Last night, Georgina Chapman, Mark Ronson, and so and so were all honored by the Young Patrons of Lincoln Center at Alice Tully Hall. Afterwards, guests and honorees alike headed to Hudson Hotel to celebrate, where Guest of a Guest talked to Mark Ronson. Our complete coverage below...One surefire way to amp up the star power at an event is to invite people with beyond fabulous plus ones, twos and threes. Such was the case last night at the Lincoln Center Masquerade Ball. Mark Ronson was honored for his work in the musical arts and proud mother Ann Dexter Jones was in front row attendance along with his twin sisters Samantha and Charlotte Ronson of designing and Lindsay Lohan dating fame. Half brother Alexander Dexter-Jones rounded out the impossibly chic family reunion. Having his relations there must have made Mark think of the past as he was happy to share memories of his time at Collegiate drinking on the Met steps - a move that Blair Waldorf would forbid on Gossip Girl.
Marchesa Designer Georgina Champan was at the ball as well with not as high powered as he used to be hubby Harvey Weinstein in tow. Celeb attendees including Kerry Washington rocked the designer's feathery confections and clapped along with Daniel Merriweather's stripped down musical performance in Alice Tully Hall before heading to the late night Interview Magazine after party at Hudson Hotel.
GofG got an opportunity to ask Mark Ronson a few questions about his school days. Read the conversation below:
GofG: You mentioned going to Collegiate School on the Upper West Side, where did you guys hang out? Where was the place to be? Ronson: We used to sit on the steps of the Met and drink 40s out of paper bags with Spence and Chapin girls. Actually we used to do the same thing at Lincoln Center at Alice Tully Hall, which makes it even more amazing that I was honored tonight. GofG: So basically you inspired Gossip Girl? Ronson: What? I don't know. I don't watch. I mean I guess. GofG: Who is the one new yorker, dead or alive, that you'd love to have dinner with? Ronson: [without missing a beat] Christopher Wallace
