New York – On Saturday night, Alexander Wang threw an exclusive fashion week after-party at the Emigrant Bank Building in Manhattan.
Notable guests included Solange Knowles, Jenna Lyons, Jared Leto, Gerard Butler, Justin Theroux, Alex Wang, Karlie Kloss, Kate Bosworth, Michael Polish, Waris Ahluwalia and Russell Simmons.
Guests enjoyed specialty Belvedere Vodka cocktails served through old-fashioned bank teller cages. There were concrete safes speckled throughout the venue filled with various goodies for guests to “rob.” The Belvedere safe was stocked with mini bottles of Belvedere Bloody Mary (for folks to enjoy the next morning of course!)
Solange Knowles was dropping it to the floor during “Get Low” by Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys and singing along at the bar. Michael Polish and Kate Bosworth were kissing and kept to themselves.
The performance by Die Antwoord was outrageous – the lead singer threw water on everyone yelling at the crowd to “wake the fuck up” and then proceeded to crowd surf at the end of the performance.
Busta Rhymes did a surprise performance and the crowd went crazy.
Karlie Kloss and Alex Wang were dancing together, and Alex was getting very loud and playfully yelling at everyone not to act “too cool” to dance and get crazy. During the song “Arab Money,” his friend hoisted him up on his shoulders and Alex was pumping the crowd up, teaching them the “Arab Money” dance.
After Busta’s performance, Alex went on stage and Busta had everyone raise their glasses and toast Alex’s talent. Alex told everyone to go to the bar and get some Belvedere, and added that he better not see an empty drink in anyone’s hand! Following the toast, Busta sprayed the crowd with champagne and closed with a mashup of his hits “Jump Jump” and “Pass the Courvoisier.” Models were soaking wet and still smiling and dancing away.
