Chic Report: A theatrical backdrop of chairs stacked atop one another ("It's couture chaos. Exactly what it's like when you come out of a Lacroix show in Paris," said Michael Roberts of the set) greeted guests at Zac Posen Thursday night, where boudoir met cabaret as the wunderkind designer presented a selection of sequined bib dresses and goddess gowns--"This makes me feel like a princess," quipped Tanya D. of her tattered framboise and dove fairytale gown. Iridescent cloqué jackets and silk twill and heather wool suiting showed face but the collection was definitely focused on the exuberant evening wear. "Zac has always been ahead of his times. He was so spiritual and ethereal then and to be so young and so successful, he will endure for the decades forever,” gushed Thrash.
