CURTAIN RAISER: The New York City fall social circuit continued apace on Monday at the Metropolitan Opera’s opening night gala. Cochairs Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg were both in attendance, as were a host of well-dressed opera-files including Ari Graynor, Courtney Love, Cheyenne Jackson, Zac Posen, Crystal Renn, Jeisa Chiminazzo and Sia.
