Fashion Week chatter this season revolves around the relative calmness and the laid back atmosphere. While September is always crazier – like a return to school after summer break – February takes a bit of a softer approach. It’s cold, the winter’s biting, and layers of sweaters, scarves, and hats make it hard to dress.
But last night’s party to celebrate Z Spoke and Purple magazine at the Boom Boom Room was anything but calm. It started off timid enough, but within an hour, every single inch of the top of the Standard was crawling with fashion insiders and celebrities from Alexander Wang to Jared Leto. The festivities began at Mr. Chow, where a few of Zac’s go-to girls, including Eniko Mihalik and Anna Cleveland celebrated the designer’s latest accomplishments, but moved to the Standard for late night dancing and revelry. Moving around the party required a serious bit of effort given the sheer number of people who were looking to party, but within the crowd, we spotted Constance Jablonski, Heather Marks, Karlie Kloss, and Lily Donaldson. By the time we decided to call it a night, there was a swarm in coat check, and we found ourselves stuck in line with Crystal Renn. Ending the evening chatting with her about Paris and joking about the coat mix ups was kind of the perfect way to end a Fashion Week evening. Or any evening, actually. ~ Bianca Posterli
