Model Lily Donaldson may not actually “quoth the raven,” but she looks SMASHING!
It girl did the rounds this weekend, starting on “mischief” night (Friday) with socialite Allison Sarofim’s party in the West Village where the Texas billionairess socialite invited all of her plastic surgery pals to dress up in Eighties gear, neon colors, Michael Jackson splendor and Tama Janowitz heroines (Janowitz wrote the Eighties’ bible, Slaves of New York.) I figure these gals must love this holiday since they can really hide behind the makeup. The real lovelies came out in droves on Saturday, actually Halloween, at the Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room for a party hosted by the Last Magazine. Karen O sure seems to be making the rounds in the city these days, but no one would recognize the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s neo punk in a massive blonde wig and cheerleading skirt. Standard hotel owner Andre Balazs grooved as a pirate with a few sexy lasses to Nineties vintage tunes like Technotronic and Rhythm is a Dancer. Models, rockers, and gorgeous grovelers. The beautiful people live.
