WHERE THE BOYS MIGHT BE: Tuesday is shaping up to be a busy evening for fashion's night owls, with parties uptown, downtown and everywhere in between New York. But rather than throw a run-of-the-mill Champagne fete, Roger Vivier is taking the high road by hosting an exclusive preview of Christie's First Open sale at its Madison Avenue boutique. Works by Jeff Koons, Sol Lewitt, Andy Warhol and Richard Prince will grace the store's already art-heavy walls. The guest list is still being finalized, but early word says a lot of men have RSVP'd. Wealthy, art-buying men, one presumes. We're just saying.

FLASH FORWARD: On Tuesday evening, the highly visible Tom Ford will flip the spotlight onto artist Marilyn Minter, feting the publication of her new monograph with a party at his Madison Avenue store in Manhattan. Ford is more than just a casual fan: Minter shot print ads for his men's wear and eyewear lines in her signature iconoclastic style, which will appear in magazines throughout the fall. Expected to join Ford are André Balazs, Samantha Boardman and fellow artists Will Cotton and Hope Atherton. Also invited are some of Minter's big-name collectors, including Jerry Seinfeld, Stephanie Seymour and Peter Brant and Evelyn and Leonard Lauder.

Meanwhile, Parkett's latest issue, out now, features a Minter shoot of Pamela Anderson, a rare detour into the celebrity world for the artist.

BALENCIAGA BAGS LONDON?: Could Nicolas Ghesquière have found a home for his next Balenciaga boutique? According to sources, the Gucci Group-owned fashion house has signed a lease for a store on London's Mount Street, the genteel Mayfair street where Marc Jacobs opened his first British store in February. Aesop, the Sydney-based natural beauty brand, has also recently secured a store on the street. A Balenciaga store in London would add to stand-alone boutiques in Milan, which Ghesquière unveiled in June, Paris and New York. A spokesman for the brand confirmed that Balenciaga was planning to open a store in London, but declined to reveal its exact location.
