While hostess Carey Mulligan couldn't make it (re-watching, we hope, Baz Luhrmann's deliciously addictive Gatsby trailer), plenty of young thespians, editors, and general girls-and-guys-about-town took advantage of Mother Nature's easy chill to experiment with color in a way that's got us clicking over to DVF's e-commerce site, like, five minutes ago. Vogue's Valerie Boster donned an electric lilac silk plunger, Lily Kwong neon-ified some Hermès orange, and Chelsea Leyland's patterned Diane frock made us think of sherbert on adderall (oh yeah, our own Kristian Laliberte went for a Seize Sur Vingt suit that could double as a chic traffic cone). Though we stayed for Chairlift's sweet set, the Acme after-hours do just wasn't happening — we had to go home and research tangerine bathing suits. Overnight delivery, obviously.
