Last night, an unseasonably warm autumnal evening set the scene for a celebration honoring Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy with a surprise performance by Mariah Carey, the reigning Queen of pop. The intimate dinner hosted by V invited guests to wander through the Top of the Standard's transformed space that was enhanced by the evening’s gilded art-deco theme.

After toasting the designer with Perrier-Jouet and The Sexton Irish Whiskey, Alex Pettyfer brought Hudson Kroening on stage to introduce Mariah Carey, who took center stage for a spellbinding performance that only the pop sensation could deliver—performing three hits, “Touch My Body," “Hero,” and "We Belong Together" to a packed house. After Mariah’s set came to a close, Karl Lagerfeld leapt on stage for a nostalgic moment shared between the two icons. Some of the notable attendees included Joan Smalls, Kris Jenner, Yolanda, Bella, and Gigi Hadid, Martha Stewart, and Naomi Campbell among others.
