On Tuesday evening, the world’s most iconic man in fashion, Karl Lagerfeld, was honored at an intimate dinner hosted by V Magazine in partnership with Perrier-Jouët Champagne and The Sexton Irish Whiskey at New York City’s Boom Boom Room.
The star-studded room was filled with guests and icons in their own right, including Naomi Campbell, Mario Testino, Andre Leon-Talley, Baz Luhrmann, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, Derek Blasberg, Kris Jenner, Pat McGrath, among many others. The crowd cheered on as Mariah Carey serenaded the room with a selection of her greatest hits, and closed the set by dedicating Hero to longtime friend, Karl Lagerfeld.
Throughout the night guests enjoyed cocktails from The Sexton – whose own skeleton emblem closely resembles that of the Bradley Theodore painting of Lagerfeld – as they mingled around the venue’s iconic tree bar.
V Magazine Editor in Chief Stephen Gan closed the evening with a toast to Karl raising a glass of Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé in his honor.
