As our Paris Fashion Week adventure comes to an end, we were thrilled to attend the ultimate fashion party at the historic Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. The ball was hosted by Carine Roitfeld and assisted by John Demsey, Director of Estée Lauder, to celebrate Carine’s newest MAC Cosmetics range.
It was impressive to see the fashion set descend on the venue, it was an invasion but, a truly fashionable one. The ex-Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief and CR Fashion Book Founder and Editor’s theme for the night was ‘black tie and smokey eyes’. Even the men rocked some impressive guyliner, including the hunky waiters, Peter Dundas of Emilio Pucci, and Rodger Berman, Rachel Zoe’s husband and President of Rachel Zoe, Inc.
The women stuck to a black uniform from a black cutaway dress with slits all the way up her leg by Karlie Kloss, layered lace gowns showing lots of leg similar to Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and voluminous black tops with pencil skirts like Rachel Zoe. Cara Delevingne opted for a patterned and very flowy maxi dress in blues, greens and greys… we like a little rebel at the party.
Many of Carine’s longtime fashion BFF’s and collaborators were in attendance at the event including Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood, Mario Testino, Natalia Vodianova, Anna Dello Russo, Suzy Menkes, Olivier Zahm, Hamish Bowles, Marie Amelie Sauve, Derek Blasberg, and Andre Saraiva. We were so excited to see a few of our favorite designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Gareth Pugh, Alexander Wang, Peter Dundas, Giambattista Valli, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Azzedine Alaia, Valentino Garavani, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri.
