Blasblog: The Queens of Holiday Cheer

-------

For many, this has been a most depressing holiday season. With unemployment rates skyrocketing and the economy in the can, it might be easy to just saddle up to happy hour and drink these next few days away until the new year rolls around. But that’s not what Stephen Gan had in store for his friends and family. Explaining that he felt an obligation to put a smile on the faces of us downtrodden fashion folk (How hard has it been to look at all these Dress for Less recession guides when all you want is a new Givenchy tote?), he decided that epic tranny ball at the Box would be his gift to loved ones and assorted Visionaire staff. Linda Evangelista co-hosted the festivities, which featured appearances by Lady Bunny, Sweetie, Flotilla de Barge and Lypsinka. Joining in all the sequined, fake eyelashed and bewigged glamour were Lady Amanda Harlech and her daughter Tallulah, Peaches Geldof, Diane von Furstenberg, Jen Brill, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Francisco Costa and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart. While I would never deign to name a highlight—I learned early in life to never, ever rank trannies—André Leon Talley did tell me had a soft spot for Lypsinka’s performance. “She is a very, very talented human being,” he said of her amusing rendition of Old Hollywood movie scenes before dramatically diving into the downstairs dressing rooms. “She dove into the steps like Michael Phelps in a crimson crinoline.”
