Last Night’s Party: Terry Richardson DJ’s, Dianna Agron Talks Fashion, and Zoe Saldana Likes ‘Anything That Takes Balls’
When Persol announced they’d be celebrating a second run of their “Persol Magnificent Obsessions” exhibition series–which honors classic film-making–at the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, we knew it’d be worth the schlep. (Particularly since we figured a party mixing film buffs, style market insiders, prosecco, and Terry Richardson as DJ was bound to be a hell of a excellent time.) So we got on the chartered bus and headed over the Triboro Bridge.
Lanky boys in plaid shirts mingled with Hollywood glam girls like Glee’s Dianna Agron and Zoe Saldana. Turns out Agron is a bit of a style know-it-all, wearing a very un-Glee-like Opening Ceremony ensemble. “If you appear at what it requires to go into these glasses, there are 32 steps involved—that is so much time and effort!” she mentioned of the Persol sunnies. “My mom sews, so from an infant on, I knew what it took to produce one thing and what that meant in terms of time and work. I quite much adore clothes and tried to find out how to sew too, but it was awful.”
Zoe Saldana, whose appreciation for fashion is well-documented, both on the red carpet and as the founder of MyFDB, mentioned, “I’m an artist and I like anything that takes creativity and balls.”
Immediately after an hour or so, a fire engine-red plaid shirt appeared, with two thumbs-up sprouting from its arms. Terry Richardson was in the house, prepared to take over spinning duties. Sadly for all those Kate Upton wannabes who had been ready to catdaddy, it soon became apparent that Uncle Terry is much better behind the lens than behind the turntable. No matter, although. There was still prosecco.
You can catch the exhibit featuring the work of Arianne Phillips, Hilary Swank, Alfred Hitchcock and a lot more, at the Museum of Moving Image via August 14.
