At Romera, the subterranean restaurant at the Dream Downtown Hotel on Thursday night, L’Wren Scott held a small dinner to unwind after her presentation earlier in the day. The designer was so unwound, in fact, that she was singing.

“Another season, another reason,” she lilted, “it sounds like a song….I have a very wonderful and supportive boyfriend. I have the most wonderful team that I’m very lucky to have. And I’m really glad that everybody was there to support me today. That’s what makes you the most happy.”

Said boyfriend, who happens to be Mick Jagger, was standing nearby. Earlier in the day, he had been taking videos of the presentation.

“My theme today was the dresses and the food,” Jagger explained. “I started on a moving dress and I ended on a still piece of food. Like a close up on a chip, a close up on the peppers, they were very bright colors. Or a close up on my guests next to me which were Gretchen Moll and Ellen Barkin.”

Jagger’s directorial efforts hadn’t stopped at the show. Upon arriving at the restaurant, he had asked a staffer to adjust the music.

“Well there wasn’t any music, basically,” he laughed, as guests including Barkin, Courtney Love and Wendi Murdoch filtered in. “And then when they put it on, it was very quiet piano music. So I’ve gotta get our own iPod.”

And what was on that iPod?

“I downloaded a really good...what’s it called?” Jagger said. “It’s called Black Joe and the somethings. It’s a kind of R&B record, but it’s new. It’s kind of like a mixture between a blues record and hip hop record and an old-fashioned R&B record. It’s called Black Joe and the somethings. I can’t remember what the somethings are.”

WWD promised to fact check it.

“Thank you,” Jagger laughed.

If you’re reading, Mick, it’s Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears.

Jagger might have found something a bit more at his volume level upstairs at the hotel’s first floor club, where Marc Jacobs was hosting its own after-show party. The affair stuck mostly to the friends-and-family guest list that Jacobs has gone with in recent seasons, though Sofia Coppola and Thomas Mars, Kim Gordon and Michael Pitt joined the designer, as did Dakota Fanning and Juergen Teller. The photographer and actress posed for pictures near a large print of the Oh, Lola fragrance campaign that Teller shot and Fanning appears in.

Lindsay Lohan, who apparently wasn’t on the guest list, arrived around 11 p.m., drawing a pack of curious onlookers to the boundaries of the club’s VIP section, which by then no longer counted Jacobs in its ranks. No one actually sitting in the blocked off corner seemed to have much interest in the starlet as she took a place on a couch off to the side. Lohan chatted up The Dream owner Vikram Chatwal for a bit, and then exited about as quickly as she’d appeared.
