Photos From Around New York: December 8, 2010 (PHOTOS)

New Yorkers chose interesting ensembles last night. From Michael Stipe's panda hat (and nametag?) to James Franco's sleeveless tuxedo shirt at Rob Pruitt's 2010 Art Awards, it is clear that being original is part of what makes the NY social scene unique.

At the opening of the new 57th Street Dior Boutique, Peter Marino wore leather head to toe and Grace Coddington's hair was everywhere per usual. Designer Vera Wang was spotted at the Knicks game wearing a slouchy hat and John Lennon fans were fully decked out at the many memorials happening around town.

Check out photos from everything you might have missed:
