(NEW YORK) “Let’s stay focused here,” said Wyclef Jean, who, by 11:30, had taken on the role of DJ at Brian Reyes’ afterparty at 1Oak Thursday night. “Raise your bottles, raise your glasses to Brian! If you don’t have a bottle, take off your motherfrickin’ shoe!” Sure, Elle party girl Anne Slowey had already left for the night, but the party was in no way over. Wyclef protégé Niia had performed (in a look from Reyes, natch), Rachel Bilson was holding court at a table, and Reyes himself was enjoying his well-deserved moment of glory, mingling and asking partygoers “Where’s your drink?”

“It was a wonderful moment,” said Reyes of his show. “It all came together.” And it was, of course, celebrated properly, with fans of the designer’s dancing to Fugees hits “Ready or Not” and “Staying Alive.” Benicio del Toro may have rolled up around 12:30, but there was no doubt about it: Brian was the man of the night.
