Manhattan Magazine, Modern Luxury Media's newest gem, celebrated the launch of their premiere issue Tuesday night with a packed house at the Rainbow Room. The main event of the private cocktail party was Grammy-winner and R&B heart throb Robin Thicke, who stole the evening with his sultry tunes. While Thicke won over the crowd, guests including his wife, actress Paula Patton, Celerie Kemble, Bronson van Wyck, and Julian Niccolini mingled with Editor-in Chief Richard Martin and publisher Stephen Kong.
