BELL OF THE BALL: Byrdie Bell isn’t having the conventional college experience. The soon-to-be NYU sophomore recently completed an indie film called “Grand Street,” and a short film with Nathaniel Brown and Luke Worrall called “Blinders” that is making the festival rounds this summer. On Monday, Avenue magazine hosted a dinner and soiree for Bell, who appears on its July cover, on the terrace of the Gramercy Park Hotel.
