(NEW YORK) Remember that wacky dream you had last night that you spotted Iman, Giancarlo Giammetti, and Karlie Kloss at Hogs & Heifers? That actually happened. Derek Blasberg brought his massive list of boldfaced names to the legendary MePa dive bar last night to toast his clever collaboration with Paperless Post. What's that all about? "I used to be a stationery snob," Blasberg told The Daily. "In fact, I wrote a book, Very Classy, that among other things trumpeted the handwritten note as the ultimate calling card of a lady. But then I started using Paperless Post, and I was hooked. It's quick, easy, links to my calendar, you can see when they're opened and keep track of RSVPs. So I figured, eh, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em." So, how did the collab turn out? "They're funny, irreverent greetings and invitations. I still think some things absolutely should be handwritten, like love notes, wedding invites and the like, but my line is fun and festive." As for the choice of Hogs & Heifers to round up his troops for some Veuve Clicquot and hot wings by Hooters? "You can take the boy of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy!" Blasberg explained. "I'm from Missouri, and I do love a little boot stompin'. Plus, I know a lot of my friends wanted to come into Hogs & Heifers, and were just looking for an excuse."

Coming out to support their buddy and keeping their bras on in the process? Karlie Kloss (who posed for pics outside of the bar with Marjorie Gubelmann's adorable son, Cyrus), Courtney Love, André Balazs, Julia Restoin RoitfeldGenevieve Jones, Amy Sacco, Scott Currie, Adam Glassman, Mickey Boardman, Lily Aldridge, Cynthia Rowley, Fiona Byrne, Cory Bond, RJ King, Peggy Siegal, Alexa Chung, John Jannuzzi, and Dree Hemingway,  to name a few.  "I love New York," the man of the hour told us. "Only in this town can I get that varied of a group of people in a bar where women wearing bandanas as tops dance on a bar." Exactly.
