MET FRIENDS: Friends of the Met’s only West Coast members, Cameron Silver and Susan Casden, hosted a dinner for Harold Koda and Kohle Yohannan Thursday night at Bazaar restaurant in Beverly Hills’ SLS Hotel, drawing Los Angeles designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Monique Lhuillier, Liseanne Frankfurt, Brigette Romanek and Jenni Kayne, plus Marisa Tomei, Katie Holmes (in a navy suit of her own design) and her stylist, Jeanne Yang. The purpose of the dinner was ostensibly to celebrate the “Model as Muse” exhibition, but Koda was on the lookout for new recruits. “The good thing about this crowd is that you could all be on the junior committee,” he laughed. The same couldn’t be said for the original model as muse, Peggy Moffitt, who missed the gala but was on hand to sign copies of the companion coffee-table book containing the iconic topless Rudi Gernreich swimsuit photograph shot by her late husband, William Claxton. “It’s both sweet and horrifying” she joked of the young guests queued up for her autograph.
