Whether art collector, socialite or music fan, the city’s social creatures had an array of splashy events to choose from Tuesday night. More than 800 uptowners, decked in their razzle-dazzle best, glided into the Museum of the City of New York’s Twenties-themed winter ball, sponsored by Chanel. Guests like Tara Rockefeller, Jill Roosevelt, Samantha Boardman and Karen Groos sailed up the grand staircase for the benefit’s first seated dinner on the mezzanine.

“I’m the oldest man in the room,” declared Arie Kopelman, glancing at the surrounding bead-and-feathered junior jet set.

Beforehand, several of the revelers, including Bettina Zilkha, dropped into the Gucci store on Madison Avenue where Ashley Hicks signed copies of his new book about his late father, “David Hicks: Designer.”

“I think we are definitely having a David Hicks revival,” said Hicks.

“Where better to have a moment than at Gucci?” enthused Zilkha.

Meanwhile, the artsy types squeezed into the TriBeCa Grand where Fischerspooner threw a bash to celebrate the U.S. release of their CD #1 and the accompanying DVD #1. But instead of the Cirque de Soleil antics Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner are known for onstage, they kept things to a mellow, albeit packed, roar. Merry-makers included Hope Atherton and a posse of designers in wacky, homemade fare.

The rest of the city’s art crowd headed to the Eyebeam gallery in Chelsea for a dinner to benefit Rhizome.org, an online arts organization. Yoko Ono attended as did Yvonne Force, who was having her own Fischerspooner moment. Earlier in the week, she went on stage with the group to perform one of the new album’s songs.

“It’s the CD’s hidden track,” said Force, who does the number with photographer Sandra Hamburg. “The lyrics are pretty foul. It’s about liberated women. We wrote it when we were both single.”
