The first Monday in May is quickly approaching, and for A-listers and fashionistas that could only mean one thing: The Met Gala! With a red carpet that stretches for what seems like miles and about a thousand-and-one flashbulbs going off at any given second, celebrity attendees obviously need to look their best. So how do they prep for fashion's biggest night? It all starts with skin.

Last night, infamous Instagram "appropriator" Richard Prince joined Fendi to host Free Arts NYC's 17th Annual Art Auction and soirée honoring Glenn O'Brien. Artists, A-listers, and girls-about-town crowded into the event on Chambers, at a space regal enough to reflect the guest of honor, a huge purveyor of the arts and king of New York cool. Paddle8’s Alexander Gilkes served as auctioneer during the live auction, posing pieces for partygoers including Jemima Kirke, André Saraiva, Hilary Rhoda, Tali Lennox, and Marilyn Minter. With art aplenty and the Perrier-Jouët flowing, it was a masterpiece of a night indeed.
Girl friends are supposed to be the missing link in your life to make you feel whole. Sex and the City said it quite well: "Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with." Hopefully you've come across the diamond of a best friend and latched onto her, but, as women are the dominate gender in the world, there are so many more possibilities for fostering new friendships. Here's the pitfall: not everyone is going to be worth your time.
It's a downtown world, and we're just living in it. But seriously. When was the last time anything even remotely interesting happened above 14th Street? Look at your life, look at your choices. A picture says a thousand words. And the place a picture was taken? Says even more. From tried and true standbys to soon to be classics, you'll want to take note before stepping out next.
Forget grimy pub crawls and basic sports bars, turn it up a notch this spring and go on a full-fledged rooftop bar tour of New York.

So grab your girlfriends and drop by a new rooftop every weekend this spring, because who wants to spend it anywhere but in the open air?
Donald Trump and Caitlyn Jenner, what an unlikely pair. While they may have stuck to their respective social cliques, they were both in attendance at last night's annual Time 100 Gala, which celebrated the most influential people of the year. With big names in fashion, entertainment, and media everywhere we looked, it was hard to decide who the biggest star there actually was. The best moment of the night, however, is easy: Caitlyn raising a toast and telling Donald Trump she used the restroom at Trump Tower: "I obeyed all the rules, I promise you, I didn't throw any feminine products down the toilet." Touché, Caitlyn Jenner.
Your dreams of ClassPass may be coming to a screeching halt. ClassPass established itself as the online service that makes in-demand boutique fitness studios available while keeping the price down with a deal of a single monthly fee. At the beginning of 2015, the NYC membership service was a mere $95 per month, so when you (finally) got off the waitlist, joining seemed like the obvious choice.
It's been over 10 years since the series finale of Sex and the City, and still, every friend group has a designated character. There are the self-proclaimed Carries of the world, the proud Samanthas, and the bashful Charlottes, but for some reason no one wants to be (or admit to being) a Miranda. She's like the Sporty Spice of SATC, the last one picked on the team. But why? She's a strong career gal, fiercely independent, and speaks to the cynic in all of us. Whether you like it or not, Miranda Hobbes is you, she's me, and she's pretty freakin' fabulous.
