Elizabeth Olsen – younger sibling to those wonder twins – joined her costars Hugh Dancy, Brady Corbet and Julia Garner at the New York Film Festival screening of “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” held at Alice Tully Hall last night.
And the crowd goes wild! No, seriously, they did.
The little sister that towers over her older and richer offsprings is herself generating enough attention to rival that of Mary-Kate and Ashley. Although at the mention of her name folks immediately suspect an imminent appearance of support.
And they are generally right. The entrepreneurial duo were photographed sneaking into the post-screening party at the Empire Hotel.
No matter really. Hugh Dancy!
Other notable attendees: Chace Crawford, Parker Posey, Bob Balaban, Andrew Levitas, Christian Campbell and LX TV’s Pedro Andrade.
HTC – the cellphone makers perpetually attempting to compete against the Apple genius of IPhones – scheduled a culinary fete at the Highline Stages in NYC a few nights ago touted to be a “product launch event.” The guest lists screamed A-LIST with the likes of Charlize Theron, Leighton Meester, Hugh Dancy and rising star Elizabeth Olsen along with Gossip Girl hottie Penn Badgley and lesser red carpet staples Rashida Jones and Charlotte Ronson. Certainly a not to miss venue – on paper.
The talent arrival commenced with the lesser known Olsen sister clad in a creme colored mumu. Girl stepped onto the entrance way and promptly picked up stride and sprinted off the carpet leaving a press line wondering what was going on…? ’Perhaps she had to pee,’ offered one pap. ‘She’ll be back’ quipped another.
No she wouldn’t be!
This very same action repeated with the arrival of Hugh Dancy who, hands in his pockets and head bowed down, made like he had just shoplifted one of the new phones being launched and was attempting an inconspicuous get-a-way cept for he was just entering.
And the crowd, noticing a theme, Booooed!
This did not go over well with the event organizer who raced over and proceeded to drop a total of three F-bombs on the photog line.
“Don’t you fucking booo my guest,” she yelled out. Two more followed but you get the general tone of what they were like…
The PR then made a huge effort to “Serve Up” the chefs participating in the theme along with D-list types like Max Winkler, Jodie & Danielle Snyder, Cary Levine and Paul Iacono. If you are asking yourselves ‘who?’ we share in your sentiment.
Cameras down, a slew of them did.
The evening climaxed with the arrival and photo-ops of Penn Badgley, Rashida Jones, Charlotte Ronson and Book of Mormons TONY winner Nikki M. James. Hot Chocolate Mathew Thomas was a personal favorite for us. Brother was ripe!
And then came word that Ms. Meester would be delayed an “maybe an hour,” and Theron was a “we don’t know.”
Well, need we point out that a few packed up and vacated promptly.
Final word on Theron and Meester is that they arrived few minutes shy of the witching hour and breezed through the entrance forcing the die-hard crew to machine gun they shortened step-and-repeat.
Event worth the time invested? Not in a hells chance less you were working all access. We do hear the likes of Jonah Hill and Jeffrey Wright also making an improptu appearance at the posh set-up.
I am finally wrapping up my Met Gala Costume Institute photo roundup. And as such I am giving you all the heavy hitters of the red carpet.
Beauties: Zoe Saldana (who would not let me take a photo of her arriving at her hotel a few nights before the event,) Emmy Rossum, Emma Watson, Eva Mendes, Gwen Stefani, Demi Moore, Matthew Morrsion, Jude Law, Hugh Dancy, Sienna Miller (getting that photo was work I tell you, ) Kate Hudson, Kerry Washington, Kirsten Dunst, Oprah and Rachel Weisz – to name a few! (Damn, my carpel tunnel just flared!)
It is great to have this event behind us and not have to think about it for another year. I said it before and it bares repeating – although a fab event, it is way too much of a good thing! Covering this annual momentus soiree should come with a holiday on some white sandy beach!
A big thank you to the The Met Museum for extending us coverage and to Anna Wintour’s genius!

I know girl ran and used a hand sanitizer hidden in her publicist purse.
Hell, I was grossed out myself given that, from my vantage point, I had long ago spotted the sweat dripping down the rolls of his neck from said head. Had I taken the time to eat breakfast, I would have surely upchucked it!
The sad part (it does get sadder!) is that she wasn’t the first to pen on the barren landscape!
Alec Baldwin had done the initial honors and left this mamoth individual to gloat to all within earshot (and then some, thanks to cell phones) about how his “favorite” actor had signed his fat balled head.
Well, the bitch Danes (who was once blamed for Mary Louise Parker’s split from Billy Crudup,) gets the man (again) so I’m going to sit here and gloat with the solace of my having got the photo! (I know, I know, but I have to tell myself something to keep from finding her and kicking her in the small of her back!)
Congrats to the happy couple!
Lord knows all those hours clocked in the parking lot awaiting on the White Plains’ Bloomingdales to open must account for clear cut evidence… And Tracie is my witness (or partner in blackbelt shopper crime!) Well…
Throw in Hugh Dancy, the films leading man and I’d walk across Palin’s backyard in a moose costume or my Speedo! He is the yummiest trans-Atlantic specimen I have seen since Tom Ford’s final YSL collection. Totally edible… Top it off with Isla Fisher – she is one crazy bitch – as the overly accessorized leading lady, how can you go wrong?
So in all I’d say it was worth the chill, now all I am left with is seeing the film on a comp!
