Blue Mermaids and Pink Haired Skaters

Spring weather arrived in New York, and despite rising Covid-19 cases, partygoers got dressed up and hit the town. A sea of mermaid gowns and penguin tuxedos flooded this year’s Save Venice ball, held on April 6 at Cipriani South Street. Lauren Santo Domingo was joined by 500 guests at an event that raised $2.1 million to restore Venice’s artistic treasures.

Also that night, the Poetry Project celebrated its 55th year as a harborage for contemporary poets with a gala at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery. Rene Ricard and Patricia Spears Jones were honored.

And Evan Mock, the pink-haired skateboarder and actor, held a 25th birthday party last Sunday at the Flower Shop on the Lower East Side. His ragtag crew included the model Ella Emhoff, the actor Thomas Doherty and the rapper Aminé. “This is a real cross-section of all the important people in my life,” Mr. Mock said.

The Most Dressed features great outfits from up, down and all around town.
