PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.
It was steamy and chic at last night's opening hosted by Andre Balazs and Andre Saraiva, of Le Bain, the all-black bar/mini swimming pool and AstroTurfed roof top of The Standard Hotel. Like a yin-yang to the swankier, fancier Boom Boom Room (right next door) Le Bain is young and fun and feels like a hipster-packed Euro disco. There were so many hot boys and girls, gay and straight, it was like a casting call for chic cuties. If Helmut Newton were alive, he'd be shooting the naked chicks splashing in the pool every night. Who did I not see last night is the question. The list: James Franco, Terence Koh, Justin Theroux (toting his camera), Terry Richardson, Rachel Zoe, Tom Sachs, Dan Colen, Genevieve Jones, Bonnie Morrison, Patrick McMullan, Liam McMullan, Eugenia Gonzalez Ruiz-Olloqui, Lorenzo Martone, Serenah Nikkhah, Winston Lapham and Hayley Bloomingdale, Becka Diamond, Yale Breslin, Alessandra Balazs, Waris Ahluwalia, Annabelle Dexter-Jones,Tara Subkoff, Darrell Hartman and Hannah Bronfman. And that's just off the top of my slightly tired head. Alexandra Richards DJ-ed and Le Bain Up (the roof top) will be open every day from 12pm-12am (serving sandwiches and drinks) and the divine disco downstairs will stay open until 4am. The Standard NYC has re-booted nightlife once again. Want to see who looked hot last night? Check out this gorgeous black and white photo gallery by the multi-talented, super-sexy Saraiva. Cheers!
