The Asia Society’s Garden Court Café was transformed into a darkly lit den last night when Aprivateclub.com and Shanghai Tang threw a cocktail party celebrating the Society’s current exhibition, Art and China’s Revolution. “It’s such a great environment,” said Luigi Tadini. “I love especially that the lanterns match my coat, a deep purple.” Marissa Bregman was wearing a black Shanghai Tang creation with a deranged Mao collar, which cut away into a deep scoop front. “I’m funky,” she said, running a finger along the unconventional neckline. “I tried to add some chains to it.” In one corner, accompanied by ex-paramour Ashley Wick, Aaron Eckhart looked like he was trying to keep a low profile—but then again, in that lighting, who wasn’t?
