Last night, Harper's Bazaar and The ONE Group hosted the opening of The Collective restaurant in the old One Little West 12th space. We definitely saw Jill Zarin cuddling with her husband, and we're pretty sure we saw Jaslene canoodling with a globe:-

Pose, Jaslene, pose! We might turn this into an Easter present flipbook. (Does anyone else remember when she threatened to pull out mail-order-bride-Natasha's hair if Natasha was top model? We were the happiest we've ever been when that happened.)

The Collective is a new restaurant and bar designed by the iCRAVE team, who used found objects to create custom interior design. Emma Watkinson, our gal-on-the-scene, tells us,

"I sat on the plush leather corner couch drinking kettel vodka cocktails off a door/table overlooking a flock of license plate seagulls suspended from the ceiling. The drinks list is playful and cocktails are served up in jam jars - with random objects placed, like Andy Warhol style telephones around the bar it really does feel like a cluttered, yet stylish bazaar." And "with the DJ centrally located, you're never far away from the party."

The ONE Group is also the brains behind Bagatelle and STK. Head to 1Little W 12th Street, across from Pastis, to sample their newest offering, and to adopt your own car-part bird.
