Diary: Gallop gets leathered

Much fun was clearly had by all at Cindy Gallop's eye-watering birthday party in New York.

As you can see below, The Talent Business chief executive, Gary Stolkin, wore nothing more than a pair of leather briefs and matching waistcoat to the Helmut Lang-themed bash.

Snaps of the party on Flickr show the part-time magistrate having a dance-off with Coca-Cola's bare-chested vice-president of global marketing, Jonathan Mildenhall.

But be warned: the photos are not for the faint-hearted - which won't come as a surprise to attendees of last year's TED conference, where Gallop gave a talk about porn so explicit that the foundation had to hide the online footage.
