Despite the snowy weather, hardy New Yorkers flocked to the legendary Ziegfeld Theater for the world premiere event for one of the year’s most highly anticipated films, American Hustle, presented by Grey Goose Vodka and Vanity Fair. Christian Bale was one of the first to arrive, followed shortly by Director David O’Russell, and other cast members, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Jack Huston and Louis CK. Noticeably missing was the scene-stealing Jennifer Lawrence, who jetted back to LA earlier in the evening to continue shooting for The Hunger Games. Other stars showed up to support their friends in the film, including Taryn Manning, Ashley Benson, Carla Gugino, Patrick Wilson and Behati Prinsloo.
Following the premiere, moviegoers exited the Ziegfeld and climbed onto coach buses that shuttled everyone to the beautiful Cipriani. Upon arrival, guests were greeted with Grey Goose Le Fizz cocktails before entering the massive space, which was decked out 70s style complete with sparkling disco ball and giant planters exploding with white feathers. Bradley Cooper posed with fans for photos, and later caught up over dinner with his main squeeze Suki Waterhouse. Amy Adams and Carla Gugino chatted casually, while Jeremy Renner and Louis CK shared a few laughs at a nearby booth. The newly engaged Behati Prinsloo was also spotted posing playfully with a friend holding Grey Goose Martinis. Other cocktails served throughout the evening included the aptly-named The Lady Edith and Irving’s Combover.
