Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield.

Before the motorcade of black cars made its way from the premiere of Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight at the Paris Theater to the after-party across town at the midtown jazz club the Harlow, the infamous director and his wife Soon-Yi Previn had already left. However, the director’s absence did not halt the festivities celebrating the film, which brought together a colorful cast, including Emma Stone, who stole the show with her performance as an eccentric psychic in the Cote d’Azur. At the party, guests such Jessica Joffee, Margaret Qualley, and Josh Lucas lounged on velvet couches, looking perfectly at ease while snapping selfies and saying hello to friends old and new in the opulent restaurant. Riding the high of the romantic comedy under an archway of roses, actress Christina Hendricks appeared radiant. “We thought it was beautiful and whimsical and it just sort of felt like a pleasure the whole time,” said Hendricks, still beaming at her husband Geoffrey Arend. “My cheeks are hurting from smiling.”
