The Best Gig In Town

-------


The Standard’s ultra-chic 18th-floor bar (which will likely be known as the Boom Boom Room until the day it dies) is now a live-music venue. Singer Sasha Lazard became the space’s first official performer last night when she turned a corner platform into a stage for herself and a handful of musical collaborators and treated guests (including P. Diddy) to a program that encompassed everything from jazz standards to piano pop to opera-flavored world music.

“When I came here for opening night, I was so blown away by the aesthetic of this place. I had an immediate fantasy about performing here,” said Lazard, whose recent gigs have been at Joe’s Pub, the National Arts Club, and private events for Bulgari and Louis Vuitton.

Standard owner André Balazs invited her to perform after catching her at one of her regular salon nights. Lazard, who was concealing her nearly four-month pregnancy last night under a tulle Luisa Beccaria dress, will be singing or curating similar acts on a monthly basis.

That works for Diddy, who walked in near the tail end of the show. “It was beautiful,” he said from his corner alcove. “We’re on top of the world, baby!”

24-Hour Party People

-------


The ninth annual 24-Hour Plays was running late last night, but at the 25th hour, all was forgiven. As its name suggests, the star-studded casts had only 24 hours to meet with writers and directors to draft scripts and madly rehearse before hitting the stage with six ten-minute plays. So what’s 60 minutes more among famous friends?

Emmy Rossum confessed before the clock started that she had been a bit nervous, but gamely added, “I think the not knowing is the really exciting part.” To a packed house that included P. Diddy and Cassie, the cast didn’t disappoint. Demi Moore played against type as a nerdy, glasses-wearing sister. (The new Ingrid Bergman pen from Montblanc, the evening’s sponsor, had a cameo role as a prop.) Sam Rockwell played a convincing five-year-old and Naomi Watts his mom. And who knew Brooke Shields could carry such a wicked German dominatrix accent while doling out raunchy advice to Jennifer Aniston?

At the after-party, Eva Mendes was relieved it was over but loved the rush: “It was my first time onstage and now I think I’m addicted!” In the roped-off section, naturally, Demi and Ashton (a fellow 24-hour performer) chatted with friends, while Watts and Rockwell were in a more raucous mood—the duo jumped on the banquettes to dance. There was good reason to celebrate: The evening raised $350,000 for the Urban Arts Partnership to fund arts programs in NYC schools.

Kate Moss (the girl is on a roll this week) will be the subject of a career retrospective at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris next year. Think she’ll be able to handle all the attention?

Words of wisdom from the New York Post: “If you don’t want to get photographed topless wearing a mermaid costume, don’t go to P. Diddy‘s star-studded White Party topless wearing a mermaid costume.” We really couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Two breaking-news items that will shock you: Lindsay and Sam are dating. Clay Aiken is gay. Were you sitting down?
