For many guests Tuesday night, the Museum of the City of New York's Versace-sponsored Winter Ball was like the first day back to school after a break.

"Everyone's so dressed up," observed Yigal Azrouël, who had just Returned from surfing in Costa Rica. "I can't remember the last time I was at a black tie."

"I just got back from Paris an hour ago," chimed in a slightly jet-lagged Brian Reyes.

Marjorie Gubelmann, Debbie Bancroft, Patricia Duff, Serena Boardman, Helen Schifter and Becca Cason Thrash milled around an outside tent during cocktails, navigating long trains and dipping necklines.

"I'm totally taped in. I have extra tape in my bag," said Heather Mnuchin of her plunging Versace number.

During dinner, museum regulars held down the fort at long tables in the first floor gallery, while upstairs a younger crowd, including Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, Amanda Brooks and designer Prabal Gurung chair-hopped and snuck cigarette breaks outside.

"I feel like I'm at the kids' table," joked one guest.
