Our voyeuristic gaze over the past 10 days —we've been leaning against at the snack bar, thrillingly people-watching at the Festival's parties and premieres—have been filling us with New Yorker pride. This is not Hollywood or the Oscars: this is downtown New York and we don't mish mosh or pish posh about when it comes to fashion.
Tuxedo colors—black and white—have been everywhere on red carpets, gardens, by the cocktail bar. We swear, it wasn't a mandate on the invite—it just seems that our people like to keep it classic in the limelight, which in our eyes gives the affairs even more bling. Here, some favorite moments from the festival... in black and white.
