Racked Awards 2013 Celebration at New York's McKittrick Hotel

Last night, fashion insiders, boutique owners, Racked editors, a pink-wigged Philadelphia drag queen, and an incredibly good band got together at the Heath inside the McKittrick Hotel to toast the winners of the 2013 Racked Awards. Consult the gallery above for a photographic guide to the festivities, and check out our party video after the jump.

The McKittrick is the home of interactive noir theater production Sleep No More, and the venue was appropriately dark and smokey—so the golden turbans awarded to the winners really stood out. Off to one side, our own Vintage Store Psychic Roxanne Elizabeth Usleman offered readings; in the back, guests posed for Rotobooth, which takes digital party photo using an old rotary phone. Powerful drinks were supplied by Tito's Vodka and Apothic, and the event benefitted Housing Works, a non-profit supporting homeless New Yorkers with HIV/AIDS.
