Last night, there were many a Fashion Week party. While we hung out at Prabal Gurung‘s Meatpacking shindig, others saw Odd Future perform at Alexander Wang‘s or went celeb spotting at the Purple party at Le Bain. But it was the Carine Roitfeld Barneys fete that has everyone talking. It all comes down to one word and one word only: KARAOKE.
Roitfeld entertained her guests at Westway, a former strip club near the West Side Highway. We knew the former editor loved karaoke, but we are beyond impressed that Roitfeld was able to get her fashionable friends to join in on the fun. The Cut‘s Bennett Marcus was there, and here is how he described what went down:
Roitfeld jumped on the runway — undoubtedly used by the strippers in the club’s previous incarnation — to launch the karaoke with a gleeful rendition of George Michael’s “Careless Whisper.” Roitfeld’s bravery loosened up the crowd and Simon Doonan followed, rocking “Nasty Girl.” Stefano Tonchi joined Anna Dello Russo in a duet. (Actually, Dello Russo joined almost everybody on duets.)
Oh, don’t worry. WE HAVE PICTURES. And then…Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti arrived. And they sang “Unforgettable” and “My Way”. Oh, don’t worry. WE HAVE VIDEO. Thank you to the Billy Farrell Agency for capturing this amazing moment on film:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
