A veritable who's who of fashion and art showed up Tuesday night for the Tate's first "Artists Dinner," which was held at the Riverfront Terrace at the West Side Highway.

Diane von Furstenberg walked in with Barry Diller, Cindy Sherman arrived with David Byrne, there were enough models to fill the fashion glossies for at least a month, and Chuck Close and Robert Rauschenberg were hanging out by the cocktail area together in two very high tech wheel chairs, looking bemused by the whole thing. "When I was coming up, an art party was people throwing up on one another, and the idea of a supermodel being there was virtually inconceivable," said Close. "I'm not sure this has been a good development."

Others in the crowd included Calvin Klein, Frank Stella, Ed Ruscha, Aby and Samantha Rosen, and Valentino.
