Immediately following Marc Jacobs’ runway show at the 69th Regiment Armory on Monday night, a decent portion of the crowd headed uptown to The Pierre hotel for the company’s now traditional friends-and-family party. Though it was a mostly low-key affair, a few famous faces stuck out in the crowd. Jared Leto and Terry Richardson made an early entrance and exit. Dakota Fanning shared a table with Jacobs and John Currin and Rachel Feinstein.


After dinner, The Kills, who are now riding pole position in the fashion week ubiquitors race, played a semisurprise set. They’ve done the downtown club thing twice this week, but The Pierre was a new look for their blues-trash shtick. Jacobs was dead center alongside Lorenzo Martone, watching on approvingly. Michael Pitt stood by himself in the back. Kim Gordon kept repositioning herself on the dance floor. A few partygoers glanced nervously at the room’s crystal chandeliers. Alison Mosshart, the duo’s lead singer, made a crack about the high school prom before her rendition of Patsy Cline’s “Crazy.”


“It’s awesome; seriously, it’s great,” said Lisa Airan, no stranger to the Upper East Side hotel’s more traditional party scene, of the party. This wasn’t quite a Meals on Wheels fund-raiser, was it? She nodded.
