. at the Ziegfeld. This time, The Cinema Society paired up with the diamond purveyors at Forevermark for a second go at premiering Madonna's directorial debut, followed by a bash at the Boom Boom Room (do Vita Coco cocktails make for a lesser hangover? The jury's out on that one....).

What was different this time around? The lady of the eve—well, she's the lady of any eve!—brought out another starry coterie, including co-stars like James D'arcy and Andrea Riseborough (decked out in a marvelous Marchesa number, andpeppered with Forevermark gems, like a number of other glittering, bauble-d starlets), Martha Stewart, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, Helena Christensen, Lou Reed, Julia Stiles, Ewan McGregor, Gina Gershon, chef Alain Alegretti, and Andre Balazs.

Also in attendance: a bunch of serious fashion stalwarts—Donna! Calvin! DvF!—plus a large number of runway successes, like Proenza's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Cynthia Steffe, Rachel Roy, and Zac Posen (avec a dramatically crimson-clad Crystal Renn). "I can't remember if it was at the DJ booth at the Palladium, or at Studio 54," reminisced Klein of his first encounter with Madonna. Why did the dynamic duo strike up a friendship amid the glammed-out zenith of the clubbing days of yore? "Um...we were both looking for the same thing! We all were." Hmm. Wish we were there, CK!

On the topic of style (when is it not about style? Redundant question, darlings), Madonna wasn't styled by her daughter this time at the red carpet rodeo. But Lourdes has given plenty of blunt advice to mama Madge throughout the long-running W.E. press junket. "Mom, that's totally inappropriate, no one is going to take you seriously as a director!" mimicked Madonna of her lovely, and apparently precocious (and opinionated) offspring. Lourdes, can we hire you for the next step-and-repeat?
