Last night in Paris Carine Roitfeld threw a party (well technically it was a ball–Le Bal), to celebrate her new makeup collection for MAC at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. And everyone in fashion (from Karl Lagerfeld to Valentino to Kanye West to Karlie Kloss and everyone in between) put on a fancy dress or tux, forgot about the name-calling consuming the industry, and danced their cares away to musical act Paloma Faith. (To be fair, neither Horyn nor Slimane showed up. Now that would have been awkward.)
The dress code was “black tie, smokey eye” and everyone obliged, even the dudes. Pucci designer Peter Dundas as well as Rachel Zoe’s hubby Rodger Berman definitely had to borrow some eye makeup remover today. See evidence below:
I think almost the entire industry showed up last night. Which just goes to show how beloved Carine Roitfeld still is sans Vogue Paris. You couldn’t grab a flute of champagne without bumping into Nicolas Ghesquière or Azzedine Alaïa. Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls were filming House of Style on location (get excited for that episode). It was intimidating and awesome at the same time.
