2017 was an unnerving year. Trump became president, there were multiple terrorist attacks, such as at Manchester Arena bombing. An earthquake in Mexico, including the devastating Hurricane Harvey, left many dead. The doomsday believers were certainly reveling in the chaos that was unfolding.

Yet, in October of that year, something wonderful happened: V Magazine threw a party in honor of the late Karl Lagerfeld. The fashion icon, whose look is best defined as the pinnacle of chic, was in the city to accept an award to add to his collection.

At the Top Of The Standard, an art-deco themed event awaited the A-list guests. At around 7:40 attendees Kris Jenner, the Hadid sisters and their mother, Martha Stewart, Naomi Campbell, André Leon Talley and more would begin to fill the Meatpacking District penthouse. Lastly and to everyone's surprise, Mariah Carey hopped on stage wearing a Chanel trench coat and said, "Let’s liven things up a little.”

It would be full circle for the two friends, who met when Lagerfeld photographed Carey for V Magazine back in 2006. The singer would perform singles Touch My Body, We Belong Together and dedicated Hero to the legend, who will we dearly miss, Karl Lagerfeld.

Take a look through the night in pictures below.
