Last night at the New Museum's private opening of "George Condo Mental States," the American artist perhaps most widely known for painting the explicit sexual cover image on Kanye West's album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy brought in the stars from fashion and Hollywood to make this the hottest party of the night. And we've got photographic proof.
Marc Jacobs had just flown in from Paris, where he was overloaded with Men's Fashion Week. Lorenzo Martone, Jacobs's ex, kept close to the designer most of the night, but the two insisted they are just friends at this point. Luckily Marc Jacobs, unlike the injured Donna Karan and the ski-accident prone Diane von Furstenberg, was in tip-top social shape.
Kanye West, who wore two gold medallions around his neck and a fur-lapelled pea coat kept it low key and made polite chatter with Jacobs.
