Pride Is in the Air
Pride month got off to a fashionable start on Wednesday, when Coach hosted a rainbow-hued party at the Monster, a venerable gay bar across the street from the Stonewall Inn. Saucy Santana performed before a youthful crowd that included Bowen Yang, Joel Kim Booster and Tommy Dorfman.
Also that night, the Guggenheim held a party for its young collectors (read: future donors) that included dinner and a performance by Perfume Genius. There were well-heeled guests with Hermes bags and Chanel jackets, emerging artists in avant-garde couture, and lots of men in business jackets.
And the Moth, the storytelling nonprofit, held a gala at Spring Studios honoring David Byrne on May 26. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Moth encouraged guests to wear silver, which many did in the form of sequined dresses, shiny jackets and even suits.
At the Monster pride party, influencers dressed by Coach mingled with leather daddies and drag queens.
“I have a hairbrush tucked in my underwear,” said Candice Saint Williams, who wore a skirt made from black human hair to the Guggenheim gala.
“The designer is a friend of a friend,” Hilton Dresden said of the dress he wore to the Monster pride party.
The Most Dressed features great outfits from up, down and all around town.
