So all of the predictions were right; Carlos Quirarte and Matt Kliegman‘s latest hotspot Westway is the fashion after-party spot of the season. There’s no one that screams glamor quite like Carine Roitfeld-her family, who were all in tow, even inspires sites like “I Want to be a Roitfeld“. So when Barney’s decided to fete the launch of “Carine’s World” the former Vogue Paris editor’s guest-edited Fall 2011 lookbook, it seemed that everyone in New York showed up for the party.


When Valentino, Anna dello Russo and Margherita Missoni are wailing out karaoke in front of an A-list crowd you know you’ve come to the right place. The evening made for some scintillating sartorial moments–Daphne Guinness gabbing with Courtney Love, Carine Roitfeld and ADR belting out 80s hits–the list goes on and on. Models Karolina Kurkova, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes and Lily Cole mingled with fashion elites and Hollywood stars alike. The ageless Jared Leto (seriously–how does he do it??) and pal Terry Richardson (a frequent collaborator of Carine’s) were in their element at their buddies’ club along with fellow regulars like AVENUE’s September cover girl Alexandra Richards, designer Alexander Wang and of course the Olsen gals. It was certainly a party not to be forgotten anytime soon. It’ll go down in the books like most anything a Roitfeld does. Vive la France est vive la Roitfeld’s.
