Peter Dundas Picks Eugenie Niarchos, Bianca Brandolini as Godparents

BABY LOVE: Peter Dundas and Evangelo Bousis are regulars in Greece, holidaying, and shooting some of the Dundas look books there, too. Last weekend, they traveled to the posh coastal suburbs south of Athens for an altogether different reason: the baptism, in the Greek Orthodox Church, of their two babies, Alexios, who’s a year old, and the three-month-old Eleni.The godmothers were Eugenie Niarchos and Bianca Brandolini, and guests included Naomi Campbell, Natasha Poly, Dree Hemingway, Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana of Greece and Denmark, Laure Hériard Dubreuil, Aaron Young, Zani Gugelmann, Catherine Baba and Claire Courtin.
The Greek-Cypriot singer Anna Vissi performed at the party that followed at the Four Seasons Resort in Vouliagmeni.

While a baptism is a big moment for many Christian families, this particular baptism, which took place Saturday at the Panagia Faneromeni church in Vouliagmeni, was a milestone. Dundas and Bousis said it was the first Greek Orthodox baptism for the children of a gay couple in Greece.
The Archbishop of the Americas and the Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church baptized both children. Dundas said it was important to christen the children in the Greek Orthodox church “because Evangelo is Greek Orthodox and since our children were born, we’ve followed the traditions of the church.”
“We also thought it was important, in this time and age, that there was a change in the Orthodox Church, and that the children of gay and same-sex parents are able to be christened. We feel all children should have the opportunity to be blessed regardless of what faith and religion they believe in,” he said.
Dundas added that the Archbishop Elpidophoros of America “agreed all children are accepted in God’s eyes and have a right to be baptized. He is pushing for change in the Orthodox religion for the youth, and opening doors for everyone instead of turning people away,” he said.

Peter Dundas is no stranger to the Grammy red carpet.The Norwegian designer, who lives in Los Angeles, dominated headlines in 2017 after creating Beyoncé’s entire wardrobe for music’s biggest night. And last night, at the 64th annual Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, eyes were on his custom yellow and orange ombré jumpsuit, made for singer-songwriter H.E.R., inspired by a look worn by Aretha Franklin in 1976.
But viewers may have missed another one of his designs at the award show: Paris Hilton’s martini-shaped handbag. Made with the backing of French vodka company Grey Goose (hence the shape), the piece is available starting Monday as an NFT through a 72-hour auction with DressX, a Ukrainian digital-only, multibrand platform.

Blue and silver, adorned with 3,404 handset Swarovski crystals, the accessory took about a month to create.

“It made sense to do something that almost felt like a piece of jewelry,” Dundas said. “That’s how I approached it, and I tried different things or sketched up different possibilities of that. But I ended up just landing on something that felt very instinctual, which was the martini glass itself as a minaudière, like a clutch or a jeweled bag, and went from there.”

The design process was nothing but “fun,” Dundas said. Laughing, he added, “And it’s somewhat quite close to me for a personal reason, as a martini drinker.”
How does he take it?
“Very dirty, with three olives.”

It was a “no-brainer” to take part in such a project, he went on. And revealing the piece at a musical event “made total sense,” he said. “I’ve always dressed musicians and artists from the music industry, and that’s really happened very much by itself. I think every mood board I have, a good 50 percent are images from musicians from the past and from the present as well. The Dundas woman and the Dundas man is quite extroverted. It’s somebody who’s not afraid to be seen.”
Dundas will show his next collection in May, he revealed, but first, the brand will unveil its latest line with Revolve, as part of a partnership with the e-tailer, during Coachella. It’ll be his first time taking part in an activation during the music festival.
“I’m super excited to be doing that,” he said. “I’ve obviously been to Coachella before. I love festivals. But it will be a new experience. The world is kind of opening up again. Obviously, there are situations in this world that we have to be very mindful of, but I think, at the same time, people need to enjoy themselves. They need to have moments of decompression. They need to have moments where you can smile, where you have love, have friendship around you, and cultural enjoyment, like music.”
