MASKED BALL: A month after the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala, the Temple of Dendur played host to yet another black-tie soiree that celebrated the cocktail of art-meets-fashion. On Tuesday night, Vacheron Constantin launched the final set of its Métiers d’Art Les Masques collection, which features reproductions of antique masks originating from Indonesia, China, Mexico and Gabon. After taking a tour of the new African and Oceanic art exhibit, sponsored by the watchmaker and spotlighting some of those original masks, guests including Lela Rose, Rachel Roy, Muffie Potter Aston, Olivia Chantecaille and Ren Grady, Pepe Fanjul, Celerie Kemble and Boykin Curry took in a dinner and tribal dance show by Julliard performers. The draw for the serious watch collectors on hand, however, were the watches themselves; this was the first — and only — time the whole three-set collection will be presented together. Others, Rose joked, came for the possibility of a Vacheron Constantin timepiece giveaway.
