Purple Magazine's Sweaty Standard Soiree

We're glad we wore our deodorant on Saturday, such was the sweat factor at The Standard Hotel, where Purple Magazine double teamed it with Zac Posen for one of Fashion Week's most perspiration-inducing parties. Having enjoyed another "P" before in the form of Prabal Gurung's dance-off, our Belvedere soaked brains (and spilled-on pant leg) needed a minute to adjust to a crush of front-row girls and guys spilling across both the Boom Boom Room and Le Bain. Everywhere you looked Olivier Zahm was posing for pictures, cigarette in one hand, bottle of vodka in another, while Jared Leto's poncho never quite left our field of vision. Add a leather-daddied up Cator Sparks and a gyrating Paz de la Huerta, and raunchy glam had officially arrived. We managed to stay relatively dry by the pool table, where Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" lyrics suddenly seemed to make a lot more sense.
