As the New York collections ended Friday, the fashion pack drew a collective sigh of relief--and then stepped out en masse to celebrate. Although police were trying to keep the crowd in the Gertrude Pavilion at a legal limit, thousands of revelers swarmed into the tent, creating an almost frightening throng that grooved and swayed to the music well into Saturday morning. Cynthia Rowley and Victor Alfaro were among those in the crowd, but grabbing the most attention, as he had all week, was Mickey Rourke. With a crew of fans around him, Rourke was all smiles and hugs. But his disposition changed quickly when someone up in the V.I.P. area threw out a disparaging comment. That's when Rourke's friends convinced Mr. Volatile it was time to go. The crowd was a lot smaller and more composed downtown at Tunnel, where designers, models and editors gathered for the Venus of Fashion awards. The event, held at Les Bains in Paris at the close of the ready-to-wear shows there, made its New York debut Friday night. Marc Jacobs was named best designer and Linda Evangelista received the crown for best model. But it was Kristen McMenamy, who everyone said was the biggest cut-up backstage all week, who was the life of the party. Dressed in a bustier and sheer negligee, she hopped from table to table during dinner, still talking about renaming herself "Dorothy Donahue." "It's easier," McMenamy said. "People call out 'Kris' or 'Kristy,' I don't know who they're calling. Besides, it's all an illusion anyway. I mean, I don't look like this when I wake up in the morning."

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory. She quickly refocused her energy to more personal projects, which led to the completion of “Mr. Roosevelt.” Read the rest of WWD’s interview with the “Master of None” actress on WWD.com #wwdeye (📷: @jilliansollazzo)
