The red carpet at Lavo's opening last night saw its share of stars, including comedian Reggie Watts, former N*SYNC-er Lance Bass, socialite Tinsley Mortimer, and reality-TV darlings Kelly Bensimon and Olivia Palermo. Even hip-hop entrepreneur Russell Simmons made an appearance, his arms wrapped around a svelte young lady (who is not his girlfriend. Sports Illustrated model Julie Henderson, hmmm). -

Already a nightlife fixture in Las Vegas, the NYC Lavo features a restaurant upstairs (with ridiculously hearty food like one-pound meatballs and oreo zeppoles) and a banging nightclub downstairs. Click through for some more pictures:
