There are beleagured PR girls all across Manhattan this morning preparing to commit Seppuku, I assure you, but Fashion Week is almost. over. Last night was (relatively) quiet as people are conserving energy to go all-out at the FW closing parties tonight. Here's what happened around town on Wednesday...
In a week that has been dominated by clubs, it's somewhat of a surprise that the biggest events of the evening took place at restaurants...
Jeremy Scott After Party
Who Was There: The MisShapes, Bryan Boy, Paul Johnson Calderon, Amanda Slavin, Cristina Civetta, Waris Ahluwahlia
Details: This was the unofficial after party for the Imitation Of Christ Show; most people walked right over from Milk Studios as soon as the show was over.
Proenza After Party
Who Was There: Lazaro Hernandez, Jack McCollough, Adrien Grenier, Michelle Rodriguez, Derek Blasberg, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss
Other Details: Reaction to last night's Proenza after party was a little less effusive than the Don Hill's hubub has been before. Sure, people are pretty excited about actually getting in, but inside, the place is packed, and even a performance by The Crystal Stilts was met with lukewarm-ish reception. To be expected, really, after nearly six sequential nights of huge parties.
The GQ Fashion Week Party
Who Was There: Jay-Z, Kanye West, Adrian Grenier, Omarion, Serena Williams, Trey Songz (who performed)
Other Details: Adrian had a camera with him all night, which he used to shoot the photographers on the Step and Repeat as well as the party.
US Weekly Celebrates 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers
Who Was There: Jessica SImpson, Olivia Munn, Will Arnett, Kelly Rutherford, Krisin Chenoweth, Bethenny Frankel, Olivia Palermo, Alexis Bledel, The Sartorialist, Jonathan Adler, Vampire Weekend
Other Details: Strict door, but fun and easy going inside. Adrian Grenier again with the camera....
The Incubator Party
Who Was There: Diane von Furstenberg??
Details: They served coac leaf liquor, (coke, but not the hard stuff)
Who Was There: Georgina Chapman, JIM CARREY, Olivia Palermo, Rachel Zoe, Natasha Bedingfield, Leighton Meester, Rob Thomas, Rachel Roy, Tinsley Mortimer
Other Details: Georgina Chapman, Rachel Zoe, and Jim Carrey in the same room, you guys. All we're saying.
