Alberta Ferretti went the intimate route Tuesday night to celebrate her fall Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti collection.

After a high-energy presentation at Eyebeam, where Poppy Delevigne, Tatiana Santo Domingo and “Beverly Hills 90210’s” Shenae Grimes sipped champagne and mingled, a small group headed over to the Waverly Inn for a wine-fueled feast. A relaxed Ferretti held court at the center of the table, chatting with Amanda Peet and Devon Aoki, while Becki Newton and Peaches Geldof shared pet photos on their BlackBerrys.

“This is quite a knife,” said Geldof, eyeing the flatware accompanying her steak.

Across the table, Newton was digging into her cheeseburger with aplomb. The “Ugly Betty” star had a 6:30 am call time the next day, as she was subbing for

Kelly Ripa on “Live with Regis and Kelly.”

“I’m interviewing Barbara Walters,” she fretted.

As Aoki lingered over dessert with Ferretti, Peet said her round of goodbyes before heading home.

“I’m too old to be out this late,” she smiled.
