Cinema Society, Hugo Boss host preem

What – or who – would make a flock of beautiful people descend on the Tribeca Grand, as they did Wednesday night, for a screening of an obscure, enigmatic Danish movie about amnesia and lost love?

The main draw was superfemme Helena Christensen, who was hosting the Cinema Society (along with fashionista sponsor Hugo Boss) unspooling of “Allegro,” in which she features in her first thesping role, as a mysterious lady who disappears from her lover’s life and causes him to lose his memory and his talent as a pianist.

After the movie, guests including Liv Tyler and Royston Langdon, Josh Lucas, Fabrizio Ferri, Terry George, and Karen Duffy mingled in the forecourt of the Soho Grand, while the leading lady herself was modest about her acting future:

“I actually felt like a spy on set, and I kept thinking that people would come round at any moment and lift me off the lot.”
