In what seems like a love affair with nostalgia, the social scene having been bitten by Jazz Age fever, the annual Whitney Art Party, held at Skylight at Moynihan Station, brought us right back to 2013. This rite of spring, always the nexus of art, fashion and entertainment, did not disappoint.

Nicole Trunfio reminds us, here, of Robert Herrick’s poem “Delight in Disorder”: “A sweet disorder in the dress / Kindles in clothes a wantonness,” wrote the poet. He knew whereof he wrote! Ms. Trunfio’s artful dishevelment (she’s wearing Leila Shams, her publicist informs us!) at one of the summer’s biggest charitable events–not to mention the Carrie-ish peek, if one can call it that, at a contrasting dark undergarment–leaves us intrigued! She doesn’t quite fit into the groomed crowd at Luna Farm–but boy, does she stick out!
You think you’ve had some wild nights, just try and top this: “When I was 30, I was at a party and a woman tapped me on the shoulder and said ‘Hey, I’m your sister,’” writer/ director Alex Kurtzman told The Observer.
Last night The Cinema Society, with Linda Wells and Allure, hosted a screening of People Like Us, a film that is loosely based on and fully inspired by Mr. Kurtzman’s own journey starting a relationship with his sister at age 30. The film stars Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks who were both at Chelsea Cinemas to debut the drama/comedy. We’re not sure if it was the movie or something in the popcorn, but love and inclusivity was in the air.
