Tally Ho: For a few hours on Friday night, the gilded leather, fishnet and patent stilettoes commingling outside Suite Sixteen began to make Eighth Avenue feel a lot more like Eleventh. All the adventures in the skin trade were happening as a result of Lara Shriftman and Chris Heinz’s “pimps and ho’s”-themed birthday party at the new boite.
Heinz, who spent much of the night bobbing on the makeshift stage with the sisters Hilton, wore a tight Hustler T-shirt, black pleather pants and a gold nameplate necklace that read “Pimp Daddy;” Shriftman, in head-to-toe Celine, was strictly high class: “the real professional, the one who’s being taken care of,” she explained. Guests included Donovan Leitch, Zoe Cassavetes, Rena Sindi, Pia Getty, Peta Wilson, Liev Schreiber, Damon Dash and Aaliyah, Shoshanna Lonstein, Charlotte and Samantha Ronson, Casey Johnson, Alex von Furstenberg and Anh Duong.
Take heart: Plum Sykes and Damian Loeb are engaged, and rumor has it that Samantha Kluge and Richie Birkenhead — who recently separated — are back together.
