The Sheepdogs celebrated their Choose the Cover Contest victory last night at an exclusive party on the rooftop of the Empire Hotel in Manhattan. Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Larry David, True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård, Ice-T and Coco, supermodel Jessica White, Law and Order SVU’s Kelli Giddish and Glee cast member Harry Shum Jr. all turned out to toast the winners alongside Rolling Stone staffers and music industry luminaries.
Though previous Rolling Stone cover stars David and Skarsgård attracted some attention, particularly from their female fans, the stars of the night were undoubtedly the Sheepdogs, who strutted around the swanky party with the swagger of champions. The guys looked especially sharp on the red carpet in outfits that merged their no-frills classic rock aesthetic with slick, contemporary fashions. “I think we’d rather go out there au natural, but it’s nice to get dressed up sometimes,” says Sheepdogs drummer Sam Corbett. “The look we’re going for right now is supposed to be ‘Sixties dandy.'”
