On Tuesday April 14th, guests gathered for the 14th annual Vanity Fair Tribeca Film Festival cocktail party hosted by Graydon Carter, Ronald Perelman, and Robert De Niro.
However, what made this night special is, for the first time after 14 years the newly rebuilt World Trade Center stands once again with its lit-up spire pointing to the heaven’s.
The stone steps of the Supreme Court acted as the backdrop for guests as they arrived to the celebration.
In attendance were familiar faces from fashion, TV and Hollywood alike —Diane von Furstenberg, Joan Smalls, Harvey Keitel, Amy Fine Collins, Fran Lebowitz and Ivanka Trump among them—as well Victoria’s Secret Angels Constance Jablonski, Lindsay Ellingson and fashion designer Zang Toi .
The Tribeca Film Festival was created in the months following the 9/11 tragedy to re-empower the neighborhoods of Lower Manhattan with a cultural and financial boost.
