It was an A-List turn-out last night at Sunshine Cinemas for a screening of “Restless”; the heart-wrenching new flick by acclaimed director Gus van Sant. The auteur posed alongside the stunning Bryce Dallas Howard who wore a sunshine colored floor-length gown that draped over her bursting baby bump. Taking a break from the hectic festivities of fashion week, stars like Sophia Bush, Michelle Monaghan and crooner Usher joined an eclectic mix of cool kids like Ryan McGinley and Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes. Not a bad turn-out for a movie garnering yet more Oscar buzz for the director and his cast.


After drying their eyes and fixing their faces, movie-goers headed to an exclusive party at Nur Khan’s latest hot spot Electric Room at the uber-trendy Dream Downtown. There’s nothing quite like watching Gus van Sant swap stories with legendary New York staple Patti Smith and actress Debra Winger on a Wednesday night.


Odd couple of the evening? Russell Simmons and his “rumored” girlfriend, the gorgeous (and ahem…young) actress, Melissa George. And who’s that we spotted canoodling with actor Thomas Jane (recent ex-husband of Medium’s Patricia Arquette)? None other than romance novelist Kira Stone. I guess we can call it a tie.
