Selfie stick in hand, on Tuesday night, Karlie Kloss headed to the Whitney Museum for dinner with the art crowd, where she and fellow fashion names like Brandon Maxwell were treated to an energetic Fischerspooner performance in full “riot drag.” The real festivities, though, didn’t start until later, when the gathering headed to the museum’s lobby for the pounding round of DJ sets by Questlove, Lion Babe, and Mia Moretti for the institution’s annual Art Party. And while names like Victor Cruz may have cleared out at that point, others — Maurizio Cattelan, Chuck Close, and Common among them — seemed more than happy to mingle with the crowd and the performance artist MPA’s crew of selectively clad models.
