Manhattan's Intrepid Aircraft Carrier, anchored on the Hudson River near bustling Times Square, was the landing point for a bevy of fashionistas on Monday night. Seems like a strange mix, but the group was gathered to celebrate the annual charity event Jeffrey Fashion Cares. Jeffrey Kalinsky, who is the owner of the high-end boutique Jeffrey and a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, invited a few hundred of his closest friends for a night of libations, philanthropy, and mingling. In addition to a crowd filled with outlandish eccentrics (Andrej Pejic in one corner and the real Chloƫ Sevigny, co-chair for the event, in the other), participants partook in a silent auction of designer goodies with names like Prada, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton. There was also a fashion show featuring spring's hottest looks, and in a savvy move to appeal to the mostly gay male/straight female audience the emphasis wasn't on the apparel itself but, rather, on the hard-bodies beneath.

This wasn't all just gratuitous eye candy (though clearly we have no problem with that). All proceeds from the auction and admission fees are donated to non-profit organizations benefitting the LGBT community. 

Check out the slide show of gay attendees, their gal pals, and all the hot models; fabulous photography comes from Wilsonmodels. You can then learn more about the organization by watching Out.com's video interview with Kalinksy and visiting the Jeffrey Fashion Cares site at JeffreyFashionCares.org.
