bunny tales

"I can do anything in it but sit," said Playmate of the Year, Raquel Pomplun, of the bejeweled, white-tail-embellished bunny outfit she donned for last night's Playboy dinner at The Standard hotel. The occasion was the unveiling of Richard Phillips' Marfa, Texas-based installation for the magazine—part of the new effort headed up by creative director of special projects Neville Wakefield to reimagine the men's mag and revive its art-world roots. (Apparently, Salvador Dali contributed to a few issues in the sixties, and Hugh Hefner famously asked Warhol to put his spin on the bunny emblem way back when.) "It's kind of beyond a dream," said Phillips when asked about working alongside the star of Playboy's centerfold. "Playboy figured into a very important initiation in my life," he added. "I discovered a whole bunch of magazines in the bottom drawer of my father's desk—which I'd have to replace very, very carefully, so I wouldn't be discovered. It became a gateway to a lot of things."

Phillips' installation—a blacked-out 1972 Dodge Charger set on a tilted cement stand next to a neon Playboy sign in the middle of the Marfa desert—was revealed to guests such as Johan Lindeberg, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Ryan McGinness, and, of course, Pomplun (who changed into a black cocktail frock so that she could, well, sit) via a film during a Texas-themed meal. "It's going to live on as a myth," said Wakefield of the eerie artwork. "I don't know that anyone's going to go down to Marfa to see it. We could have done it on a set—like the moon landing," he said, grinning.

Across town, at The Fat Radish, London-based designer Henry Holland invited Leigh Lezark, Alexa Chung, and Harley Viera-Newton to join him and cohost Dree Hemingway in feting his Resort collection. "She's my second wife!" laughed Holland when asked about how he and Hemingway became pals. The model offered an explanation. "He made me a purple lace wedding dress that I wore in his [Spring 2010] show. It was the most heavenly thing ever." On this particular occasion, she wore one of the designer's graphic red Resort looks. It didn't have a fluffy tail, but it packed a punch nonetheless.

Sheep, not bunnies, were the main event at a dinner that The Woolmark Company hosted for its new collaborator Narciso Rodriguez. Standing to toast the designer, Stuart McCullough, the CEO of Australian Wool Innovation, said, "Last week I was on a farm in outback Western Australia. Today I'm here at the other end of the supply chain. We aim to position our wool fiber next to the best designers in the world, and that's what brings us here tonight."

A Date With JLo

"I love this party because you have a sense that what you're doing is important. You don't feel indulgent," Kenneth Cole told Style.com at last night's amfAR Inspiration Gala. "Except maybe tonight's a little indulgent because we're at the Plaza." After cocktails in the Oak Room, guests were led, by drummer boy, to a military-inspired men's fashion show off the lobby. The whole affair was topped off with dinner in the Grand Ballroom. Liza Minnelli exclaimed, "I feel like Eloise!" And well she should, of course. Minnelli's childhood in the famous hotel is said to have inspired her godmother, Kay Thompson, to pen the popular children's books.

The Inspiration Gala, as amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost explained, is the night when amfAR honors the people who might not be HIV/AIDS activists but whose work informs amfAR's mission nonetheless. The evening's honorees were Alan Cumming, Valentino (he couldn't make it, so Iman accepted the award on his behalf), and Jennifer Lopez. A date with Lopez when she accepts her Walk of Fame star in Hollywood later this year was a highly coveted auction lot, especially after Lopez upped the ante by offering not one, but two dates. Dsquared²'s Dean and Dan Caten secured the first, and another bidder got the other, each for a cool $90,000.

Soho's Greene Street has become quite the retail destination of late (Saint Laurent's and Warby Parker's new stores come to mind, and Proenza Schouler is moving in later this year). Last night, designer Clare Waight Keller was the guest of honor at Chloé's new shop on the block, which opened in February. "Soho is back!" shouted DJ Mia Moretti over the cocktail-hour chatter. Later, at the Locanda Verde dinner, Waight Keller said, "I think it's all happening right here. It's like a two-mile radius of all of Paris coming together." Asked about her summer plans, Waight Keller told Style.com that she'll be splitting her time between Europe and California. "We're doing all the surfing areas, so we're going to the beach in Malibu." So is there a surf range in Chloé's future? "I need to do one!" Waight Keller said. "But we've got great swim. I can tell you that."

Waight Keller was far from the only designer being feted on this busy Tuesday. At Omar's La Ranita, in Greenwich Village, Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson toasted their Frame Denim collaborator Karlie Kloss, who has added designer to a résumé that includes model and cookie entrepreneur. The styles in the Karlie Forever line are inspired by Kloss' difficulty finding jeans long enough to fit her endless legs. File under #supermodelproblems. Uptown at Bergdorf Goodman, meanwhile, Roland Mouret was in from London and sitting down to supper with loyal stateside fans such as Maggie Gyllenhaal, Linda Fargo, and Leslie Fremar. It turns out customers don't just come to Mouret for clothes. At his trunk show earlier in the day, Mouret had bumped into a client who had recently bought two paintings from an exhibition the designer had hosted at his Carlos Place store.

And on to Chelsea, where Barneys' Mark Lee was celebrating the store's ten-year partnership with Proenza's Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. At least one editor in the crowd, Glamour's Anne Christensen, was wearing a piece from the designers' first major show, in 2003. "The clothes hold up," Hernandez said. "You know, we made them all ourselves. We had cutting parties, where we'd invite our friends over and hand them a pair of scissors." It was champagne and small plates that were being passed around on Lee's balcony.

Kanye Lets the Music Do the Talking

It might have been a rainy Monday, but with Kanye West on the docket—and his much-anticipated and, until now, rather closely guarded new album, Yeezus, on rotation—no amount of inclement weather could have kept the crowds from Milk Studios last night. Naturally, Milk's loading dock, which served as the venue for the impromptu party, was packed to capacity. And the mood—energized, chaotic, and more than a little buzzed—peaked as West rapped alongside the songs from his forthcoming album.

"If you want to sell music, you have to make better music," said West to the audience. "We've been squashed by the concept of opportunity, because there's over 1,400 billionaires in the world, and seven black billionaires…I'm here as the son of a Black Panther and a son of the first black chair of the English department of Chicago State. I feel like I know who I am now," he continued, concluding his introduction with, "I'll let the music do all the talking; I don't got shit else to say."

And talk it did, with ten tracks, which included a series of Kanye and Daft Punk collaborations, a song the rapper did with Chief Keef and Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) titled "You Can't Handle My Liquor," and a haunting, standout Billie Holiday sampling.

Scott Campbell, Timbaland, Theophilus London, and a bevy of models, including Freja Beha Erichsen, turned out in force, dancing alongside Jay-Z and Beyoncé. The superstar couple set up camp directly to the left of the deejay booth, where Kanye was perched with his friends and producers all night.

"Simply put, West was my slave name. Yeezus is my god name," explained the rapper before launching into a second playing of the moody, darkly political LP. "I'm going to play it back again, so if you all want to hear it again, y'all can stay, and if y'all got shit to do, y'all can do it. Right now." Needless to say, the crowd stayed.

Yeezus comes out June 18 via Island Def Jam.
