The Euphoria heartthrob made his presence felt at the party in a burnt orange ensemble that complemented his luscious dirty blonde curls.
He could be spotted mingling with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney of Bud Light infamy, actress D’Arcy Carden and record executive Charlie Christie.
As he made his way around the party, Charlie snagged a bit of a hobnob with fellow music executive Jeremy Vuernick and Mad Men alum Kiernan Shipka.
The Longines party came one night after Lukas made his first post-split public appearance, attending the star-studded season premiere of Fargo.
Lukas plays a recurring character on the new season of the show, which itself is inspired by the beloved 1996 Coen brothers movie starring Frances McDormand.
Two days earlier, Chris filed for divorce citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ – mere days after the wedding aired on the reality series The Kardashians.
Now sources close to Lukas claim he was the one who ended the relationship, with his partner’s alleged ‘controlling’ tendency supposedly fueling his decision.
‘Lukas broke it off because Chris was controlling and possessive, and he really thought that he was the most important person on earth,’ an insider told DailyMail.com exclusively.

Chris’ short marriage to Lukas was torn apart by accusations of ‘infidelity’, an insider has revealed to DailyMail.com
The longtime hair stylist, 40, whose client of Kim Kardashian surprised fans this week by filing for divorce just six months after tying the knot with Lukas, 28
The source said the couple ‘played’ together but suggested that their open relationship could have created a rift between them.
They also claimed Chris ‘filed first to save face’ and ‘conveniently waited until after the wedding episode aired on the Kardashians’, adding: ‘Everyone thinks it’s so shady.’
A separate source close to the situation said: ‘There was never an open relationship, Chris never cheated on Lukas. The timing of the filming is irrelevant to the episode, there was no choice but to file when he did.
‘There was a side to Lukas that Chris did not see prior to the marriage and this being Chris’s first marriage he went with a lot of love.’
DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Chris and Lukas for comment.
The former couple’s date of separation is listed as November 10, according to the divorce records, with documents revealing that they also had a prenup in place.
The source said: ‘They had a prenup and the split is easy considering it’s only been six months of marriage. Right now they are not getting along, at all.’
A source previously told TMZ that the split was ‘not an easy decision for Chris to make but he tried everything he could to make the marriage work and needed to make the best decision for himself moving forward.’
