Fans of Indochine have been having quite the time celebrating the restaurant's 25th Anniversary this fall. Besides revisiting the past with book parties galore, the big party took place this Friday when stars and socials alike came to pay their respects to the "banana leaf jungle" with a "1920's Shanghai" themed bash.

Indochine co-owners Jean-Marc Houmard, Michael Callahan and Huy Chi Le welcomed their loyal patrons with a memorable night of drag performers, go-go dancers (on poles AND in giant birdcages), and entertainment by The Ones, Peppermint, Epiphany, Narcissister, and Raven O.  DJ's on hand included Nick Cohen, Belinda Becker, Rawdon, Coleman, Mess Kid, Donna D’Cruz, and Wanda Acosta.

The party went on for a solid SEVEN hours on Friday night (!), and saw more than 900 guests including names like:

Naomi Watts & Liev Schreiber, Iman, Padma Lakshmi, Alexis Bledel, Willem Dafoe, Laura Harring, Alison Pill, Rosie Perez, Michael Keaton, Narciso Rodriguez, Isabel & Ruben Toledo, Zac Posen, Catherine Malandrino, Tory Burch & Lyor Cohen, Griffin Dunne, Patricia Field, Brent Bolthouse, Lily Aldridge, Carolyn Murphy, Ali Hilfiger, Sky Nellor, Gabi Adi Ange ThreeAsFour, Victoria Bartlett, Victor Alfaro, Lily Donaldson, Andy Spade, Loree Rodkin, Erin Fetherston, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, Andy Valmorbida, Andres Serrano, Helen & Brice Marden, Kim Heirston, Genevieve Jones, Hope Atherton, Yvonne Force & Leo Villareal, Todd Eberle, Roxanne Lowit, Delevigne, Sante D’Orazio, Celerie Kemble & Boykin Curry, Donna D'Cruz, André Balazs, Gustaf Demarchelier, Zani Gugelmann, Jacqueline Schnabel, Stella Schnabel, Lola Schnabel, Jennifer Brill, Sam Shaffer, Isabel Rattazzi, Poppy De Villeneuve, Paz de la Huerta, Maury Hopson, Stephen Knoll, Allison Sarofim & Stuart Parr, Kate Schelter, Jason Pomeranc, Charlotte & Olivier Sarkozy, Charlie Shaffer, Sean Spellman, Ann Dexter-Jones, Jamie Johnson, Alex Kramer, Sean MacPherson, Taki Theodoracopulos, Harley Viera-Newton, Simon Hammerstein, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Byrdie Bell, Paz de la Huerta, Lex Fenwick, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Linda Fargo, Michele Hicks, Eva & Bob Shaye and Chiara Clemente, Robert Verdi, Irina Panta, Fernanda Niven, Carlos de Souza, Francisco Costa, Italo Zuccelli, Teryy Richardson, Caio Fonseca, Casey Spooner, Ross Bleckner, Kenny Scharf, Peter McGough & David McDermott, Roxanne Lowit, Carmen D’Alessio, Athena & Victor Calderone, James Kaliardos, Frederique van der Wal, Michelle Hicks and Nemo Librizzi.
