>> Last year, Marc Jacobs took over The Maritime Hotel's Hiro Ballroom and had Lady Gaga hammer out hits on a bejeweled piano for his afterparty. This year, his fete will be a more literary affair — in setting, at least. On Monday evening, Marc will have an intimate party at his newest store, book haven Bookmarc, on Bleecker Street — and a simultaneous private bash across the street at his Marc by Marc Jacobs stores in honor of the photographer Brian Bowen Smith, who photographed a series of more than 150 Jacobs employee portraits for a new book, The Men and Women of Marc Jacobs. (Smith previously photographed celebrities in the nude for Jacobs's charity push back in 2006. ) Even though the Bookmarc bash is slated to end at 10:30 pm, we hear the Boom Boom Room will be open for Jacobs and co. afterwards.
