Princess Eugenie seems to be loving her new life in New York City.

The princess, who is seventh in line for the British throne and the only royal living stateside, hit up the Dolce & Gabbana 19th Annual Artwalk NY Benefit Coalition for the Homeless on Tuesday.

"She looked totally relaxed mingling in the New York charity and art scene,” said an onlooker.

The princess, who is the daughter of Prince Andrew and Fergie (the Duke and Duchess of York), chatted with a handful of girlfriends and appeared to be without security according to the onlooker. She wore New York’s signature black and looked chic with her short shaggy auburn hair.

She may no longer be Richard Gere's pretty woman, but for Carey Lowell, life goes on.

The 52-year-old actress has made her first public appearance since news broke that she and Gere, 64, were calling it quits after 11 years of marriage.

On Tuesday night, Lowell attended the 19th annual Artwalk NY gala in downtown New York City. Dressed in a floral dress, black trench coat and strappy heels, she arrived solo to the charity event, which benefits the Coalition for the Homeless.

Lowell was a cochair for the benefit, alongside Alec and Hilaria Baldwin and model Coco Rocha. Interestingly, Gere was listed as the honorary chair for the event, although he was not in attendance.

Linnea Johansson Blogs About Making Your Home Party-Ready

Celebrity event planner and chef Linnea Johansson knows how to throw a party. She's worked with A-list stars such as Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon and Justin Timberlake and just released her second book, Perfect Parties – Tips and Recipes from a New York Party Planner in October. Now she's lending her expertise to PEOPLE.com with two blogs geared toward your holiday party planning. Cheers!

When planning a holiday party or a bash for any time of year, you may want to start with an easy, inexpensive dining room makeover.

Giving your old chairs a new look in no time to spruce up your dining room for the holidays and/or any party occasion. Simply wrap fabric against the back of the chairs and then staple the fabric on the inside of the back ... and you have new chair slip covers in a jiffy. This works great at home, and you can easily create a new look for a room.

There was not much to do on the food end as all the show hosts and chefs sent over their recipes for a menu. The space was beautiful but the chairs I rented arrived in the wrong color.
