When one considers the many, many reasons to admire Stephen Schwarzman, difficulty arises in keeping the list to a manageable length. An abridged version, a mere fraction of his attributes, would include building Blackstone with own two hands, his support of literacy, his vision and execution in creating Yale’s first Ballet Society, his passion as it relates to the carried interest debate, on which he is not afraid to speak his mind, and his undying commitment to do right by clients.

Today another bullet point must be added, with regard to this:

That’s right, ladies! Something you might not have known about Mr. Schwarzman is that this Wall Street powerhouse? Can put himself together a Halloween costume! For the ignoramuses among us, that’s Schwarzman bearing an incredible likeness to Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, right down to the leather gloves and Swarovski-encrusted rings. Meanwhile, you have Kravis taping some pictures to his shirt of a bunch of centerfolds he cut out of magazines and telling people he’s “a chick magnet.” No contest.

    Is it gay if I immediately recognized that he was Lagerfeld without reading the story?

    Don’t feel bad. I thought he was a gay George Washington.

    His wife, as Anna Wintour.

    Anyone could build Blackstone with two hands, doing it with claws is way more impressive.

    i thought he was going as the white Michael Jackson circa 2050

    What’s the deal with MCC today? (and all week) Not showering or doing her hair, is this a cry for help, or the early signs of crack addiction?

    It’s amazing what you can do when your halloween costume budget is $250,000.

    He really went all out on the gayness, how much do you think it cost him to hire that tranny next to him for the whole night?

    The kid in blackface is awesome.

    it can’t be – she’s smiling.

    Same here. I guess it’s pretty easy to impersonate someone who compulsively wears ski-goggle-sized sunglasses and has hair that looks like a wig you’d buy at Party City for Halloween.

    No, but posting as “Lol” is.

    All his deeds and accomplishments amount to nothing. We do God’s Work. BTW, we cancelled Halloween this year and are considering cancelling Christmas again this year.

    With this accomplishment, he now qualifies to change his name to Steve Sorosman.

    redesigned, bigger, “better” Dealbook back to old stealing from Dealbreaker roots (no mention of where they obtained not one but two hedge fund letters cited here: http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2010/11/12/tudor-jones-questions-feds-bond-buying/) hint: they found them on dealbreaker, who reported them weeks ago.
