"Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi, remaining true to her foodie roots, turned up at the Nespresso Pop-up Cafe in Bloomingdale's for the launch of its newest espresso machine, while Brooke Shields attended the Drawing Center's Annual Auction at the Haunch of Venison gallery in Chelsea.

Also in Chelsea, the School of Visual Arts Theater premiered a new short film, "Keep Your Enemies Closer: Checkmate," by "Sopranos" actor Federico Castelluccio. Speaking of film, Mickey Sumner and Greta Gerwig were in the hot seat at the New York Film Festival's Live Talk at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center discussing their newest feature, "Frances Ha."
