EAST OF EDUN: Before the lights went down at Edun Sunday night, the flashbulbs backstage looked like fireworks to the crow out front. Liberty Ross, Jimmy Iovine, Chelsea Clinton, Lucy Liu, Helena Christensen, Petra Nemcova and Tom Freston (drink in hand) kept Ali Hewson and Bono company in the front row. After the final turn, there was much camaraderie all around. Liu offered Clinton a ride home in the snow but the former First Daughter was all set. Nemcova kissed a few photographer friends including one who shared with her a photo of her on his phone from a while back.
Liu said she will direct an upcoming episode of “Elementary,” which has been picked up for seasons three and four. Syndication has also been locked up. “We have a long journey ahead of us,” she said. Even the Sherlockian actress has been surprised by its success. “You always expect it to be canceled. You usually expect to do it for three or six months just like a movie and then you move onto the next project. It’s actually kind of strange to be in one place working with the same crew. We’re forming a wonderful family that way,” said Liu.
And the family of the hour Sunday night — Hewson and Bono — were not wondering about the crowd’s reception. “Talented girl,” Bono said.
