Last night it seemed that everyone who is anyone was at the Tribeca Grand Hotel where The Cinema Society and Ivanka Trump Jewelry hosted a screening of new Fox Searchlight film, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. With an after-party hosted by Diane von Furstenberg at her downtown studio, the evening attracted everyone from Hollywood celebs to fashion industry insiders. Director Wayne Wang, producers Wendi Murdoch and Florence Sloan and the stunning cast were on hand to celebrate the release, mingling with the likes of Anna Wintour, Nicole Kidman, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Karen Elson, Olivier Theyskens, Rachel Roy, and Harvey Weinstein.

In line with the film’s setting in China, Grey Goose provided some particularly scrumptious cocktails; the Grey Goose La Poire “Pear Flower” providing a welcome refresher from the balmy heat.

And of course, a little AvenueInsider scoop for our readers today. Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon was spotted at the event accompanied by a very handsome and very…ahem…young looking date. Has this New York socialite gone from Playboy to play mate?
