Last night was the eve of the official New York Fashion Week kickoff, and the American Foundation for AIDS Research’s Annual New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street was the place to see and be seen — that is, if you’re an A-list model, celebrity, entrepreneur, or fashionista. The yearly event, hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker, raises money for — you guessed it — AIDS research, prevention, and education. This year’s reception honored the work of Roberto Cavalli.

Other movies that fall into this category: “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.” (But not “Sex and the City 2.” Never that.) While I’ll be waiting a bit for this flick to hit the small-screen so I can watch it in secret, one thing I can doright now is critique the clothing worn by the ladies who attended the movie’s premiere last night.
