We asked PAPER contributing editor and man-about-town Peter Davis for his top 10 party moments of 2012. Below, he tells us about his year in partying serious.
1. The Margiela for H&M extravaganza -- I not only scored a faux fur coat I have yet to wear (among three gigantic bags of other stuff), but I also spotted Stella Tennant in her knickers trying on disco ball tights. And they had champagne, supermodels and movie stars. What more could one want at a party?
6. Having dinner with Spike Lee and his gorgeous wife Tanya. I was right across from Spike and he told me all about the scene in Summer of Sam where John Leguizamo and Mina Sorvino leave Studio 54 and Plato's Retreat and drop the F bomb like 100 times.
7. More starfucking: meeting Stephen Colbert, another hero, at Brooks Brothers, where he hosted his book party. I was speechless, which is rare as I usually can't shut up, so I let him do the talking and I did the laughing.
8. Any night where I see Michelle Violy Harper who's daredevil style always is mega eye-candy, smart and chic. And Michelle is one of the most interesting and sweetest of all my NYC glam gal pals.
