    The Boom Boom Room is back! Well, kinda. Taking a page out of Prince's playbook, the late-night lounge at the Standard Hotel has been re-christened (the spot formerly known as) the Boom Boom Room, but the name-change did little to dampen last night's reopening, hosted by André Balazs.

Oh did we mention the mini Lord of the Rings reunion of Liv Tyler and Elijah Wood? Plus, just in time to perk up some especially enthusiastic party-goers, around 3 A.M. Kanye West gave an impromptu live performance on top of the bar. We hate to be cheesy, but, c'mon—that's really starting Fashion Week off with a....boom.

    Scroll through the slideshow to see every front row girl (and guy) ever—there's a surprise for you at the very end!
