Two Museums, Two Parties
SNL at AMNH and Zadig & Voltaire at the Guggenheim
Zadig & Voltaire's Cecilia Bonstrom and Thierry Gillier invited a few friends to the Guggenheim last night for the rare privilege of a private viewing of the new Christopher Wool exhibition, followed by dinner. The opportunity for a leisurely stroll through the rotunda sans crowds was enough to draw the likes of Olivier Zahm, Vito Schnabel, and a late-arriving Lindsay Lohan way uptown. Even better, the museum's strict no-cameras rule was suspended for the evening, a situation Dannijo's Danielle and Jodie Snyder made the most of. "This one will make a great Instagram," said Danielle before ushering her sister over to a stenciled floral work. Smile for the camera-phone!
Across the park, the photographers were in overdrive, with Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels chairing the American Museum of Natural History's annual gala. There was a lot of star power in the room—Seth Meyers, Baz Luhrmann, Karlie Kloss, and Mayor Bloomberg included. Florence and the Machine performed. But the evening's biggest get was Josh Hutcherson, aka Peeta Mellark, taking a break from Catching Fire.
