I really haven’t been out much since Hurricane Sandy, so when the opportunity came up to go to W Hotel’s inaugural Love Hangover Ball last night I jumped at it. In support of amfAr (Foundation for AIDS Research) it was a cross between the fashion world and the ballroom world. If you’ve seen Paris Is Burning you know of the Vogueing culture. And if you’ve actually been to a real ball you’ll know this one was extremely abbreviated. Still members of the houses of LaBeija, Mugler, Mizrahi, Balenciaga, Ninja, Xtravaganza and more turned it out in categories such as Vogue Fem, Male Magazine Face, Runway and Sex Siren.
Above is Kelly Osbourne and the impressive judging panel including l-r: W magazine’s Creative Director Edward Enninful, Andre Mizrahi father of the House of Mizrahi, Barney’s Simon Doonan, Fergie, choreographer Fatima Robinson, Mickey Boardman of Paper Magazine and the legendary Hector Xtravaganza.
Below are a few shots from the runway.
