Ray Kelly

As New York City's top-ranking cop, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has spearheaded a litany of NYPD initiatives, including his unwavering support of stop-and-frisk practices and being a huge fan of spying on innocent Muslims.

Regardless of your stances on the NYPD's controversial programs, you've got to admit, overseeing the largest municipal force in the country is a tough gig. But don't feel too bad! Kelly is known to find relief through his affinity for high-end fashion, sporting Charvet ties almost exclusively and shopping at Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Kelly also likes a good party. Whether it's the Tribeca Film Festival or a Graydon Carter shindig, the 70-year old police commissioner can be regularly spotted taking a respite from hard crime shmoozing with the likes of Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lopez, Anna Wintour, and many more of the city's fabulous one-percent.

So here's to you Ray Kelly! We've personally curated your best party animal moments to reminisce over. Photos courtesy of PatrickMcMullan.com
