There were no walls filled with logos to serve as backdrops for paparazzi photos at Avenue magazine's 25th anniversary party at the Museum of Modern Art. Instead, some guests posed for photographs in front of a Roy Lichtenstein (“Bauhaus Stairway"). After all, this wasn't a corporate sponsored celeb-fest. This was a party for the Upper East Side grande dames to toast the magazine that covers them.

Inside the main hall, the Mark Kleinhaut Trio played for the well-dressed, well-coiffed crowd, which included Donald and Barbara Tober, Susan and Coleman Burke and Gigi Curiel. The lobby's main information kiosk was set up as a bar, and waiters circled with trays of exquisite hors d'oeuvres from Daniel Boulud's Feast & F?tes. The second floor featured another bar, and guests could sit at tables in the open area or circle through the floor's galleries (without their drinks, of course).
