(NEW YORK) By midnight last night, the awards had been given, cases of champagne had been abused, and even Calvin Klein’s gorgeous party on the High Line was slowly winding down--but the after-after fête, hosted by Opening Ceremony and Black Frame, was just heating up. Party-hoppers like Tim Hamilton, Justin Giunta, Julie Gilhart (sporting seriously sexy thigh-high stockings!), Andy Samberg, Rodarte date Kirsten Dunst, Jessica Stam, Daphne Guinness, Richard Chai, Thakoon Panichgul and more headed just a few blocks downtown to The Jane to christen the brand-new Ballroom along with hosts Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Alexander Wang, and Scott Sternberg--winners, all.

Though the bar was far from open (in both the population and the payment sense--even CFDA honcho Steven Kolb was kept waiting for quite some time), the revelry kept flowing…along with more and more guests into a space decidedly smaller than the High Line. A veritable receiving line snaked its way up to one half of Team Rodarte for plenty of deserved congratulations. “It took a while to process!” said Laura, whose sister Kate had disappeared into the crowd. “When they started to call Kate’s name, it was like everything was on a 30-second loop.”

It may have been past little Tallulah Willis’ bedtime (the “guest” of Bazaar is only 15, after all), but the daughter of Bruce and Demi made it from the High Line to The Jane--complete with a costume change between stops. Daphne Guinness stuck close to her Proenza boys all night, and Yigal Azrouël stopped in wearing pants that looked suspiciously like chaps. Swarovski Womenswear victor Alex Wang, having spent most of his night celebrating at Calvin, arrived enfin with a Wang-clad Dree Hemingway, and the party carried on into the wee hours…a perfect cap for a triumphant evening.
