    We're not one of the 28 million of those who shoplift, but at last Thursday's annual RxArt party sponsored by Chanel Beauté, it was hard not to sneak a Chanel logo-ed marker (or three) into our skinny tuxedo pants. And, apparently, we weren't alone—we spotted the telltale bulges popping up all over the quilted and tweed-ed out high-fashion guest list at the charity's 11th anniversary event. If you weren't in an illicit mood, you could use said markers to put your, err, mark on a giant Rob Pruitt Zebra mural—the same image used on RxArt's coloring book (given to children in participating hospitals)—which was inspired by shades from the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick. Among those getting back to their inner child included four of Karl's Les Fideles, the event's co-hosts Jen Brill, Poppy Delevigne, Caroline Sieber, and Vanessa Traina, all of whom put their own signature spin on the double-C's. Brand ambassadors aside, international muses were as much in abundance as the black-and-white Chanel napkins; Lauren Santo Domingo, Zani Gugelman, and Aurel Schmidt bared nipples, safety pins, and, yes, Converses (in no particular order), while browsing a competitive contemporary art auction, the proceeds of which benefit RxArt's mission of placing original fine art in patient, procedure, and examination rooms of healthcare facilities. And no, we didn't try and take that rug.
