You know you’re in the chicest room when Daphne Guinness is there, so last night, the penthouse at 57 West 57th Street was the place to be as a veiled Guinness and photographer David LaChapelle surveyed the a preview of the exhibition “When the Fairy Tale Never Ends,” which was curated by Lara Pan and is the inaugural opening of fordPROJECT, an art series sponsored by Altpoint Capital, the owner of Ford Models.


The room was packed and the art was great – with pieces and special installations by Paul McCarthy, Eleanor Antin, Robert Lazzarini, Kenny Scharf and many others. In the crowd we spotted: Jamie and Bettina Prentice, our January Avenue cover girl Hannah Bronfman with her brother Ben, Casey Fremont, Tim Goossens, William Heath, Lisa Anastos, Rafael de Cardenas, Honor Titus, Anastasia Rogers and Giles and Stacy van Praagh, to name just a few.
