On Monday night, Marc Jacobs and the Art Production Fund hosted an Urban Hoedown, genuine right down to the hay scattered on the floor of the Tribeca warehouse space. Partygoers were invited to indulge in cowboy costumes for the evening and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Giovanna Battaglia obliged, pictured here wearing Band of Outsiders, Marc Jacobs, and Rodarte. Highlights included authentic Western style BBQ and a mechanical bull (although neither Vlad nor Gio braved the bucker to my knowledge). Vladimir shared that his favorite cowboy is Clint Eastwood which of course prompted me to sing, "Rollin' rollin' rollin'... Though the streams are swollen... Keep them doggies rollin'... Rawhide!"
