“Boom is back,” announced Andre Balazs’ private invite and the club formerly known as The Boom Boom Room (now called The Top of the Standard) is officially off summer hiatus and raging into the wee hours once again. At Balazs’ return of Boom bash on the 9th, which started at 11pm (post-Chanel dinner bien-sur), the swanky boite was filled with famous faces (Liv Tyler, Elijah Wood, Courtney Love, Lance Bass, Diane Kruger, Selma Blair, Ice-T, Andy Cohen), leggy models (Naomi Campbell, Shalom Harlow, Jessica Stam, Angela Lindvall, Anouck Lepere) and NYC’s social A-list ladies (Tory Burch, Liz Goldwyn, Chiara Clemente, Lauren Santo Domingo, Elise Overland Annabelle Dexter-Jones. Allison Sarofim, Dr. Lisa Airan). Those willing to suffer a BOOM-ing headache the next day stayed past 3 a.m. when Kanye West jumped on the bar and did an impromptu performance. Boom has been banging every night of Fashion Week, so it looks like that rumor that Balazs is turning his hot-spot into a member’s only club are false, for now. And anyway – the velvet rope and master guest list is so tight chez Boom that it might as well be a private club anyway.
