DVF and Andrew Rosen Rally for the MePa

-------

FNO may be a thing of the past, but Diane von Furstenberg and Theory’s Andrew Rosen have appropriated the shop-till-you-drop evening fund-raising technique for their own philanthropic purposes. On March 18, the pair will host the first annual Open Market—an event that will bring music (DJ sets from the Misshapes, Nancy, JD Samson), food, cocktails, and fashion (sample sales from Alice + Olivia, Helmut Lang, Honor, Theory, DVF herself, and more) together to benefit the Meatpacking District Improvement Association. Set under one roof at the Highline Stages, the fund-raiser will be a “visual homage” to the vintage MePa days. We hope they don’t take the theme too literally, though.





To purchase tickets, visit meatpackingopenmarket.eventbrite.com. All ticket proceeds will go to the MPIA.

Blasblog: Celebrating New York In Paris…I Think

-------

There are at least two things I can count on in Paris: various fellow New Yorkers letting loose for fashion month’s last leg, and a late-night dance party at Regine’s. For the past few seasons, I’ve helped friends like Paul Sevigny, MisShapes Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol, and Tommy Saleh organize a little fête, appropriately named New York New York, that combines both. Last night was this season’s incarnation. The details are sketchy, but from what I can remember—and from the pictures mysteriously found on my BlackBerry this morning—it was as crazy an affair as in years past.

Holding court in one corner was a European contingent of Margherita Missoni, Tatiana Santo Domingo, Andrea Casiraghi, Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, and Lily Donaldson. Michael Stipe took over the booth next to them. And following a feisty entrance, Lindsay Lohan and her assorted entourage took over another. Lohan had in tow Irina Lazareanu, proudly boasting that the model was wearing one of her Emanuel Ungaro designs. “She’s in me!” exclaimed the blonde multi-hyphenate to Giovanna Battaglia, who had stripped down to an almost Lohan-esque look of bra accessorized with a brooch. As for the hazier moments, I do recall helping Katy Perry down from the mirrored table she had been dancing on, as well as Riccardo Tisci, out to celebrate his smash Givenchy show, holding a sexy blonde girl over his head. Someone sent me a YouTube link to a clip of me swinging Elle‘s Kate Lanphear around the dance floor like a rag doll. Who knows what may surface in the next few days? But hey, c’est la vie in Paris.

Browns And Nicholas Kirkwood’s London Dance Party

-------


A dance party for Browns Shoes, given by Nicholas Kirkwood, seems like the perfect occasion to talk about the unfortunate combination of high heels, swanky dos, and standing. Taken individually, each of these things is incontrovertibly good—high heels, good; swanky dos, good; standing, the thing that separates human from ape and thus, yes, good. But put them together and, well…ow. “If you know you’re going to be standing for a while, you want to wear a shoe that’s got some proper padding on the ball of the foot,” said Kirkwood on Saturday night at the aforementioned dance party he gave to fête the opening of Browns Shoes in London. “And if you’re wearing a really high heel,” Kirkwood added, “you’re best off with a platform, because that will cushion you against the ground.” Kirkwood, creator of heels about a mile off the ground, knows whereof he speaks, though it must be noted that at the fête itself, hosted by Visionaire‘s Cecilia Dean and makeup artist James Kaliardos, Kirkwood spent rather little of his time just standing around. Rather, inasmuch as the MisShapes and Love, of the band CSS, had been shipped across the pond to DJ, the thing to do was dance. Before he got his groove on, however, Kirkwood did offer some clues to the Fall ’09 collection he’s in the process of completing. “I’ve been working on a heel-platform combination inspired by what happens when, like, ice breaks apart,” he said. “If you remove the negative space between them, they’d fit together.” And how are the broken-ice heels for standing? “I can’t really say,” Kirkwood admitted, “as I don’t actually wear them myself.”

Blasblog: Hip-Hop And Hipsters In The Tory Fan Club

-------


At Tory Burch’s presentation yesterday at the Prince George’s Ballroom, it was clear that the designer’s appeal is branching beyond ladies who lunch. Way beyond. Kanye West, Santigold, and LL Cool J served as hip-hop ambassadors, while Burch fans Leigh Lezark and Greg Krelenstein represented the hipster demographic. One could argue that Burch’s current boyfriend, Lyor Cohen, a bigwig at the Warner Music Group, helped get the former crew familiar with the brand, but when I spoke to Kanye at the presentation he told me it was all about Tory. “I like what she does,” he said. “She’s classy and she’s elegant. I totally respect her aesthetic.” Lezark and her posse felt much the same way. “Everyone thinks she’s the coolest,” Lezark gushed.

Blasblog: A Double DJ B-Day

-------

With their weekly DJ residency at Lit—not to mention gigs at Dior and Visionaire parties—turntable artists Cassie Coane and Harley Viera Newton have quickly become staples of the downtown scene. So it’s only fitting that when the two of them celebrated their 21st birthdays on Tuesday night (yes, the friends were born on the same day), their party was packed with the crew they play music for. Zoe Kravitz, Mischa Barton, a couple of Misshapes, Hunter Parrish, and Magnus Berger all piled into the Arrow Bar on Avenue A. “I think they’re the coolest girls in the world,” Barton said of the birthday girls. “Take my word for it.”
