FOR THE BOYS: Thursday night was all glitz and glam as The Boys’ Club of New York hosted their 65th annual Fall Gala at the Pierre Hotel in Manhattan. Do-gooders Veronica Swanson Beard, Frederic Fekkai, Jennifer Creel, Arriana Boardman and Jamee Gregory among them, all came out to mingle and support the organization. During cocktail hour, guests eyed scantily-clad models painted as maple trees and ornate flowers perched on elevated platforms above the crowd: a sea of lace, chiffon, and tulle swishing about below. “Good parties start right from the get-go,” said Gregory. “And when you come in tonight and there’s great music and semi-naked girls [painted] as trees, I know everyone, especially the men, are going to have a really good time.” The party continued with Greek designer Celia Kritharioti presenting her collection of ethereal and romantic gowns during dinner. Models sashayed around the mirrored dining area and metallic gold dance floor while diners scanned the wares.
