MONCLER’S SNAPSHOT: Sure, sure everybody’s a photographer in these iPhone-wielding days, but at Moncler’s party Thursday night that really seemed to be the case.

Fabien Baron, Hans Feurer, Lachlan Bailey, Craig McDean, Brigitte Lacombe, Mario Sorrenti, Charlotte Kidd, Terry Richardson, Olivier Zahm, Pamela Hanson, Roxanne Lowit (…you get the picture) weathered the rain to get to the New York Public Library. Some like Calvin Klein skipped the seated dinner for 200, stopping by just to check out the “Art for Love” exhibit. The Baron-curated images are also in a new book and an online auction — no small task.

Moncler uk chairman and chief executive officer Remo Ruffini explained, “For me, these are the 32 best photographers. I made my own list. It was easy to make the list, but very difficult to convince them.”

Guests eyeing the “Art for Love” images included Lily Kwong, Liya Kebede, Toni Garrn, Nan Bush, and Pyper and Lucky Smith.
