Emma Chamberlain and Kaitlyn Dever Among Visitors at Louis Vuitton’s ‘200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries’ Exhibition in Beverly Hills

Emma Chamberlain and Kaitlyn Dever Among Visitors at Louis Vuitton’s ‘200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries’ Exhibition in Beverly Hills

“I have a deep appreciation for things that have stood the test of time,” said Emma Chamberlain at Louis Vuitton’s “200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition” in Beverly Hills — a celebration of the French designer’s bicentennial birthday.“This was my first view of anything,” she said of visiting the space, held at 468 North Rodeo Drive — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s 22,250-square-foot pop-up space set to become a Cheval Blanc hotel. The luxury house tapped diverse creators and thinkers across art, science and pop culture to reimagine the Louis Vuitton trunk. “I loved it. I love this venue. It’s such a perfect place for this.”
She particularly loves Benji B’s creation, a trunk with an exposed music box inside. Playing sounds, it’s placed in the center of a room covered in red velvet. The music curator, along with architect Frank Gehry and Robert Moy’s Brooklyn Balloon Company, has a dedicated section within the exhibit.

“I loved how many different types of trunks there are,” continued Chamberlain, a face of the brand. The entrepreneur and content creator, who rose to fame on YouTube, has been a regular at Louis Vuitton events since 2019. “It’s really cool to limit an artist in a sense and say, ‘You have to make art, but on a trunk.’ And then see what gets created out of that.”
Free to the public through Sept. 6, exhibitors include Gloria Steinem, BTS, Alex Israel, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Peter Marino, The Simpsons and Lego — whose birthday cake creation is front and center at the entrance.
Israel, Gentry Stein, Yogi Cameron Alborzian and team members of PlayLab were among the visionaries who came out, as did guests Samara Weaving (currently starring in campaigns for Louis Vuitton), Kaitlyn Dever, Ava DuVernay, Jurnee Smollett, Iris Apatow, Jaden Smith, Ava Phillippe, Myha’la Herrold, Shay Mitchell, Nina Dobrev, Maria Bakalova, Madeleine Arthur and Kerry Condon. Most were in their Louis Vuitton best.
With her pick of looks, Chamberlain opted for a black minidress.
“I had two outfit options that I was choosing between,” she explained. “One of them was more casual, and I was like, ‘You know what? I wear casual all the time. I want to do a little cocktail dress feeling.’ I don’t do this very often in my day-to-day life, and I wanted to wear something I wouldn’t normally wear.”
She accessorized with a trunk-inspired clutch and platforms.
“This is super cool, because it kind of has this travel-y feel,” she said of the bag. “I had to wear a baby trunk. I love this. It makes me feel like a little travel trunk. And these heels are insane. I can’t. I love these shoes.”
Dever, standing nearby, had on the same pair.
“OK, see, I don’t know why we wear any other shoe,” Dever said with a smile. The actress, who’s received critical acclaim for “Unbelievable” and “Booksmart,” plays the daughter of George Clooney and Julia Roberts in Ol Parker’s “Ticket to Paradise,” out in October, and will star as the lead in Karen Maine’s Shakespeare-inspired “Rosaline.”
“They’re comfortable,” she continued. “I’ve been walking around all night. I could go for six more hours. It’s great. And also, height never hurt anybody. I’m short. I’m 5’3″. It’s not great, and I need a platform. And this Vuitton shoe is absolutely perfect. It’s crazy.”

Working with stylist Ryan Hastings, she decided on a long vest with a plunging neckline, adorned with sparking details, and structured pants.
The silhouettes had both a feminine and masculine sensibility. “That’s how I always feel when I’m wearing Vuitton,” she said of the remark. “I really feel like both my feminine and masculine side is represented.”
Coincidentally, that was the inspiration behind one of the trunks: Alborzian’s creation, an open box looking into a representation of Shiva Shakti — the perfect union and balance of male-female energy in yogic philosophy.
“The idea was, it’s blank on the outside, you have to go inward,” Alborzian said. “When you open it up, you see both femininity and masculinity in its form. It’s in a tantric form. There is no difference between anybody. We are masculine and feminine. We are not just male and female.”
A former model, who’s worked with the likes of Madonna and Naomi Campbell, Alborzian is a yoga and Ayurveda therapist based in Los Angeles.
“Because we live in a material world, it’s important to bring things to the material level. That’s where people connect these days. Hopefully, it gets people to think,” he said of his piece. “I like the surface, but the surface doesn’t last. So, I’m very much about, let’s begin at the surface, where we connect, and then let’s let ourselves sink into it — see all of these creations and ask, ‘What is the deeper meaning behind each one of them?’”
Dever resonated with the work of Jakub Józef Orliński, a Polish operatic countertenor singer. Inspired by “the extreme value of the unit, of singular people like Louis Vuitton,” Orliński has said the piece is “based on the feeling of uniqueness.”
“The trunk had a quote on it that said, ‘There is only one me, one time,’ which I really appreciated and thought was really meaningful,” Dever said. “He sheds light on how fragile humanity is.”

Wyclef Jean Gets the Crowd Dancing at Tod’s East Hampton Dinner

Wyclef Jean Gets the Crowd Dancing at Tod’s East Hampton Dinner

Tod’s again touched down in East Hampton, hosting a fashionable mix of guests to fete the brand’s second season of its Hampton boutique. Hosted at a private seaside residence — where even on a  particularly muggy night,  spectacular views were to be had — the stylish crowd with its mix of loafers and T Timeless handbags was served  Italian-themed cocktails and light bites, before sitting down for a dinner that was grilled ocean side.After the first course the evening leveled up with musical guest of honor Wyclef Jean taking the stage, sheepishly explaining, “We can do this one of two ways — I can play and you all can sit and eat…or you can get up and dance. Which way do you want it?”

Partygoers, including Kelly Roland, an old friend and collaborator of Jean’s, immediately took to the lawn, transforming the event into a once-in-a-lifetime, intimate dance party to Wyclef’s greatest, Grammy-award-winning hits. And with Roland  shaking it on the dance floor, there was even a full-on Destiny’s Child sing-along moment. A one-man musical supernova, the artist played guitar, piano, danced in the crowd and, of course, freestyled about his all-Tod’s ensemble.

“I was to do 15 minutes,” Jean said to the crowd, who couldn’t get enough dancing to every beat. “But that’s not me, I can go all night.”
Eventually the Haitian performer took a break, letting guests finish dinner, promising to return post dessert.
“The energy from this event demonstrates the essence of the Tod’s lifestyle — Italian, sophistication, boldness and joy,” said Roberto Lorenzini, chief executive officer of Tod’s Group Americas, who said brief words, preferring to let the alchemy of the party continue.

Other guests included Sasha Lane, Kathryn Newton, Joey Wölffer, Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, Katie Lee, Jordan Roth, Isolde Brielmaier, Rachel and Neil Blumenthal, Lauren Santo Domingo, Gucci Westman, Natalie Massenet, Erik Torstensson, Colby Mugrabi, Quincy Davis, Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, Sean MacPherson, Sophie Elgort, Tinamarie Clark, Sai de Silva, and Coco Bassey, among others.

Sidaction Gala Returns to Paris Couture Week After Two-Year Hiatus

Sidaction Gala Returns to Paris Couture Week After Two-Year Hiatus

PARIS — The fashion industry celebrated the end of Paris Couture Week with the Sidaction gala dinner, back for its first physical edition since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.Designers and celebrities came together for the fundraising event, organized in partnership with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, and hosted by Sidaction ambassador and artistic director Jean Paul Gaultier, who launched proceedings with a fashion show featuring the contestants of “Drag Race France.”

Dotted around the room were designers including Matthew Williams, Iris van Herpen, Glenn Martens, Camille Miceli, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, Alexis Mabille, Bianca Saunders and Yang Li. Also present were Tracee Ellis Ross, Camille Razat, Big Matthew, Rossy de Palma, Jeanne Damas and Carla Bruni, who was joined mid-dinner by her husband, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

“I work for Netflix,” French actor Samuel Arnold demurely replied to a guest who wondered why he looked so familiar. Since his summer will be spent on the set of “Emily in Paris,” where he portrays the ever-sarcastic Julien, he wasn’t planning ahead all that much.
“Who knows? I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow,” joked the actor, noting that the hit show had opened doors for him abroad. In his sights is Los Angeles, especially now that he has signed with prominent talent agency APA.
Taking in the Pavillon Cambon Capucines decked in red, Arnold declared the evening “mesmerizing” and said he was happy to support the cause. He didn’t know about the always buzzy lucky draw. “Already being here is a prize in itself,” he said.

Guillaume Henry was still taking in the responses — good and bad — to Julia Fox’s appearance in his first physical runway show for Patou.
“She’s not one of my personal muses but all the girls at the office were talking about her all the time,” he admitted. The designer became interested in Fox once he saw her supporting emerging designers, and his team reached out.
“She represents a [new wave] of female empowerment. For me, a ‘militant woman’ looked like [French politician] Simone Weil. Today, she’s wearing micro-skirts and boots, she totes her kid like a bag, and it’s fascinating,” he continued, describing Fox as “smart, in love with clothing and a bit nervous” and comparing her to a modern-day Marilyn Monroe.
Fresh from winning the ANDAM Fashion Award, Lisi Herrebrugh and Rushemy Botter were preparing to head to the Cayman Islands – part vacation, part research trip. They’ve been running their Botter menswear brand with a team of just three people and were grateful for the 300,000-euro prize money.
“First of all we’re going to invest it in more structure in Botter, hiring people, also in developing fabrics, so bio-fabricated from algae, working with engineers. We can move quicker now,” Botter said.
The evening was a breather for Paris-based Spanish designer Arturo Obegero, who had donned one of his jackets with a dramatic fluted open neckline with tuxedo trousers.
Before he can enjoy a summer break that will see him head toward the Mediterranean, he was doubling down on the production of his menswear line. “After a collection, I always have a kind of epiphany that I then have to process. So things will be cooking throughout the summer,” he said between courses.

Victor Weinsanto and Charles de Vilmorin were feeling energized by the influx of tourists and fashion editors to Paris. “Life is finally returning. I hope it lasts. It feels good and it motivates you,” said Weinsanto. “Yes, it’s good to see things going back to normal and almost more extreme than before, I feel. It’s really quite brilliant,” de Vilmorin enthused.
But the two fledgling designers don’t plan to join in the revelry. Asked what his plans were for summer, Weinsanto said: “Work.”

Michael Kors Toasts Ellesse Collaboration From the 65th Floor

Michael Kors Toasts Ellesse Collaboration From the 65th Floor

Michael Kors aimed high Thursday night for its collaboration launch party with Ellesse. The brands merged the MK and Ellesse logos for a 24-piece capsule collection, which was worn by many attendees during the kickoff event at Bar SixtyFive at Rainbow Room. Guests including Amelia Gray Hamlin, Priah Ferguson, Wolftyla, Batsheva Hay, Ezra J. William, Jessica Wang and James Turlington rode the elevator to the 65th floor, where they were rewarded with stunning views of Manhattan. A step-and-repeat was backed by views of Central Park (and Billionaire’s Row).
Outside on the terrace, campaign face and event host Emily Ratajkowski joined the crowd partaking in the prime selfie opportunities.
Brooklyn rapper Jay Critch, who appears in and lent a musical track for the campaign video, arrived just before sunset, wearing a track jacket from the collection.

“My agency Next Models linked me up with the project, shout-out to them,” Critch said. “It was great to see myself in the campaign because it’s the first one I’m a part of and I think everything fit perfectly, and it means a lot to have my song be the soundtrack to the release.”
New fans are in luck: Critch is headed back to the studio to release more music soon.
“Right now, I am working on my next project dropping this summer, so I’ve been locked in putting it together,” he said, adding, “This one is going to be different.”

Inside the Mark Hotel, Where Many Met Gala Attendees Began Their Night

Inside the Mark Hotel, Where Many Met Gala Attendees Began Their Night

“God was looking out for me.”Inside the Mark Hotel on Monday afternoon, dreams were coming true for at least one person stationed in the lobby: Jack Harlow, dressed in Givenchy and waiting to make his official Met Gala departure, had obliged one fan’s request for a selfie.
“I have no expectations,” said the rapper, of what the evening might have in store, as he flashed a smile toward the call of adoring fans.
The room was swelling to a critical mass, bloated with the team of HMUA, stylists, publicists and designers — and a few party crashers — who help make the Met Gala magic happen. Outside the hotel, swarms of people had congregated behind metal barricades as traffic leading into the 70s on Madison inched along, led by the siren call of flashing red and blue lights up and down the avenue.

The Met Gala was back to its usual First Monday in May slot, and the “Gilded Age” glamour — often very loosely channeled — was on full display at The Mark, one of the main VIP getting-ready spots.
Team Louis Vuitton — which included Emma Stone, Eileen Gu and Sophie and Joe Jonas — were the first to depart around 4 p.m., hitting a pre-event before heading to the Met. They were soon followed by Anna Wintour and family; after a brief huddle, Bee Carrozzini ushered her mom to lead the pack as they stepped through the hotel’s front doors and past the lineup of photographers flanking the carpet in front of the hotel.
Shortly after 5 p.m., Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli hurried past followed by Pat McGrath, and Bella Hadid’s bodyguard appeared in the lobby shortly after. A flash of hot pink began descending the staircase, promising a dramatic look, but it was a false alarm — Nicola Peltz and her new husband Brooklyn Beckham turned around and went back upstairs.
Tommy Dorfman welcomed the attention as she posed for the lobby audience. “Hi everybody!”
Jordan Roth carefully made his way down the stairs in his voluminous Thom Browne look — a more black-tie version of what he modeled in the designer’s runway show on Friday. “Thank you all for parting the way,” Roth said as he walked past.
Janelle Monáe, glittering in a slinky Ralph Lauren sequined look, gamely posed for lobby photographers, workshopping a few sculptural poses that she later repeated on the Met steps.
“Can we have a drink? A scotch on the rocks,” said Anderson Paak, grinning and grooving in Gucci as he stepped into the lobby.
Nicola Coughlan sipped a glass of Champagne as she waited her turn to leave, while her hairstylist made their final touch-ups. The “Bridgerton” actress offered up a loose feather from her Richard Quinn gown to a passing admirer. “It’s a souvenir,” she said.
“Hey, there’s people here,” exclaimed Sabrina Carpenter as the elevator doors opened and she emerged in her gold sequin two-piece. She gave Harlow a playful punch on the shoulder as she slinked past. “Hey killer,” she said.
Team Chloé — Amy Schumer, designer Gabriela Hearst, Venus Williams and activist Xiye Bastida — made their way as an entourage, all donning black sunglasses; other designer pairings included Phoebe Bridgers with Jonathan Simkhai, Rosalía with Matthew Williams, and NCT rapper Johnny Suh with designer Peter Do, who also dressed Eva Chen for his Met Gala debut.

“You look amazing,” said Suh to Theophilio designer Edvin Thompson, who was decked in Thom Browne nearby; Thompson volleyed the compliment back.
Thompson had accessorized with one of Thom Browne’s dog bags (“this was made for my phone,” he said, demonstrating that the bag was more than just for show). Gunna showed off his sequined and tuxedoed version of the bag. It’s all in the details — “gu-tails,” the rapper said.
The lobby was bloated with celebs waiting their turn to depart, although not all were excited to hang around and mingle. “I don’t want to stand here,” said Bella Hadid, directing her team off to the side from the center of the room after discovering there was a queue.
Peltz and Beckham reappeared, finally ready to make their grand exit, while Oscar de la Renta designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia made their way through the lobby in the opposite direction just shy of 7 p.m. They reemerged shortly after with Ivy Getty.
Each time the mirrored elevator doors slid open, the crowd directed their attention to discover who would appear next: team Moschino, Lily James, Chloe Bailey.
Dwyane Wade backed out of the elevator bank in a white suit and no shirt, walking stick in hand and reached a hand out for wife Gabrielle Union. “I’m feeling good. Ready. She’s ready,” said Wade, admiring the giant red floral appliqué on Union’s Versace gown.
Ready, set, go: with that, the crowd was off for the main event.

Sézane Brings Cal-French Style to L.A. Pop-up, Throws Dinner Party

Sézane Brings Cal-French Style to L.A. Pop-up, Throws Dinner Party

Sézane has returned to Los Angeles.The Paris-based brand first arrived in L.A. in 2018, opening a pop-up at the Grove (a year after unveiling its New York flagship); it’s now back, this time at Platform in Culver City, Calif.
“I have always had a fondness for Culver City, and the location of Platform is incredibly charming,” founder Morgane Sézalory, who launched the brand in 2013, told WWD. “The creative community and curation of independent brands that the space has orchestrated is so perfect for Sézane. We are so proud to be amongst so many others who share our ethos on low-impact practices and sustainability, it felt like such a natural step for us to return to the West Coast as part of the Platform.”

The B Corp-certified, Parisian boho-sweet brand, known for on-trend pieces such as the signature Will jacket and Farrow bucket bag, as well as high-waist denim, mariniere and feminine blouses with a French touch, has a natural affinity for L.A., and has been working with local influencers for several years.

To celebrate its new space, the brand threw a dinner at Ardor, the eatery at The West Hollywood Edition hotel — though Sézalory didn’t make the trip to L.A.
Her French team did, however, and were joined by rising Hollywood actresses Maria Bakalova, Akira Akbar, Ella Purnell and Laya DeLeon Hayes, as well as familiar fashion-industry faces Hilary Rhoda, TyLynn Nguyen and Elisa Sednaoui Dellal.
The menu, as imagined by Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur John Fraser, featured locally sourced ingredients — roasted veggies, grilled fish, steak — followed by a birthday cake for dessert. It was made for English actress Gabrielle Ryan.
“I can’t believe this!” exclaimed Ryan (currently costarring on Starz’s “Power Book IV: Force”), who was surprised with a custom red velvet creation, covered in edible flowers.
The affair was held in the garden terrace of the restaurant, surrounded by greenery and flowers, which guests were invited to take home (along with a gifted raffia tote). The women, wearing head-to-toe Sézane, included singer Kaien Cruz; model Camila Costa; actresses Abigail Spencer, Sarah Ramos, Asia Monet Ray, Nora Zehetner, Isabel Gravitt, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Rachel Matthews, Rainey Qualley, Rumer Willis, and stylists Jessica Paster and Tara Swennen.
The 1,600-square-foot store doesn’t have a closing date yet; if all goes well, it could be a permanent location at Platform, where neighbors include Reformation, Janessa Leone, Donni, chef and surfer Colin Whitbread’s new restaurant Fiish and more.
In addition to the women’s collections, Sezane’s L.A. boutique also offers lifestyle goods by Bitossi Home, children’s wear by Bobo Choses and fragrance from Les Parfums des Bienaime.

Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Timothée Chalamet Among the VIPs at Revolve Festival During Coachella’s First Weekend

Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Timothée Chalamet Among the VIPs at Revolve Festival During Coachella’s First Weekend

Marketing dollars at Revolve go into harnessing the power of social media, hosting dazzling productions, tapping influencers to drive sales, and mounting the Revolve Festival, which has become a key event for the retailer in recent years.That is, until the pandemic hit. But with Coachella’s return after a two-year break, Revolve Festival was also back this past weekend.
“We had to come back bigger and better than ever,” said Michael Mente, co-chief executive of Revolve, on Saturday afternoon. “A few hours in, I’m super, super confident that we did.”
While most brands throw lowkey daytime events during Coachella, usually poolside with a few up-and-coming performers, Revolve Festival is a full-blown music festival with big-name performers, who in the past have included Cardi B, SZA and A$AP Rocky.

Now in its fifth year — a partnership with hospitality company The H.wood Group (owners of celeb-filled L.A. hot spots The Nice Guy and Delilah) — Post Malone, Ty Dolla $ign, Bia, Latto and Jack Harlow were among those who took the stage this year at the seven-hour-a-day party, held at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, Calif.
But leave it to Revolve to bring out one of the most talked about people on the planet — Kim Kardashian, who showed up with Kendall Jenner (her tequila brand 818 was a sponsor, the numbers splashed throughout).
There was also “It” boy actor Timothée Chalamet, “Euphoria” star Sydney Sweeney and many more familiar faces — music artists Migos, Tyga, YG, Diddy, Halsey, Diplo, Chloe Bailey; actors Keke Palmer, Peyton List, Storm Reid; models Elsa Hosk, Romee Strijd, Shanina Shaik, and Jasmine Tookes, and social media stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio.
It was a bigger production than in years past — with more activations on hand — but the guest list was kept at about the same number, said Mente: “For us, it was more about quality over quantity. We didn’t want to lose the intimacy of the event. The team worked incredibly hard to put it together.” (Even so, there was quite a backlog of frustrated guests waiting to be shuttled in and out, with some reportedly in lines for hours unable to even make it inside.)
Revolve is now about 1,100 employees total, he revealed. After launching the company with just two, with Mike Karanikolas in 2003, the business grew to be valued at $1.5 billion when it went public in 2019.
Then came COVID-19. But born digital-first, Revolve was ready.
“The biggest thing that we really accelerated was expansion of categories,” Mente said of pivoting to meet the times. “We were always so known for Revolve Festival, Revolve All Around the World travel, but, of course, we’re not all dressing like that all the time. Throughout the pandemic, our customer started to come to us for a broader range of needs. We had that deep trust with her, that it really gave us permission to sell her more, offer more and more to her.”
It’s been working; in 2021, the company had profits of $99.8 million, up 76 percent from $56.8 million in 2020 and ahead of the $35.7 million seen in 2019. Sales of $891.4 million rose 54 percent from $580.6 million in 2020 and exceeded the $601 million total in 2019, as reported by WWD.

“I am such a fan of the two-day shipping, and that’s what gets me all the time,” said 22-year-old Kit Keenan, “The Bachelor” star, influencer and daughter of designer Cynthia Rowley.
“Like, if I’m going on a trip and I forget to order something, it’s there in two days,” she said of shopping on the site.
That’s part of the e-commerce business’ success — it’s reliable, said Mente, working to provide trendy, last-minute shopping in a variety of styles and prices.
It’s about giving Gen Zers options, and moving forward. That also means being more inclusive at Revolve, which has faced backlash for lacking diversity. In September the company will unveil a fall collection sized XXS to 3X made in collaboration with TikToker Remi Bader, whose fashion content centers on body positivity.
The influencer posted a video about a year ago that grabbed Revolve’s attention, she explained.
“I was just like, ‘I love Revolve, but I can’t necessarily wear everything that they have,’ and right away, like that day or the next day, they reached out,” said Bader. “I had maybe 200,000 followers. I wasn’t at where I’m at now.”
Today she has over 2 million followers on the platform.
“I love that they reached out to me and were like, ‘We want you to help make us inclusive. We want to do a line with you,’” she said. “I’m having a lot of input in the design process. I’m trying on things. They’re letting me be super involved…When you find something that you love and fits you, it’s the best feeling. You don’t want to have to fit into the clothes.”
She had on a sheer, cutout, halterneck maxi dress from Revolve’s line with fellow influencer Camila Coelho. It was her first time at Coachella, courtesy of Revolve.
“This sounds bias, but Revolve puts on the best parties,” she said.
Keenan, too, was invited to Coachella (and dressed) by Revolve. She had on a floral top by LPA and tiered ruffle skirt by Lovers And Friends, paired with a Fendi bag and cowboy boots by Ranch Road.
“I’ve been having so much fun putting my outfits together and also seeing what my friends are wearing,” she said. “I feel like we all have a different vibe. I posted a TikTok about how I feel like there’s four types of girls at Coachella. You’re either the boho girl, the trendy girl, the goth girl or the rave girl. I feel like I’ve seen that all around.”

Whatever the looks, Revolve is taking notes, using the data to project forward.
“The rest of the year will be pretty packed with a lot of different things in terms of activations, partnerships, old things, new things, category expansion,” said Mente. “We’ve been on defense for a few years, and now, this is return to full offense, and we’re ready.”

“I was going to wear Balenciaga from 1962, but when you put on something vintage and you’re vintage, it makes you look vintage,” said Becca Cason Thrash, glittering in a slinky sequined Rodarte. “Vintage is for young girls.”

The Moschino creative director was the man of the cocktail hour, having supplied painterly fashions from his Picasso-inspired spring 2020 collection to dress the doormen, DJ and several models, who posed in living tableaux photo ops for guests.
“I’m thrilled to be here and be Nancy’s guest and support the organization,” Scott said. “I’m from Kansas City, so I’m your neighbor. I love coming here because everyone is so friendly and genuine.”
Mary McDermott turned heads in a whimsical floral swing tunic and bellbottom pants created exclusively for her by longtime local designer Terri Camarillo Nytra.
“People don’t understand that this used to be a costume party,” said McDermott, whose late mother Margaret is the museum’s single biggest benefactor. “The first one I remember was ‘The Rites of Spring.’”
Fulk swanned among the ladies, joking about a 15-year affair with Thrash and cuddling up to Christen Wilson with the comment, “Just call us the Dallas couple.”
“He’s doing our house,” Wilson chimed in, “and he knows I’m a minimalist and he’s a maximalist.”
A number of the women sported newly natural silver hair, while Bag Snob blogger Tina Craig had colored her long hair red.

“I got divorced, and I’m reinventing myself,” Craig said.
The vintage theme permeated the menu, which opened with a globe of caviar atop onion dip served with potato chips followed by beef pot pie and crudités on a silver tray reminiscent of TV dinners and chunky banana pudding with Nilla wafers.
In his remarks, DMA director Augustín Arteaga couldn’t help but tease the upcoming “Cartier and Islamic Art: In Search of Modernity” exhibition running May 14 to Sept. 18. The DMA co-organized it with the Musée des Art Décoratifs in Paris and in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre and support from Cartier.
“It is going to be beautiful,” Arteaga said. “It is going to be the most mind-blowing thing ever.”

Sam Smith, AJ Tracey and Romeo Beckham Rave With Prada at Tate Modern

Sam Smith, AJ Tracey and Romeo Beckham Rave With Prada at Tate Modern

PRADA LIVE: Prada brought a rave party to the tanks at Tate Modern on Thursday night, and the fashion kids in town were clamoring to get in.
Sam Smith was spotted arriving at the party around midnight wearing a black nylon coat and carrying a sparkly crystal-studded satin tote bag, all by the brand. Romeo Beckham was there with his girlfriend Mia Regan, and they were both dressed in Y2K attire.
Lots of Prada runway pieces made their way onto the dance floor: artist Shaquille-Aaron Keith wore a pink leather bomber jacket, while rapper AJ Tracey was seen in a dark navy corduroy coat, both from the brand’s fall 2021 collection.

The event, Prada Extends, was part of the Italian fashion house’s global live events series.

The London edition was curated by electronic musician and Prada collaborator Richie Hawtin, aka Plastikman. He paired local music and visual artists — Hawtin with Joelle Snaith; HAAi with Hanzo; OK Williams with L’Aubaine; and Overmono with Rebel Overlay — to create physical experiences where people, ideas and aesthetics can connect, and extend the brand into new territories.

It was the British-born, Canadian-raised Hawtin who proposed the idea of Prada Extends.
“I like the name ‘extend.’ Prada extending outwards, connecting to people and being a catalyst to bring communities and creatives together, interconnecting the like-minded. I can imagine that each event focuses on a local scene, the details within it, and pushes it outwards further than originally imagined,” he said.

If ever there was a time for wearing head-to-toe Gucci monogram, the “House of Gucci” premiere was it.On Tuesday night, many guests at the film’s New York premiere obliged the opportunity, donning Gucci everything: shoes, bandanas, bags, pants, tops, skirts, dresses — anything that GG can be tacked on was represented in the theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The film’s ensemble cast was all in attendance, including Lady Gaga dressed in custom Giorgio Armani Privé, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek and Jeremy Irons. (Leto and Hayek were dressed in Gucci; later that night, Jared Leto later swapped his Gucci for a Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello look for his appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”)

Other celebrity guests at the premiere and after party at Top of the Rock included Billy Porter, Zac Posen, Andy Cohen, Julia Fox, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl.
Director Ridley Scott and his producer wife Giannina Facio welcomed the cast onstage before the screening. “One thing I can’t remember are lines, so I’m gonna have to read it. I’d never make an actor,” said Scott, unfolding a piece of paper. “This film has been carried by our producer, also my wife, for over 20 years. That’s a hell of a pregnancy.”
“Great scripts attract great actors, and we have an informidable cast,” he added. “In brief, the story can be described as a comedy of errors which seize tragic events. I think it’s best described as a very posh satire. It is kind of satirical.”
Walking onstage, Leto (“always looking gorgeous and fashionable,” said Facio) cupped his hands around his mouth and shouted “hello” into the cavernous theater. Pacino flashed a thumbs-up to the crowd as the cast shuffled back into the wings, and onto the next press appearance.
