DuPont's friends, including Aby Rosen, Larry Gagosian, Aerin Lauder and Bob Colacello arrived for dinner out of loyalty to the couple, one presumes, while a younger crowd invaded the Young Fellows of the Frick Collection ball for a little elbow-rubbing and an excuse to wear a feathered mask. Guests such as Lauren Remington Platt, Poppy Delevingne and Alexia Kondylis took the evening's Un Ballo in Maschera theme to extraordinary heights (in the case of one reveler, a full-plumed affair worthy of a Mardi Gras parade float).
"I feel so weak with my Batman mask," said Marina Rust Connor, dressed in a design by the night's sponsor, Elie Saab, as she admired a gold floral creation on one girl. But it wasn't getting much play time anyway. "I have to leave soon and go cook dinner for my husband. He's watching 'Celebrity Apprentice,'" she continued (he missed his celebrity moment at the ball — the show's star, Ivanka Trump, was making the rounds in a diaphanous white gown).
After a few twirls on the dance floor, the chairs and their friends headed over to a model apartment at 807 Park Avenue for a midnight breakfast, noshing on scrambled eggs, mini bagels and Moët & Chandon.
The previous night, style-obsessed teens got their fashion fix at the fete Teen Vogue and Burberry hosted for the launch of the label's perfume, "The Beat," at its SoHo outpost. The crowd was carded at the door and given patent leather Burberry wristbands to denote drinking age status. Daisy Lowe (daughter of Gavin Rossdale), Ellie Monahan (Katie Couric's kid), Emily McEnroe (spawn of John McEnroe and Tatum O'Neal) and Emma Roberts (niece of Julia) joined a 36-year-old Christopher Bailey, who for his part seemed to be holding his own amid the young crowd. "I don't think of myself as that old, honestly," the designer said.
