Interview Magazine helped kick off fashion week with a party to celebrate "A New Look" last Thursday at the High Life location of Andre Balazs Standard Hotel, which is almost ready to open. Hundreds of fashionistas made the party where they were escorted up to the 18th floor and had a chance to take in the spectacular views.

Guests included, Mary Kate Olsen, Lauren Hutton, Diane von Furstenberg, Nick Hunt, Taylor Momsen, Andre Balazs, Alessandra Balazs, Haley Parks, Gered Williams, Jamie Williams, Julie Macklowe, Lydia Hearst-Shaw, Lesley Gurkin Schulhof, Iyanna Cummings, Teresa Schmitt, Taz Arnold, Khay Muhammed, David X Prutting, Joe Schildhorn, Heidi Kelso, Kevin Conner, Wendy Diamond, Kim Bates, Francois Alexander, Jaf Glazer, Tory Burch, and Zoe Turnbull.

Wanna know who else straggled their way in? DBTH who pretended to have fun for once and took jabs at whoever he could:

"Opening night of Fashion Week continues with the Interview Magazine party at the soon to be completed Highline location of Andre Balazs Standard Hotel.  Still a fairly raw construction site, the party had a pretty rough feel, with the bartenders wearing hard hats, lots of trannies and a somewhat chaotic door.  Up on the 18th floor, the views were stunning in all directions.  Notable attendees included DVF, Tommy Hilfiger (who we shared an elevator with), Sean McPherson, Terry Richardson and Lydia Hearst-Shaw.  Notable attendees getting no love at the door and forced to wait in line included Kristian Laliberte and Taavo Somer.  Now, that's our kind of party."
