Fashion's most avant-garde, rarefied magazine took over one of the city's pop culture venues to launch its latest issue during Fashion Week. Visionaire—which sells high-concept, limited edition issues for around $200—brought about 800 fashion folks to drink and mingle among Madame Tussaud's wax figures of Us Weekly icons like Jennifer Lopez and Brad Pitt. Visionaire's new issue, “World,” is sponsored by the Gap, so the mass-market venue was somewhat appropriate. Event producers at Bureau Betak brought in orange ottomans, matching Gap/Visionaire signage and some flashy lighting, and in-house caterer Restaurant Associates served munchies. Lady Bunny and 2 Many DJs mixed music in two different overstuffed rooms, where even the young, impeccably scruffy fashion types were posing for pictures with the venue's wax figures.
