Fifth Avenue during the day is a cacophony of clacking stiletto heels, endless car horns, and bellowing pitches for knockoff Louis Vuitton bags.

After hours, however, the thoroughfare turns into a thumping mix of Eighties tunes.

The social parade on Wednesday night started at Saks Fifth Avenue where guests arriving to a fete for Rachel Roy were greeted by the bass line from Tone-Loc’s “Wild Thing.” Roy, radiant in burgundy hues and some serious Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, graciously met with fans and friends. Nearby, the evening’s hostess, Iman, looked on with pride. “She’s one hell of a designer,” she beamed.

Further up the avenue, Versace held a bash with Save Venice and Chloë Sevigny threw a party at Bergdorf Goodman for her pals Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler. Not that she's planning on buying at retail. “I did buy some of their Target stuff,” Sevigny admitted. "To acquire more of the real thing I need to go to more sample sales.”
