The runway spectacle was pretty cool too. Alternative tees have definitely transcended the styles of that other "Apparel" company. With the Walkmen turning in a melodic, low-key live set near the end of the eve, this was hands-down our fave L.A. Fashion Week event. We also attended Concept FW down the street earlier and though we liked the creative, DIY spirit (especially the installations), that one needs a few more seasons to work out the kinks.
More carny fun was had at Perez Hilton's Carn-Evil birthday party at Paramount Studios Saturday night. This year was especially epic, particularly if you were a gay man (or a gay man trapped in a girl's body, like Nightranger). There were tons of hot-bodied boys in their skivvies, Chi Chi LaRue and RuPaul shaking all night on the dance floor, and a show-stopping set by Liza Minnelli (singing "Cabaret" and "New York, New York"). Leona Lewis and Eve rocked the stage as well, while Katy Perry sang "Happy Birthday" while atop a live elephant.
The guy may have a lot of naysayers (especially the celebs he bags on in his blog) but, astoundingly, they still come out for him every year, whether it be at South By Southwest or his annual b-day bash. Even his frequent target "Loopy" Lohan was there, and after a dress change (?) mid-party, we hear she ended up accosting the turntables. It was a wild bash, but after Liza, we opted to end the night with more Le Chic-y freaks (and real DJs) at another milestone mash: Full Frontal Disco's anniversary. See pics from both parties on laweekly.com.
