The seating arrangements for The Cosmopolitan's New Year's Eve dinner revealed some fascinating matchups.
Some had been all about energy pairings, some made good sense, and others deliciously raised eyebrows.
Film star Mark Wahlberg was at a desk with "Gossip Woman" star Blake Lively.
Jeremy Piven of "Entourage" sat with castmate Emannuelle Chriqui and rocker Deryck Whibley.
Star chef Todd English arrived fashionably late and asked for the desk of Colin Cowie, the legendary social gathering planner who put together this large opening-evening soiree.
