50 Shades Of Turquoise At Fancy Party
The theme was "turquoise and white" at the dinner party for the Geoffrey Bradfield-designed apartment in the window of BoConcept on West 18th Street and we turned it out till we were blue in the face.

Or till we saw blue in the face.
I felt underwater, but strangely afloat, loving the chance to finally fit into someone's color scheme.
When I'm handed a theme memo, I go to town--or at least go to Chelsea--and this time I did it via the closest approximation of turquoise I could find in my closet, while punctuating it with whiteness in the form of the old Seinfeld shirt by way of Austin Powers' worst nightmare.
Here are Patrick McMullan's colorful photos to prove it.
June Haynes. Bradfield, Chiu-Ti I almost faded right into the turquoise couch. I said almost. I'd like to thank the academy... These guys can wear whatever color they like. Liliana Cavendish and the boys. This moment felt like an old Lauren Bacall stage musical had popped up in the showroom. BoConcept's Shaokao and Niki Cheng in several shades of grey and black. Happy birthday, Shaokao. Brown is a nice color too, but only when we're talking chocolate squares by chef Kevin Lasko.
