Last night the penthouse of the Soho Grand was on fire with many many Warholian fans. That's right, Andy Warhol's famed DOUBLE MARLON - a double silkscreen of an uber hott (yes with 2 t's on purpose) Marlon Brando was on display courtesy of Christie's. A group of the most fashionable and fun notables from the art, beauty, fashion and media worlds were on hand to fill the space. Model Agyness Deyn and designer Derek Lam held court as they hosted this dog and pony show of beauties and art admirers.
Some other websites were saying just how impossible it would be to get into this party. For Guest of a Guest, not so much! We were there, watching you, watching us. We know that you know that we caught it all.
The Silver Factory this was not, but the crowd was just as cool. GofG mingled with Actress Leven Rambin (wearing an amazing Lia Sophia ring), men's wear genius Thom Browne (did he notice his design inspiration in my ensemble??), designer Jeremy Scott, socialite Byrdie Bell (in fab yellow shoes), style.com's Derek Blasberg, designer Keith Lissner in toe with Rachelle Hruska (who looked stunning in one of his creations), trend predictor Kim Bates, socialite Genevieve Jones hanging at the DJ Booth with Paul Sevigny, Revolution-ary PR lady Kelly Cutrone, Christie's Lydia Fenet, hiding out in straw hat Chessy Wilson, my fav Heir Apparent Kristian Laliberte, the lovely Emma Snowdon Jones (stealing other people's leather biker jackets - and you know what I mean), Plaza powerbrokers Andy Hinckley and Shirelle Segal, and Parker's Andrew Parker.
When I thought it couldn't get any better, actress Annabel Vartanian sauntered in with Gilles Mendel and the fabulous Carrie Cloud (toting an amazing Anya Hindmarch bag) and then there was Grace. Grace Rauh of the New York Sun from my pre-calculus days back at Greenwich High! This night was full of amazing surprises. And we even got to take home a coffee table book on Warhol/Double Marlon! Sha-Zam!
