Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Has Carine, Jean Paul, and Mary-Kate in His Corner

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld gathered his always interesting mix of fashion and art friends together in the Lower East Side last night to debut "The Martus Maw," an exhibition of sixteen mixed media pieces from the French artist Nicolas Pol. It was the fourth presentation from Feedback, the art firm Vladimir opened in 2008.

The space he chose was a former packing plant, and the meat hooks dangling from the ceiling presented an interesting counterpoint to the neon-accented pieces and the glam crowd sipping champagne to tunes from DJ Nick Cohen. The event was thrown in conjunction with RVCA's artist network, and fittingly, friend of the label Erin Wasson came out to rub shoulders with an otherwise Euro-heavy set that included Stavros Niarchos, Daphne Guiness, and Olympia Scarry.

Vladimir's mother Carine practically stole the show, however, when she arrived wearing head-to-toe lace and a black cape with Jean Paul Gaultier in tow. Once the preview wrapped up, a select few headed over for a meal at Vlad's favoritie restaurant, Indochine.

Party Photos: Interview Hosts a Made-Up Masquerade

Interview magazine took over the Meatpacking District's SL club to host a Russian-themed masquerade ball on Thursday night. An exclusive pre-party was held for a few lucky socialites, including host Fabiola Beracasa, who were treaded to makeovers from MAC and gold bracelets from Alex & Ani before the main event. Despite her lavish makeup, Fabiola was easy to spot in a buttoned-up crowd that included Keegan Singh, Kipton Cronkite, and Sophia Lamar. Scott Sartiano was also on hand, though he stayed occupied on the dance floor with his model companion Allie Rizzo.

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld Launches First Photography Exhibit

>> Last night marked the opening of Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld's Louis Vuitton-sponsored, curated exhibit of three photographers and close friends of his — PC Valmorbida (boyfriend of Theodora Richards), David Mushegain and Salim Langatta.  Both the party and after-party at Indochine (a Roitfeld favorite) were super crowded — the latter hit capacity and saw Carine Roitfeld dancing on the restaurant's banquettes.  Sister Julia, girlfriend Lily Donaldson, and godfather Mario Testino were all in attendance, as were a number of other fashion folk — Lara Stone, Erin Wasson, Gisele Bundchen.  And Carine was proud of her son's current career choice — according to Vladimir, it was his parents who pushed him to move to the US — "I don't know if he will do more shows or film, but when you try to produce things, it's a hard hard job, and I'm very proud of him.  I'll be very happy if he becomes successful."*image: source, source, filmmagic
