Wednesday evening, troupes of headband-wearing girls (not of the Blair
Waldorf variety) and guys sporting hedge-like beards descended on
Skylight Studio for the annual Whitney Art Party, this year sponsored by
Theory and Saks Fifth Avenues. Among the attractions were a well-stocked
central bar; a silent auction filled with works by Max Snow, Lorna
Williams and their like, and bewitching (or confounding, depending on
your perspective) performances by Iona Rozeal Brown and Kalup Linzy, in
collaboration with Kreemart. Arriving just in time for the latter was
one of the event’s honorary chairs, Olivier Theyskens, who brought along
Kate Bosworth as his plus one (or plus two? Her beau Michael Polish
stood aside to let them do their interview thing).
“He picked me up and said, ‘Let’s go. Let’s have some fun,’” said
Bosworth of Theyskens. “He’s the perfect date.”
