Calvin Klein may have been last year's sponsor, but 2007's Whitney Art Party belongs to BCBG. Whitney director Adam Weinberg confirmed at last night's Fireboat benefit that the Italian fashion house has taken the reigns of the Whitney's big spring bash, which is often seen as a smaller, funkier companion to the annual Met Ball in May. (Think of it this way - if the Met Ball is Louis Vuitton, the Whitney Art party is Marc by Marc Jacobs... you could also compare Oscars and Independent Spirit Awards, if you're in Hollywood). How did the partnership happen? Adam says, "I met Lubov Azria; she was great... now we're getting all sorts of exciting people involved." Last year's guest list included Eva Mendes and Chloe Sevigny. But we remember meeting Katie Holmes at our first BCBG show in 2005, and expect similar glitterati at the Whitney bash. We hope our favorite BCBG ad star, Jessica Stam, comes too - contemporary art is sometimes difficult to process, so anyone confused by what's on the walls can simply look at her...
