From the moment of entry to the final act, Performance Space 122 Spring Gala 2014 felt like vivid Lynchian reverie – in other words, seduction of the senses. Set deep in the Paramount Hotel’s surreal cellar venue, Diamond Horseshoe; PS122 presented a spectacular variety show hosted by Justin Vivian Bond and REM’s Michael Stipe, raising a total of $190,000 – making last night their best year to date.

Upon our first step, we were drawn in by chanteuse Leah Siegel. Her entrancing voice synced to pulsating balloons lining the spiral staircase, playing like a Pied Piper leading us down into the cellar. Once down the rabbit hole and through the curtains, it was like stepping into Oz: a fantastical, gilded, neo-cabaret room with just a touch of steampunk for effect. No, we were not in Manhattan anymore.

New age accapellists, KHORIKOS, began the show with a sudden drop of ... Read More

Shading the evening’s diners in hues of orange, silver and burgundy, a colorful canopy of benefactory balloons floated above the Waldorf-Astoria’s grand ballroom, representing the undeniable support of the Women In Need Foundation’s 18th Annual The Way To Win Dinner Honoring Liz Rodbell. Working to break the cycle of homelessness for women and their children, the record number in attendance – including many notees within fashion and media – together raised a grand total of $4,000,000 for the WIN Foundation.

Presented by Ivanka Trump, WIN honoree, Liz Rodbell, President of Hudson’s Bay and Lord&Taylor, spoke of her efforts with the foundation and why she loves doing it. “When Jamila Peets [Keynote speaker and WIN member] put on her dress at Lord&Taylor this afternoon,” she began, “her face just lit up. That’s why I love doing this: seeing a dress make a woman feel like a million bucks.”

And Jamila certainly looked ... Read More

Six floors of modern art from 170 legendary artists, focused in the heart of Midtown’s posh 57th street. That’s what Leila Heller Gallery’s newest location unveiled last night, attracting an exclusive selection of New York’s art elite.

Curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody and Paul Morris, Leila Heller Gallery’s LOOK AT ME: Portraiture from Manet to the Present exhibits works by the most celebrated artists of the past three centuries: Manet, Matisse, Picasso, Man Ray, Warhol, Haring, de Kooning, Renoir, and Degas… to name a few. Found even on display was a print from our Patrick McMullan.

With art of such regard, the typical wonder of ‘If these walls could talk’ comes to mind; but tonight, the walls in fact did, with many a subject peppered among us guests. Lorne Michaels was snapped alongside the Jonathan Becker photo from his early SNLs day; Sigourney Weaver popping in alongside her Firooz ... Read More

Backdropped by a cinematically slickened Central Park South, the Time Warner Center rolled out the red carpet for its namesake’s annual gala of international influencers and impresarios: The Time 100 Gala, Time’s Most Influential People in the World.

Punctuated by rousing performances from Pharrell Williams, Carrie Underwood and Late Night’s Seth Meyers, the damp weather could not affect an otherwise memorable evening radiating with stars, dignitaries and visionaries alike; and buzzing around the gala with Patrick McMullan, this little fly on the wall caught many a moment.

The gala kicked off, appropriately, with the step-and-repeat photo ops, where poised for the press were the always stunning (and dashing) Amy Adams, Christy Turlington Burns, Edward Burns, Katie Couric, Frank Ocean, Susan Sarandon, Padma Lakshmi, Diane Paulus, Georgina Chapman and Gov. Scott Walker; while many listees from the less chased fields were charmingly awestruck with the pomp and parade – activist (and upcoming ... Read More
