When Vanity Fair throws a party, everybody comes. So it was no surprise that when they threw a party at the Tribeca Film Festival, celebrities, old and new, and of every profession turned up. Young Hollywood was ably repp’d by Anna Kendrick and Abigail Breslin. Hollywood royalty, on the other hand, included the likes of Robert de Niro, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken and director, Ron Howard.
There were designers (Calvin Klein and Diane von Furstenberg), rappers (Pharrell) and supermodels (Helena Christensen) that went as far back as Lauren Hutton, even! From the miscellaneous lot, Jerry Seinfeld, Zach Braff, Martha Stewart, Ed Burns, and Emily Mortimer showed up. Take a look at our gallery to watch the motley crew arriving at the do.

Well here’s a pairing certain to get Funny Or Die dorks excited. The Hollywood Reporter says that Zooey Deschanel and Rashida Jones will play a couple in the upcoming movie My Idiot Brother, concerning a slobby Paul Rudd‘s attempts to avoid living at his uptight mom’s by staying with his ambitious sisters instead (Elizabeth Banks and Emily Mortimer will join Deschanel as his siblings). While Deschanel and Jones have never worked together before, both are popular hipster daughters of behind-the-scenes legends (cinematographer Caleb Deschanel and producer Quincy Jones), both have musical careers and both have spent plenty of time playing girlfriends in bro comedies (Jones even played Rudd’s in I Love You, Man).
While the coupling of Deschanel and Jones should help Brother pass the Bechdel Test, it’s kind of disappointing their scenes will just be background for a more gender-centric You, Me & Dupree. Banks, Deschanel, Jones, Mortimer have all done time in the comedy trenches (and we’re guessing the same will go for whoever plays the mom)—will this movie let them show their skills or just have them gawking at Rudd’s goofiness? We should find out sometime next year.

Sunglass Hut has gone through some serious rebranding of late. The chain is no longer just a hole in the wall, hidden next to the Panda Express at your local mall, they apparently want to project a new image now, starting with a new flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York and a lot of celebrity fans – and indie celebs at that. Cool, Brooklyn-dwellers like Emily Mortimer and Alessandro Nivola were in attendance at the shop’s grand opening, as were Fabrizio Moretti, drummer for The Strokes, Rachel Bilson, and Juno actress Olivia Thirlby. Weird, right? Maybe they struck a deal where everyone gets free shades to help throw off the paparazzi.
