Last night Screen Gems and Axe Shower hosted the premiere of “Friends with Benefits,” the much hyped about flick starring rumored couple Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. Hoards of A-Listers made their way to the Ziegfeld Theater to celebrate the release and of course, to get an invite to the after-party at the Top of the Standard. Co-stars Emma Stone, Patricia Clarkson and Jenna Elfman beat the heat in summery frocks, but no one looked quite as cool as JT himself, who was sporting a slick Simon Spurr suit. A suit by Spurr, one of the designers featured in our upcoming Gentlemen’s Issue of Avenue, pretty much guarantees you fashion cred in my books so kudos to my favorite former boy-bander.

No premiere can go without a fantastic after-party, and the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Liv Tyler, Russell Simmons, Olivia Palermo and Cinema Society’s Andrew Saffir enjoyed cocktails, the roof-top breeze and an A-List evening in honor of the latest in casual dating rom-coms. I wonder if any of the guests were giving the “friends with benefits” idea a second thought?
