Ken's Wear

Martin Marks
Last night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America teamed up with Christie's to play host to Ken: The Ultimate Dream Date, a menswear-meets-art exhibition of Barbie's main squeeze, on the occasion of his 50th birthday. In a gallery featuring highlights from the auction house's post-war and contemporary art sale, Paul Sevigny manned the DJ booth, while a tableau vivant of Ken dolls stood on platforms, dressed in the fineries of some of the finest menswear designers in town, including Billy Reid, Michael Bastian, Simon Spurr, Nicholas K, Robert Geller and Yigal Azrouël.
 
Among those celebrating this night of cocktails and cupcakes and Kens were CFDA's Steven Kolb and Fern Mallis, Yigal Azrouël, Simon Spurr, Madeline Weeks, Ainsley Earhart, writer Anisha Lakshahani, Peter Davis, Andreas Huber and Christian Langbein.
