The annual TriBeCa Film Festival Artists Program dinner hosted by Chanel was at once fabulous and extremely random in it’s guest list. Leelee Sobieski, Adam Kimmel, Camilla Belle, Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber, Arizona Muse, Kim Cattrel, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Val Kilmer, Karlie Kloss, Stephanie Seymour and Robert De Niro were just some of the awesome attendees.
No one however was able to outshine the latest PR spectacle that is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who arrived at the dinner, as a couple.
According to WWD, even before their grand arrival to the party, the pair who are rumored to be dating were the talk of the town on Twitter. The conveniently “K” initialed couple also appeared hand-in-hand at the opening of Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend and baby daddy, Scott Disick's new Manhattan restaurant RYU on Monday. Kim has much to smile about besides West by her side. Earlier in the day it was announced that the family inked a deal for three, yes three more seasons of the Kardashian reality show with E! for a cool $40 million.
"We're so excited, we've been doing this for a long time now, we're all really excited,” Kardashian said, as she made her way into the packed restaurant in a form-fitting black and white Chanel cocktail dress. “We're all in New York right now, the whole family's here. You know every day we're together it's a big celebration. We celebrated last night for Scott's opening. It was [also] kind of, you know, for the new deal."
"It's three seasons, so that's really a year and a half," Kardashian corrected as West remained characteristically press shy at her side. "I'd like to be a little bit more behind the camera, which I'm in the works of doing, but I'm fine with it. I love it."
WWD decided then to ask Kim if the media interest in her latest high-profile relationship had helped in sealing the deal for such an extended length with E!. Interestingly enough, it was not Kim who eagerly answered. "Who are you talking about? What guy are you talking about?" laughed West, unable to help himself as he broke into a smile.
Aside from the aforementioned couple we did spot some amazing people at the vent. Model Jessica Hart showed up sans her synonymous “fun-bun” holding an Olympia Le-Tan book clutch. Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Carine Roitfeld’s daughter looked beautiful and quite pregnant, while Annabel Dexter Jones who we just profiled looked super chic in a white dress and minimal makeup.
Poppy Delevigne looked amazing in a Chanel dress paired with a cropped leather jacket and soft braided updo while Vogue’s resident high-street secret shopper Lily Kwong kept it safe in a rather simple black and white dress. Also on hand was model and DJ Harley Viera-Newton in a fantastic canary yellow Dolce & Gabbana jacket.
Loads of the women also sported bright red lips which are a big beauty trend this season. We spotted berry hued pouts on Liv Tyler, Alexa Chung, Jen Brill, Lily Donaldson and even Kim as well.
