The art of parties and beyond

Purple Magazine

     How better to end a colorful fashion week than with a Purple party? Hosted by the mag's chief Olivier Zahm, and co-hosted and/or DJ'd by Waris Ahluwalia, Chloe Sevigny and Benjamin Cho, the cozy shindig at Beatrice Inn brought out a spectrum of Purple fans, ranging from shrinking violets (an Olsen) to the ultra violet (Agyness Deyn, sun-kissed and cheery). Meanwhile, Madonna, caught buying a "Purple Penetrator" dildo just last week, was not one of them.
     Other bold-facers: Malcolm McLaren, Ellen von Unwerth, Michael Stipe, Waris' squeeze Chiara Clemente (who tells us she's almost done editing her first full-length documentary, on female artists), Sue Stemp, Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, designer and Karen O's stylist Christian Joy, Resurrection owner Mark Haddawy and Cory Kennedy, a party girl whose self-promotion skills rival those of the Sex Pistols mastermind himself.
     "Stand back" moment: Mary-Kate Olsen let loose enough to wag her tail on the dance floor to a Stevie Nicks ditty, though not enough to allow any snaps to be taken.
     Take-away of the night: Malcolm McLaren is obsessed with the electronic sounds of computer games. When not at work putting together a kid's line called Fashion Beast, he samples, loops and shares the beeps and whistles with younger web friends (not in the creepy way).
