Instead of jello shots or bumper cars, this year's Alexander Wang after-party unfolded at the Emigrant Bank Building across from City Hall in downtown Manhattan last night. State law likely mandated the metal detectors, probably one of the first and last times you'll see that at a fashion party. But once inside, the scene was straight out of the Ben Affleck classic, The Town, complete with Wang himself arriving dressed as a bank robbing nun (spooking several attendees). Staff were given president-themed masks to wear (an homage to bank-robbery movie Point Break), though many ditched them as the space proceeded to get more crowded and sweaty. The bank-teller wall served as the bar, and guests lined up at each window to watch the bartenders contort into odd positions in order to mix drinks in the cramped space.
DJs spun bumping old school hip hop exclusively for the first hour (DMX! Biggie! Mary J. Blige!) before South African duo Die Antwoord took the stage. Penis imagery flashed repeatedly through the duration of their first song, "Wat Kyk Jy" which they concluded with a heartfelt, "FUCK YOOOOOOOOOOU NEW YORK CITY", while everybody went bananas. Garance Doré and Jenna Lyons danced along enthusiastically as did Hanne Gaby Odiele and Lindsay Ellingson. Eventually Liberty Ross made her way through the crowd, while a photo of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart flashed on the screen to Die Antwoord's angry songs. So obviously they're also on Team Liberty Ross as well. As the night wore on, more and more guests spilled in from Carine Roitfeld's CR gala, and eventually Busta Rhymes took to the stage and kept the party going into the wee hours.
