Brian Atwood Book Launch Party

Last night, Openhouse Gallery was transformed into every woman’s dream. Huge colored pictures from Brian Atwood’s new book, Role Play Rene, were blown up and displayed throughout the space. The book, which portrays his gorgeous shoes, is not the only gorgeous thing we’re looking at here. Half-clad men don the shiny pages in suggestive poses with Rene Russo, the star of the book. Rene was just one of the beautiful socialite guests at OHG. Byrdie Bell, Nate Berkus, Fabiola Beracasa, Erin Fetherston, Donna D’Cruz, and of course Brian Atwood were just a few of the big name New Yorkers spotted last night. But if you weren’t one of the lucky thousand to receive Role Play Rene, then good luck getting your hands on one now. The shoe fetish photography book isn’t available in stores, however you can be among the first to view the pictures from the event below.
