At The Westway, Pandas On Parade


The scariest part of stylist and Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti’s Friday night “Zombie Panda” Halloween party in New York? The prospect of not getting in. The line outside the Westway was long by 10:30, and the best shot of getting through was a costume worthy of Formichetti himself—the sexy kittens, vampires, and zombies of normal Halloweens didn’t hold much sway. The host himself was wearing a vaguely military getup with blacked-out panda eyes. “A few years ago my friends started calling me ‘Nicopanda’ and the name sort of stuck. It became this extended version of myself as an ‘avatoon’—which is an avatar/cartoon,” Formichetti said. (Much-tattooed pal Rick Genest, a.k.a. Zombie Boy, became part of the panda avatoon family, too—he’s the titular Zombie Panda.)

After a performance by The Black Soft, Greg Krelenstein from the Misshapes took over the sound system, spinning pop favorites from Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and of course, Lady Gaga. Before it became a dance floor, the Westway stage played catwalk for the evening’s best dressed. CLICK FOR A SLIDESHOW of our favorite looks.
