blasblog: thanks to halloween, the weekend started on monday, and it’s still going
I’m not sure if it’s a recession-induced need to par-tay (and drink the remaining dollars away), or perhaps it’s just this fair city’s longstanding desire to dress up (I do love me some eyeliner), but on Wednesday night I went to my third—yes, third—Halloween party. And, mind you, that was still two days before the 31st. (The first was Allison Sarofim’s Japanimation fest, and then on Monday night Nylon‘s Dani Stahl hosted a party at the house of Joan Israel—who wore a The Devil Wears Prada costume—with a Monster Mash playlist.) Last night was Jeremy Scott’s party at Cain on 27th Street, co-hosted by Leigh Lezark and Greg K. from the MisShapes and drawing the likes of Mark Ronson and Cory Kennedy. Scott dressed as “a sexy centurion” and was excited because this is the one time a year he can wear animal prints and fringe skirts—”and not risk getting my ass kicked.” A far more subtle costume was Lezark’s, a multipiece puff dress and matching coat fresh from Scott’s Spring runway in Paris, which she described as a puffy, seventeenth-century Renaissance porcelain doll. More interesting to me, however, was her playlist. There was “Thriller” by Michael Jackson—which I discovered consistently makes it to iTunes’ most-downloaded lists at the end of October—and some new Madonna paired with, amazingly, the theme to Beverly Hills 90210.
