Superhero in Spandex

The Tribeca Film Festival is two weeks away, but it’s always movie night in NYC. Last night’s double feature kicked off when the Cinema Society and Gucci Guilty screened Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the Tribeca Grand. Chris Evans plays the masked superhero, and had some choice words to describe the on-set experience: “It was sweaty. Those spandex suits are always uncomfortable. To be honest, I don’t even think they wash those things!”

Jokes aside, Evans is pretty modest about being the eye of this particular Hollywood storm. “I never really thought this would happen,” he told Style.com. “No one really thinks that they’ll ever end up with a part like this. It’s overwhelming, exciting, and humbling. There’s this enormous sense of gratitude.” Helena Christensen, Toni Garrn, and Liya Kebede all turned out to see Evans in his skintight suits.

Meanwhile, at MoMA, Tiffany & Co. hosted a private screening for Maggie Betts‘ new indie short, Engram. “It’s such a small project but is so heartfelt,” Betts said, “and it means so much to have everyone show up.” An engram is a phantom trace of memory, and the brief film is about how even the happiest ones fade away. Afterward, Betts and a bunch of friends headed downtown for dinner at The Marlton. The group included Barbara Pierce Bush, Indre Rockefeller, and Olivier Theyskens, and the occasion was Prabal Gurung’s birthday. There were new memories to be made.
