Others kept their well-planned costumes intact. Sofia Coppola admitted she wasn't a fan of Westerns, but nevertheless came as one little Indian in a white outfit she borrowed from pal Anna Sui's archives. Sui, meanwhile, was her dark counterpart in a black cowgirl getup. "It's right off my runway," she exclaimed.
Naomi Campbell revealed a fringe Roberto Cavalli minidress underneath her full-length vintage fur. "I'm Pocahontas and it's so much fun," she cried.
Marc Jacobs staffers had taken line-dancing lessons for the night and had no problem competing with the party's professional dancers and lassoers. Revelers writhed in various positions on the bucking bronco or nibbled on corn bread, while the Chrome Hearts band played Old Western tunes to the delight of gyrating cowboys in G-strings and Indian go-go dancers on platforms. But the night's real stars were the costumes. The award for the best dressed went to Joseph Carter and Eric Pettigrew, who played out deceased hillbillies. Others came as tepees, livestock, bandits, walking "Wanted" posters, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, drag queens, midget Elvises and, bizarrely, there were even two Karl Lagerfeld wannabes.
