Here's the last of this week's pell-mell crush of party reportage. Photawg Nikola Tamindzic hit last night's soiree to celebrate the release of designer Valentino Garavani's new fragrance, "Rock 'n' Rose." That's right: This was a party for a funk. An aroma. An odor. Nevertheless, fashion creatures boiled out of the woodwork in response to the scent, and though they may pretend for a moment to be camera-shy, we all know how this is going to end. Enjoy our own gallery of beautiful grotesques, and do the same with Nikola's full gallery. You won't be sorry! Well, actually you will, but at least you can't smell anything off the images.
