IT‘S THE PLACE WHERE THEY MINGLE; INDOCHINE, NEW YORK’S FRENCH-VIETNAMESE BORDELLO THEMED RESTAURANT TURN CLUB. GO TO DINE FIRST AND STAY LATE TO PARTY WILD FOR DESSERT. SENSES TURNED TO MAGNETIC, ON THE ROCKS WITH ACTORS, ARTISTS, MODELS AND DIVAS OF ALL ANGLES.
The finest slews of guests have filed through this prolific place: Andy Warhol, 90s supermodels Christy, Naomi and Linda, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Madonna. The venue opened doors in ‘84 and the celebrity list hasn’t stopped since. The almighty raison d’être of all legendary venues is to bring fabulousness together under one roof for one night, which sunrise breaks but seductive stories from Diva’s Club linger for a while...
A prime Indochine guest, Blumarine called in Warhol’s original muse Baby Jane Holzer to the runway in a sleek number to catch the right amount of glisten from the club’s discreet low lit corners. Emilio Pucci struck sheer electric with a lightning bolt that sent pure gold through his shift down to the white and black checkered dance floor. The golden bolts grazed thigh-high boots backed by Versace’s cut outs and slim siren-high slits. Sexy slashes loosened up at Balmain, where slinky suits tempted everything see through and flared lace catsuits came out to play. Alexandre Vauthier and Olivier Rousteing did up the ultimate party dresses. Frilled and tipped, a one shoulder number at Balmain showed off a disco-skinned sheen and took on Saint Laurent’s devious Sunset Strip minis. Roberto Cavalli fringe and fur will always reign with the divas. Belly button skimming V necks at Rodarte kept the glossy bar smoothly spiked. Lanvin went long in violet satin and the full length kept the girls nothing short of tempting. Full glittered Jimmy Choos, strapped Elie Saab stilettos, Versace clutches, Gucci and Anita Ko gems, topped off with Agent Provocateur’s full body jewels, an accessory that knows when to keep glittering or be shaken off. Diva’s Club cachet goes hand in hand with hedonistic fun. Seize it! This season is pure escapism, unabashed.
