The AmFar Inspiration Gallery took place last night at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the red carpet was a mixed bag. Courtney Love showed up, obviously, looking like a train wreck. How does she end up everywhere? Designers Michael Kors (who won the amfAR Award of Courage) and Kenneth Cole posed with a stunning Heidi Klum. James Franco suited up to receive his amfAR Award of Inspiration, while a teeny-waisted Jennifer Hudson performed. Ke$ha showed up looking drunk as usual and wearing an Abed Mahfouz gown that looked not exactly right on her. Add a clutch of models like Alek Wek and Chanel Iman and a totally incredible Rufus Wainwright, and voila! — successful event, check. To check out the rest of the arrivals action, take a look at our gallery below.

It would appear that anyone who has ever worn clothes was in attendance at the Women’s Wear Daily 100 Anniversary Gala last night. Fashionistas like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Iman, Anna Wintour, and Michael Kors were there, both Top Chef hosts, Padma Lakshmi and Katie Lee, were there (was that weird?), and then there were the total randos: Henry Kissinger, Jessica Szohr, Alex McCord. Seriously, elbow combinations you never dreamed of were rubbing last night. The one thing they had in common though was that everyone looked amazing. Check out our gallery to see what we mean.
Last year, we were pretty sure that Christie Brinkley was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs after the sordid details about her divorce from Peter Cook went public. (You remember, that’s the case where he slept with an 18-year-old and they both demanded that the other get sent to prison – classy!) It’s nice to see that one of Christie Brinkley’s divorces hasn’t ended in complete sleaze though, just look at how happy she and her beret are to be hanging out with ex-husband Billy Joel and their daughter Alexa Ray.
They were all together for the premiere of Last Play At Shea at the Tribeca Film Festival chronicling the Piano Man’s final concert at Shea Stadium before it was torn down. Also in attendance? Joel’s other ex, Katie Lee, whom he divorced last summer. Now that just seems awkward. Or is is sweet? We’re so used to divorces ending badly that all this supportive, nice behavior is weird.
