Think Punk Gala, put on by The Armitage Gone! Dance Organization, presented the first annual Gone! Award to Jeff Koons and The Honorable Earle I. Mack at Capitale last night.  It was a revival of an arimitage punk classic (Punk Cabaret) and exclusive sneak preview of a world premiere and special guest.  The attire was Punk! Chic and there was a Gala Art Auction with a live auctioneer that followed the dinner.  Our favorite punkster? Karole Armitage, the founder of the organization, who donned a rocking Punk dress and 'do.

Other punksters included (more photos below)....

Jeff Koons, Calvin Klein, Rufus Wainwright, Fabiola Beracasa, Chris Bollen, Francesco and Alba Clemente, Dominique Levy, Earle and Carole Mack, Charlie Scheips, Nicole Miller, Michele Zalopany, Andre Balazs, Alison Sarofim, Mary Boone, and many more.
