Emmy Rossum got the nape of her neck tattooed last night at Art Production Fund's White Glove Gone Wild benefit. "I have to do Kelly & Michael tomorrow morning," she told, "so I figure I'll wear my hair down, because if my mom sees me on television with a tattoo, she might disown me." Not to worry, Ma, the tattoo was only temporary. With artist Wangechi Mutu designing the tats, plenty of people in the crowd, which included Marina Abramovic, Dita Von Teese, Dianna Agron, and Karlie Kloss, were eager to get inked. "Can they make me a bracelet with a 'CH' on it?" asked Carolina Herrera, one of the gala's honorees. Max Snow, however, wasn't allowed near the station. "He has too much ink already. I put a cap on it," said his wife, Vanessa Traina Snow.

In addition to honoring Herrera and Linda Yablonsky, APF enlisted top-tier talent to collaborate on the party. Marilyn Minter was on hand to do portraits of guests (for $1,000 a pop); Vanessa Beecroft did her first New York performance since 2009; and Aurel Schmidt designed the table centerpieces. On top of that, Jeff Koons, Enoc Perez, and Ugo Rondinone all donated pieces for the live auction, which raised more than $100,000. The evening started to wind down around 11. "My table started to talk about orgies," one male guest reported. "I decided it was a good time for me to go."
