The weather might have been gloomy Monday night on March 21st, but the stars dazzled on Top of the Standard Hotel for the Demolition film screening after party.

The actress and female lead of the film, Naomi Watts, looked stunning in her icy cool Valentino gown and ethereal Solange Azagury-Patridge jewelry. Her dashing co-star Jake Gyllenhaal joined her for the after-screening event as well.

The movie is the latest from the Oscar-nominated director of Dallas Buyers Club and Wild. Gyllenhaal plays a character, who begins to unravel his life after the unexpected death of his wife, while Watts’ character is there to help him heal from the “demolition,” in the Jean-Marc Vallée-directed movie.

The cast and grew previously attended the screening at SVA Theater in Chelsea. Some of the notable after party guests included Gyllenhaal’s mother and screenwriter Naomi Foner, Chris Cooper, models Helena Christensen and Nina Agdal,  Peter Davis, RJ King, Benjamin Thigpen, Heather Lind, Alexandra Agoston, Debbie Bancroft, June Ambrose, Dorinda Medley, Julian Sands, Alexander Lundqvist, Nat and Alex Wolff, Chris Benz, Anne McNally, Tony Shalhoub, and more.

At the dazzling after party’s attendees were entertained by signature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as they danced the night away on top of the Standard Hotel, enjoying the New York skyline.
