Unlike the London world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II last week, the entire cast of the blockbuster didn’t make it to the New York event today. But Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis and Alan Rickman joined Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in making sure the loyal fans were treated to more time with their favourite stars on the red carpet. Matthew, who plays Neville Longbottom, was flattered by fans’ comments that he had outgrown his nerdy, chubby look, and he recently revealed that he had to wear a fat suit and false teeth to film the later movies. Tom and Alan took time to sign autographs and appreciated that so many people had camped out to see them despite the sweltering New York conditions.
Stars were out in NYC Tuesday night for the closing of Marina Abramovic's "The Artist is Present" show at The Museum of Modern Art. Courtney Love attended in a classic black gown, while Liv Tyler's dress was subtly revealing, with a bold neckline. Bjork stood out in her spectacular gold number, while Christina Ricci wore a risque sheer frock.
James Franco looked smug as one of the lucky guys surrounded by the gorgeous women. Musicians Michael Stipe and Patti Smith also attended—albeit slightly more dressed down than the other guests. It's no surprise though, since Patti wore jeans to the glam amfAR benefit at Cannes.
