Last Night's Parties: Alex Wang's Carnival, Courtney Love and Hole at Don Hill's, United Bamboo, and Steak at Peels
By 9pm last night Leah and I were getting a little loopy: Mostly because we both love to eat and we hadn't had time to, save for a bag of Pop Chips, since the early morning. So we headed over to Peels--the new restaurant from the Freemans guys--with Britt, who stared at us in awe as we devoured this steak. (In our defense: We shared it! And the bone just made it look bigger!) Then it was off to Alex Wang's carnival over by the IAC building. Pretty much every person who works in fashion/has something to do with fashion was there--from Alessandra Ambrosio to MIA, who was supposed to perform but maybe never did? No one seems to have stuck around for it. Fortunately, the parking lot was so massive that it wasn't crazy crowded--we had an amazing, amazing time. Belvedere vodka sponsored the carnival, which included a carousel--yes, we rode it--bumper cars--line was too long--and a crazy amount of games. Leah won at basketball, Britt won at knocking down the clown heads, I won at nothing--well, maybe ski ball, but there were no prizes for that. All in all, it was the best fashion party I've been to in a long time--maybe ever. While we were at Alex, Dhani was at United Bamboo. She told me this morning that it, too was a grand time. "It was fun--The Wooly drew lots of well-dressed people despite its out of the way location," she told me. "I didn't recognize anyone but everyone looked cool." Fair enough. After Wang we headed down to Don Hill's to see Courtney Love perform.
