The Scene: The Helen Hayes Awards after-party

Every week our photographer colleague Rebecca D’Angelo goes to a party and does her thing for a regular feature in the Sunday Style section called The Scene. Actually this week she did two — this one, as well as the after party for the 29th Annual Helen Hayes Awards, held at the JW Marriott. Want to invite her to your party?
