We've already filled you in on the Hudson Hotel's new space, and last night Interview magazine put Good Units to good use, inviting several hundred of their nearest and dearest to help blow out forty candles on the birthday cake.

It was the unofficial kick-off of New York Fashion Week, but you'd never guess otherwise, judging by the hordes of beautiful people streaming into Midtown's fancy new subterranean playground. Seen spinning and dancing and flipping pages of Interview's newest issue, which features Jay-Z on the cover, were nearly all of the city's in-crowd and a few international stars as well. Real Housewife Kelly Killoren Bensimon partied in a little white dress, while People's Revolution's most successful intern Whitney Port reunited with former bosses Robyn Berkley and Emily Bungert. Also spotted in the crowds were Fabiola Beracasa, Kate Bosworth, Josh Lucas, and Naomi Campbell.
Of course a Fashion Week party wouldn't be a Fashion Week party without some of the industry's most influential designers and muses. Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler was there, as were Mary-Kate Olsen, Daphne Guinness, Chloe Sevigny, Terry Richardson, Leigh Lezark, Hana Soukupova, and nightlife empress Amy Sacco. Patrick McMullan arrived with a camera crew for an as-yet-unidentified film project he is working on with Sundance, and Kelly Cutrone fielded a million and one questions about her hit reality show and new book, which has already made it onto the New York Times best-seller list.
This roster proves how coveted an invitation will be to Good Units and how successful its launch has been so far. We're eager to see if the hype holds true - between the Hudson's comeback and 29th Street's Ace Hotel, we may even be tempted into moving permanently to Midtown! Just kidding. Maybe.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
