(NEW YORK) Give Patricia Field two holidays to celebrate in one night—Valentine’s Day and her own birthday last evening—and expect a disco-themed spectacle with more glitter and skin than a Victoria’s Secret show. The kooky downtown denizen co-hosted the bash with PR maven Kelly Cutrone, and the absurdly decked-out crowd thronged Capitale, preening under pink lighting and fueled by the open bars until the wee hours. There was a multi-category costume contest judged by the likes of The Blondes, after all! At midnight, Field celebrated her birthday dressed in a sparkly riff on aviator garb, complete with a sequined red hooded getup and crazy eyegear. As for the strangest gift the exuberant host has ever received? “I don’t think in terms of ‘weird,’” Field exclaimed. Michael Musto got dolled up in vest and a bow-shaped chapeau by a friend moments after walking in. “Patrick McDonald admired it, so I know it must be pretty cool,” Musto said. A fashion “do,” according to the Dandy himself! McDonald, decked in vintage Romeo Gigli and Paul Smith, was eager to gush over his favorite Pat memory from over the years. “I’ve known Pat for over thirty years. I was in a fashion show of hers in 1979. Agreat memory was Thanksgiving one year in her apartment down on 8th street. It was a fantastic time.” Over on planet Kell, the People’s Rev powerhouse bounced around in work-play mode, her long money print Jeremy Scott scarf billowing as she schmoozed with guests in bejeweled bodysuits, tiers of tulle petticoats, and pasties sans much else. “I’m too old to get stressed,” Cutrone scoffed at the notion of worrying about any particular shows or soirees she’s planning this week.
