What’s a better way to start the summer than with an attempt to break a world record for biggest yoga class? Flavorpill decided to do just that, challenging 10,000 eager yogis of all levels to come to the Great Lawn in Central Park on Tuesday and get their “downward dog” on. Yoga — the secret behind keeping the likes of Donna Karan fit and fabulous.

By now you’ve seen enough photos from the Met Gala that you can probably recite from memory who wore what. The after-party at the Top of the Standard — also known as the Boom Boom Room — provided a whole different look at the glamorous attendees. André Balazs’s latest penthouse club is quite the change of scenery from the Met, in both location and atmosphere. I knew it would be the only place in town to be after the ball.

Yesterday I got a sneak peek at the Estée Lauder Companies’ latest ad campaign to fight breast cancer. I also got to see Estée’s old townhouse, which has been in the family for nearly 50 years and is rarely seen. Which is a crying shame — the place is a beaut!

I might be known as a party photographer, out all night shooting people enjoying themselves at the best parties New York has to offer. I do, however, shoot other things when the opportunity arises. So when Lucy Sykes from Judith Leiber called me about shooting a look book for the company’s latest purse collection, I was all for it.

Last night on the Lower East Side, the Box, usually known for its risqué shows, opened its space for the Somaly Mam Foundation’s launch of the Empowerment line of survivor-made products. The foundation is dedicated to pulling women and children out of sex slavery, and its efforts are currently concentrated in Southeast Asia. The space was packed; Box owners Simon and Francesca really know how to throw a party for just about anything.

Kai Ma Wilson and Olivia Ma Corwin are the sister team behind Porcelain, a girlie clothing line dedicated to figuring out the perfect fit. Both the girls were wearing pieces from the collection, and I must admit the clothes fit perfectly in all the right places.

MoMA’s receptions are always interesting, so I made a point of stopping by the opening night of Marina Abramovic’s The Artist Is Present, which might be considered the first performance-art residency at the MoMA. I’ve known Abramovic’s work for ages and have always admired her as an artist who lives for her work, but it was her House with the Ocean View piece in Sex and the City that helped propel her into the public eye. Even though an actress played her in the show, I was still drawn in by the performance!

If you ever get the chance to check out Jeff Koons's Studio, I suggest you run to his huge, garagelike Chelsea space. The studio reminds me of Andy Warhol’s Factory, only better lit. It pulses with activity and creativity! For example, although a party was happening to celebrate Koons’s new commission with BMW, a dozen assistants were busily painting, calmly working while the partygoers talked and drank champagne around them.

Imagine dreamy photos of a beautiful naked woman on a sultry summer beach that transport you away from a chilly New York winter night for even a few minutes. You really wouldn’t expect anything less from Milk Studios than a stunning — and nude-centric — exhibit, would you? “No. 3,” from the Saguaro Series, features 25-year-old Paz de la Huerta, an upcoming actress we will be seeing plenty of in the coming years.

As always at this time of year, the best-of lists and awards are being bestowed all over the place. One thing I have not seen honored yet is the Boom Boom Room, definitely the best nightclub to open this year. It reminds me of Studio 54, but with windows (and what a view!). The space is cool: You feel like you’re in some stylish starship, with the staff as fashionable and attractive as any attendee. There are even smoking alcoves that make it easy for smokers to step around the corner with a perfect excuse to stretch their legs.

A few months ago, I was asked to sit on a panel and talk about redesigning the rules of fashion in today’s media for the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund. As excited as I was to take part, I nearly overslept, since the night before was a bit wild — I had won Paper Magazine’s Nightlife Award for nightlife photographer, and in the spirit of the award, I was out very late. I rushed to the Times Center, where my fellow panelists were getting ready and talking in the green room. Dani Stahl and I discussed wearing our sunglasses onstage as we were wired for mics (I didn’t, but she wore hers on her head).

Gala season is in full swing; the fashionable masses are decked out in floor-length gowns or well-tailored suits, flitting from one charity event to the next. The Aid for AIDS My Hero Gala falls squarely into this category and is very close to my heart. Many of us lost friends during the first wave of the crisis, when it went unspoken for too long. Putting together my book so80s reminded me how many friends had their candle extinguished too young.

My destination last night was Skylight Studios, which was hosting the 15th annual ARTWALK NY, one of the bigger fund-raisers of the year. ARTWALK NY benefits Coalition for the Homeless, an organization that feeds 3,500 hungry New Yorkers a day, among multiple other programs to help the city’s homeless. I have taken part in ARTWALK NY for years, and this time around I donated one of my favorite photos of Keith Haring. This photo is especially timely, as Shepard Fairey will be using it as inspiration for a print, with some proceeds going to the Keith Haring Foundation. He just did a wonderful piece with Glen E Friedman, and I have great expectations for his interpretation of my good friend Keith.

Alternative Apparel is exactly what its name implies — an alternative to the conventional clothing company.

And the young people are getting the message — they were out and dressed to kill for Alternative Apparel’s party at the Hudson Hotel last Tuesday.

Gallery season is upon us, and last week I went to one of the first in what I am sure will be a long procession of well-curated shows. This particular show has a larger purpose than just displaying art. The PARC Foundation presented an exhibition by Invisible Children called INVISIBLE: FROM DARKNESS TO SIGHT. It was a walk through what it's like to be a child soldier in Uganda, where Africa's longest-running war still rages.

What do you expect from a party in honor of Jean-Marc Houmard's Indochine?

I thought the Teen Vogue Handbook launch party at Rose Bar would sadly be missing its target audience - primarily young teenage girls. It was a Tuesday-night party at a bar, after all. But there they were, teens and tweens, sucking down glasses of soda and flipping through the stacks of handbooks that the publisher had so graciously donated. The budding fashionistas were all decked out in their best outfits in hopes of impressing the equally well-dressed Teen Vogue staff, especially Amy Astley, the founding editor in chief of Teen Vogue.

The Armory Show is one of the biggest annual art events in New York, showcasing a carefully selected group of artists at Piers 92 and 94 on Manhattan's West Side. Every year the show commissions an artist to create an identity to define the exhibit, and Collis's vision will influence everything from the layout to the marketing materials sent out.

Fashion Week is always an exciting time, with the stylish masses descending onto the city like a 10 day long hurricane. Ten days, however, isn’t always enough time to fit in all the parties that people want to throw, so there tend to be preemptive events that still attract all the big names who are in town.
