It was another one for the books. The mob outside the Emigrant Bank building in the Financial District was practically throbbing as guests Kate Bosworth, Ellen von Unwerth, and Jared Leto made their way into Alexander Wang’s after-party.
The fact that the setting was a bank didn’t dampen the mood, because once through the metal detectors the only thing reminding you that were in a bank was the bar—and it was not a cash bar. The teller stations were all serving Belvedere, tended by dapper gentleman all suspiciously named “Rich.”
The models were out in force. Kasia Struss and Eniko Mihalik bounced through the crowd while Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, the new hosts of MYV’s House of Style, took their turns busting a move with the designer. Eventually Die Antwoord took the stage and sprayed everyone with SmartWater, before Busta Rhymes sprayed everyone with champagne. Surely no one minded.
