Carlos Santolalla, downtown it-boy and DKNY FW14 runway & ad-campaign star, captured the fun at the 12th annual PAPER Magazine Beautiful People event, sponsored by DKNY, in his notoriously disposable camera way. Click through the gallery to spy our other campaign star, Rita Ora, along with PAPER & DKNY's fabulous downtown friends.

Friday was a night to remember as DKNY and PAPER took over Up n Down to celebrate the magazine’s ‘Beautiful People’ issue. Before the actual party there was a dinner (think 50 person long table) in cover girl Rita Ora's honor, attended by all the singer’s favorite guests. VIPs like Laverne Cox, Russell Simmons, Jeremy Scott and Perez Hilton all graced the table, laughing it up with PAPER’s own Mr. Mickey and Kim Hastreiter. As us guests upstairs lingered over dessert, the basement was lighting up with New York’s brightest partygoers (including what seemed like the rest of the DKNY FW14 ad-campaign cast...stay tuned!). I tried to immortalize some of this year’s bacchanal of beauties while bouncing between floors, ending the night with an impromptu sidewalk photoshoot with pop-star Natalia Kills & friends.
