I was bicycling uptown yesterday past the Whitney and saw the now obligatory roped-off tented entrance that signifies PARTY! As my invitation must have been lost in the mail I didn't think too much about it. And then these party pictures popped up on the internet.
It turns out it was the Whitney Art Museum Gala (sponsored by Versace), but in spite of the good weather, doesn't it look like everyone wished they were at home watching Game 3 of the Yanks-Angels? While the pictures were uncredited on Fashionologie this is clearly not a photographer you want to invite to cover your next event.
So while I have never done a Hall of Shame, I think that photographically this deserves it.
One last piece of advice for next year, not only should the Whitney have someone standing by to say "Cheese!", a big plate of gooey Brie with salami and crackers might not be a bad idea for most of the guests!
