Following the Awards Merry Laxmas Christmas Lacrosse Player Reindeer Santa Claus Ugly shirt. ceremony last night, Virgil Abloh and Gigi Hadid headed back to Manhattan to continue the celebration at none other than the Le Chalet at L’Avenue at Saks. Close behind were family and friends Bella Hadid, Derek Blasberg, Joan Smalls, Kerby Jean-Raymond, Winnie Harlow, Heron Preston, Aurora James, and Brandon Maxwell.
After parties really are the unsung heroes of award season, giving attendees and winners the chance to mix and mingle casually Merry Laxmas Christmas Lacrosse Player Reindeer Santa Claus Ugly shirt. Abloh and Hadid took the mix part quite literally last night when they traded off deejaying for the rowdy crowd. Off the dancefloor, waiters passed “Saks in the City” and “The L’Avenue Gin and Tonic” cocktails to thirsty guests keeping the party well and alive past midnight.The venue’s underground speakeasy meets rustic Swiss chalet-vibes offered guests a transformative escape from the night’s main event at the Brooklyn Museum. Instead of hiring a professional photographer, the host team including Kevin McIntosh and Cully Smoller, along with Abloh and Hadid, passed about a disposable camera to let guests take a turn behind the lens. To maintain energy levels after hours of glam, photos, and the lengthy ceremony, Le Chalet’s kitchen served late-night comfort food including french fries, spring rolls, and individual portions of mashed potatoes. Through and through, last night’s party provides hard proof that Monday night can be just as fun as Friday night, especially with Abloh and Hadid. Central Park teemed with life last night. Little leaguers faced off on the baseball diamond, after work revelers snuck in bottles of rosé, and from the Great Lawn, a soundtrack of show tunes could be heard echoing through the trees as The Public Theater held its annual gala at the park’s Delacorte Theatre. Usually reserved for the company’s tricky to get tickets to Shakespeare in The Park showings, the amphitheater and its adjacent yard had been repurposed for cocktails and alfresco dinner. “It’s just not summer unless I see a play here,” Jane Lynch told Vogue. “I just love the whole idea of The Public, and how great they are at supporting really talented artists who are young and maybe untested. I’m a big fan.”
