Young and the Guest List: December

Cinema Society’s New York Premiere of Noelle

In holiday spirit, the Cinema Society hosted a screening for Disney+’s new comedy, Noelle, at SVA Theater. The cheerful film, which stars Anna Kendrick as Kris Kringle’s daughter Noelle, centers around her frantic search for her brother who was expected to take on the responsibilities of Santa this season. Keeping with the evening’s theme, Kendrick donned a mini dress decorated with a giant bow that resembled gift wrapping, while many guests wore Santa hats that were handed out upon arrival. And the holiday mood continued at the afterparty at the Top of the Standard, where partygoers were greeted by carolers and welcomed into the Boom Boom Room adorned with Christmas decorations and serving festive cocktails like spiked cider. The lounge also played seasonal favorites like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” Guests included Kingsley Ben-Adir, Billy Griffith, and Gracie Lawrence from the film, as well as Kim Director, Jill Martin, Eve Plumb, Ashley Haas, Alex Lundqvist, Sophie Summer, and Timo Weiland, among others.

Assouline’s Dinner at Indochine

Last month, Assouline hosted an intimate dinner with Nordstrom to celebrate its new coffee table book, Interview: 50 Years, which chronicles the magazine’s notable columns and photography over time. Originally launched in 1969 by Andy Warhol, Interview is known for its prominent pop culture coverage, and Indochine—one of Warhol’s old favorite downtown haunts—offered the perfect setting for the anniversary celebration; the restaurant’s exotic décor and modern prints of pop culture artists (including one of Warhol himself) reflected Interview’s position in New York’s history. Guests included Bob Colacello, Derek Blasberg, Ellen von Unwerth, Owen Wilson, and others.

Rescue Dogs Rock’s 2nd Annual Gala at 583 Park Avenue

Late October, the nonprofit Rescue Dogs Rock hosted its second annual gala at 583 Park Avenue to raise funds for animals in need. The evening, which was co-chaired by Georgina Bloomberg and Lara Trump, began with a cocktail reception and silent auction before emcee Bill McCuddy officially welcomed guests and kicked off the main presentation. Rescue Dogs Rock co-founders Jackie O’Sullivan and Stacey Silverstein took to the stage and discussed the organization’s mission of saving homeless animals that have been abandoned throughout the country while guests dined. The speeches were followed by dancing and a live auction that raised critical funds for the charity. Guests—many of whom brought their furry friends along—included Lizzie Asher, Pamela Morgan, Leesa Rowland, Randi Schatz, Sydney Sadick, Sonja Morgan, Justina Valentine, and Jesse Watters, among others.
