A Night at the (Brooklyn) Museum
From a story by Steve Lewis, on blackbookmag.com:
The hottest ticket in town is tonight’s Jean Paul Gautier VIP Preview at the Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway. Featured is a preview of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gautier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk.
This exhibition is touring, and over 900,000 people catching it to date. This is the only east coast stop. Jean Paul Gaultier is playful, sexy, daring, fun. The designer himself will be in attendance.
The guest list includes Madonna, Calvin Klein, Karlie Kloss, Shalom Harlow, Kristen McMenamy, Coco Rocha, Thierry Loriot, Griffen Dunne, Alan Cumming, Suzanne Bartsch, Randy Jones, Hannelore Knuts, and Sally Jesse Raphael. Did I say Madonna? That’s a wow. Many of the costumes will be on lifelike mannequins by Jolicoeur International. Some of them move and speak. Sounds a little like a model agency soiree. Piper Heidseick is providing the champagne.
