In a diary entry dated March 8, 1981, Andy Warhol described a phenomenon he had discovered called the “2000 Club,” a group of men who had purchased 2000 bottles of Dom Perignon only to lock them all in a vault. The plan was to wait until New Year’s Eve, right before the start of the Read More
Stefano Tonchi — the editor of W and, to put it lightly, a very sharp dressed man — stood unblinking at the DVF Studio in the Meatpacking District Wednesday night. His hand held no cocktail, and he waved off a number of the choice hors d’oeuvres: seared tuna, quiche, salmon roe. He posed for a few pictures and then talked to Read More

In the main room of Provocateur on Wednesday night at 8:30, the D.J. was blasting the song “Everyone Nose” (“All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom!

In the front row at the G-Star Raw runway show yesterday, Tinsley Mortimer clearly enjoyed herself — though whether she was happier with the clothes or with a chance to show off her boyfriend, Brian Mazza, is unclear. Ms. Mortimer and Mr. Mazza, who has been variously described as a “hospitality executive,” “gatekeeper,” and “nightlife Read More
At a party and presentation last night for IMPROVD, The Observer spotted Paul Johnson-Calderon sporting a bit of an uptown/downtown ensemble: blazer and bow tie up top; cutoffs, knee socks and sneakers down below.
