Celebrating his 30th year in fashion, Michael Kors had the paparazzi in a tailspin under the tents.

A maelstrom of activity brought Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones to their seats where their security protected the stars from flash bulbs. Debra Messing leisurely reapplied her makeup before agreeing to be photographed.

At 3.1 Phillip Lim, Salman Rushdie rubbed shoulders with designer Richard Chai.

Working on a memoir about his fatwa days, the celebrated author seemed blissed-out to be in public and taking in the boisterous scene.

The Cooper-Hewitt Museum held a gala opening for “Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels.”

Although Cate Blanchett showed up fashionably late, Naomi Campbell and her blood diamond were nowhere to be seen.

Inside the exhibition, architect Richard Meier was checking out Eva Perón’s “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” baubles.
