We popped into The Mark just in time to see a gaggle of socialites – Brill, Traina, Lezark – squeeze onto the red carpet for photos, but ran downtown to Sundance’s Full Frontal Fashion fete at the Standard before the real “celebrities” arrived at Chanel.
Most of the designers were long gone, back to the studio for castings etc., but if you’re stuck inside today, you can catch Chris Benz, Vena Cava, Christian Cota, Cushnie et Ochs and more on their new series, Catwalk Countdown.
Luckily, everyone ended up at Interview‘s 40th Anniversay party.
The magazine secured the basement of the Hudson Hotel, Good Units, for their bash and wall papered the whole thing with vintage Interview covers
Bleachers sat in the middle of the room, the perfect vantage point from which to see Kate Bosworth seriously rock out in a white mini dress with massive blue and white heels – we waited for the coiled bun atop her head to burst, but lost interest when Daphne Guinness arrived in a silver foil gown.
Giovanna Battaglia’s red leopard mini vied with Chloe Sevigny’s studded leather dress for best dressed. Meanwhile, Mary Kate Olsen appeared to be wearing three or four black coats and Lara Stone was nowhere to be found. Models, however, were everywhere, sandwiched between Purple‘s Olivier Zahm and Terry Richardson which means, ladies and gentlemen, that Fashion Week has officially started.
