Enjoying a night out with the girls, Whitney Port attended the Charlotte Ronson afterparty at The Eldridge in downtown Manhattan on Friday night (February 13).

Hosted by Smartwater, the MTV reality starlet and a few friends made their way inside for the fancy shindig, with Whitney taking a moment to pose for photographers upon entrance before joining in on the fun.

Noticeably absent was Miss Port’s Aussie hunk boyfriend, Jay Lyon, who surely found something better to do than talk fashion with the ladies.

Nonetheless, Lyon says that he and Whitney’s love is for real, telling OK! magazine, “She’s a great girl and I love spending time with her. She’s definitely a keeper. She’s really sweet and of course I want to hold on to her.SPL80397_004
