If walls could talk, we find it difficult to imagine what the graffiti-ed concrete slabs of hot-spot Good Units could possibly say about last night. Bad Boy West Coast fashion designer Jeremy Scott played hostess with the mostess to a slew of conventionally challenged cross-dressers that left us contemplating if we were too conservatively dressed (and trust, that doesn't happen often!). With Kelly Cutrone managing the event (she of Kell On Earth fame), you know there were cameras everywhere and the boys and girls were more than happy to mug for the bright lights. We saw costumes that would make Gaga blanch— goth angel wings, Little Bo-Peep dresses, and crazy caftans. We stayed in the hopes that the rumor of Rihanna performing would be true, sadly it turned out to be Amanda Blank (no offense to Blank fans, but c'mon, it's Ri!). Exhausted by our clear lack of sartorial chutzpah, we grabbed a couple Jeremy Scott ribbed condoms and took our leave.
And remember, we told you about Good Units here first! Here's what to do when you go:
Your drink: The Belvedere Grapefruit Margarita! Salty and sour, it's weird in a really good way. And you know Belvie's our vodka of choice...
Your look: Double O-C. It's dark down there so you'll want to stand out.
Your plan: Go a bit early (11-ish) to the "library," which is on the ground level directly to the left of the bar. Snag a seat on the '80s couch before anyone else does and you're set!
Good Units, Hudson Hotel, 353 West 57th Street
