partypeople watching

What do you get when you add a week of Haute Couture shows, four impending Fashion Weeks, OSCAR season, and you mix them all up in a bubbling pot? A big old style soup and a whole lot of fabulous parties!

Wednesday night saw a bash thrown in celebration of the opening of Stella McCartney's first (that's premiere, all you francophiles) store in Paris, and with Catherine Deneuve, Marianne Faithful, Lara Stone, Lily Donaldson, Stefano Pilati (deep breath!), Sasha Pivovorova, Daphne Guinness and fashion industry bigwigs all in attendance, it was of course a very stylish affair.

Lily Donaldson wins in the dress department for her LBD, but Lara Stone's magenta dress trumps in the colour category. What does everyone think of Sasha P's effort?

I was intrigued that this store is opening just as her Moscow store is shutting down after a very short run.

Daphne Guinness is my favorite, if only for her cruela hair.

So hard to pick a favourite, agree with your comments about Lily and Lara, but Daphne's dress is also gorgeous. I like Sasha Ps outfit too, love the layered necklaces and eyemake up, she is the original Sasha Fierce

alls i know is that lily is GORGE .
& daphne's shoes should be in my closet .
no ,
on my feet .
asap .
i've got a party to go to tonight .. so expresspost those babies please, daphy dear .

+ about girlfriend in a coma , it's not bad .
i mean, i have definitely read better coupland novels (such as the gum thief), though it was very cool .
at parts i just wanted to shred the pages, but at the end it was one of those books where you're glad you read it .
like i said, it's cool .
it's definitely not for everyone, and when i lent it to a few of my friends they proceeded to tell me later that it was 'fucked up' and 'so weird' .

but i think you should still give it a try , i liked it .

Sofia said...

both the purple dresses looked amazing... or maybe it's just me being in love with the color.

F. said...

Sasha Pivovarova...maybe should have downsized in the necklace department..
it's kind of old lady...but in an amazing old lady way...
&strangely i'm a bigger fan of Guiness' dress than of Donaldson's

Lily Donaldson looks like Kate Moss a bit in that picture. Nevertheless it's a fabulous dress :)

Alice X said...

Hi All !!
It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.

I love Lily. She's gorgeous

Elle said...

When I saw Sasha I was all 'WOW! GEMMA DROPPED THOSE POUNDS FAST!' Esp after the Aussie tabloids did the whole 'Roll model' article on Gemma's weight gain. Then I realised that the features were way too sharp to be Gemma. Plus Sasha is way more FIERCE. Lol.

I love this picture of Stella, it's very cool.
I like Sasha's idea, but maybe it is a little too hip hop video backing dancer?
