Last night, the V team, V99 Guest Editor Lady Gaga, and all of our closest friends feted our latest issue with a NYFW party at the legendary Rainbow Room atop 30 Rock.

Guests included Carine Roitfeld, Riccardo Tisci, Inez and Vinoodh, Marina Abramovic, Zachary Quinto, Lindsey Wixson, Klaus Biesenbach, Alanna Heiss, Peter Marino, Derek Blasberg, Garrett Neff, Brad Kroenig, Asia and Eva Chow, and many more.

Brian Newman and his band soundtracked the evening as guests arrived and marveled at the unobstructed views of New York City. There was a scintillating burlesque performance from Newman’s wife, Angie Pontani, and a surprise, impromptu, serenading from the Lady of the night. The Grammy Award-winner topped off a medley of jazz classics with a rendition of “La Vie en Rose,” as everyone drew in close around the piano. In between verses, Gaga chimed, "I’m only three martinis in. One more and it would be better." Truthfully, it being any more perfect is hard to imagine.

It has been one hell of a year so far for Lady Gaga: She wowed the world with her rendition of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, paid homage to the late great David Bowie at the Grammys, and, of course, assumed the role of guest editor for V99.

As the clock struck midnight (more like 1AM) and the band faded, DJ White Shadow, an executive producer of Artpop, started spinning Yo Gotti's "Down in the DM" remix with Nicki Minaj. Formalities, as you can imagine, quickly took second-string to fun, and the dance floor electrified. What transpired from there will live on only in memory. As a souvenir though, of the night's celebrations, guests were encouraged to take home a special hardbound copy of "Gaga's Fashion Guard." Weren’t there to celebrate with us? Scroll through the photos above and our commemerative issue could still be yours. Get your copy here.
