Looking through the past week’s party pix we were struck by this classic triptych of extremely influential characters. At an opening of an exhibition of photographs by Mikhail Baryshnikov the other night, the coolest dude to ever don a pair of ballet tights was flanked by fellow icons Julian Schnabel and Lou Reed.

Schnabel wore the winning cashmere and p.j.’s combo that scored him a MOTH, while Reed thankfully abandoned the Cabbage Patch Kids getup that drew our ire last month. Despite Reed’s distended belly (Schnabel wisely kept his under that cashmere coat), it was a very stylish scene indeed.

These three may be a trifle past their prime, but there’s hope for the older man here. You can take our word for it that these guys have no problem picking up chicks.
