Chelsea Leyland Raves On
Twenty-five is a pretty big birthday, and Chelsea Leyland had no doubts that the quarter-century mark was something she wanted to celebrate. Last night, the deejay teamed up with DKNY Jeans to throw a bash, and invited friends such as Hannah Bronfman, Dree Hemingway, Waris Ahluwalia, and Fiona Byrne to fete her special day. The girl-about-town donned a custom second-skin catsuit for the affair and transformed Studio 450 into a nineties-style rave, complete with lasers and smoke. “During my downtime, I like to go to Brooklyn raves,” she told Style.com. “So tonight I’m trying to create a more manicured, chic Brooklyn rave for Manhattan.”
And what’s a rave without great beats? Leyland (who, of course, knows a little something about music) handpicked deejays Mess Kid and Brenmar to spin, and asked her friend Kilo Kish to perform. As the night began to wind down, the singer led the crowd into “Happy Birthday,” and the rave transitioned into the expected hugs, cheers, and well-wishing. It seemed that the evening was a success—but wait a minute: Isn’t it a faux pas for a lady to reveal her age? Leyland shrugged off the old adage. “It’s not like I’m turning thirty-five,” she laughed. Although we have no doubt she’ll throw an equally impressive party for that milestone, too.
