Scenes from All the Best New York City Halloween Parties Last Night

Even though Halloween was only last night, we feel like the holiday's been going on Hanukkah-style, with approximately eight days of partying, costuming, and sanctioned licentiousness. After tireless chronicling New York's Halloween scene, it only made sense that we'd haul our asses out the door and swing by a party or two. There was no want for options last night, from fancy schmancy hotel bashes to grungier warehouse raves -- though most of the action seemed to be clustered in the Chelsea and Meatpacking areas.

V Magazine teamed up with the Boom Boom Room to host a "Mirror Mirror"/Snow White-themed fête, attracting glamour pusses like V's Stephen Gan (dressed as a football player), artist José Parla (who came as a panda), Marc Jacobs (dressed in camouflage), Vanessa Hudgens, Bryanboy (in costume as Anna Wintour), the Restoin Roitfeld siblings, and models like "Blurred Lines" sensation Emily Ratajkowski (Cruella DeVille), Lindsey Wixson and Dree Hemingway (skeleton). With such a fashionplate crowd, the scene turned meta at times, with loads of Karl Lagerfelds, Anna Wintours and other fashion insider costumes prancing around the club. At one point we saw a striking woman in a black ballgown with a very recognizable black-and-white hairdo -- we weren't totally sure if that was Daphne Guinness or a reveler in costume as Daphne Guinness. It was Daphne, in fact. Lady Bunny worked the crowd into a frenzy, playing everything from old-school disco to '90s hip-hop jams.

Elsewhere, models, brand consultants, art directors and other downtown party types congregated at Pamela Love and Mara Hoffman's party at the Jane, Travis Bass and Tommy Saleh's fiesta at Pravda , a Halloween night Tiesto DJ set at the newly-opened Tao, a party at Gramercy Hotel's Rose Bar and Heidi Klum's famous Halloween party, held this year at Marquee. (Heidi, who not for nothing has become known as the "Queen of Halloween," showed up this year dressed as an elderly woman.) One of the most popular parties turned out to be inside a Chelsea warehouse or "Garage," hosted by Westway's Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte. Fueled by cocktails and tacos from two Tacombi trucks parked inside the massive space, costumed kids danced to hip-hop and trap 'til the witching hour. Photos from all the 'spooky, scary' mayhem, below.
