Art Scene Scion Makes Friend with Benefit
</aCREEPY HUG? Richardson, with Jen Brill
On Wednesday night, the Nest Foundation hosted a cocktail party and art auction to benefit underage victims of sexual exploitation. And while the invitation didn't say anything about irony, the event's host committee included pervy photographers Terry Richardson, creator of Lee Jeans' Lolita ad campaign, and Sante D'Orazio, whose book Katlick School chronicled the sexual awakening of a teenage nymphette. Joe Francis, at least, was nowhere to be seen.
During the auction, Julian Schnabel's son Vito put in the winning bid for a Dan Colen painting, then walked out of Emergency Arts with it tucked under his arm. Earlier, though, Schnabel fils put on quite a show during cocktail. While other guests sipped from highballs and made chitchat, the 20-year-old aspiring art dealer held an intense make-out session with an unidentified blonde woman, who straddled him on a couch, ignoring stares.
