On the eve of their public debut on the Milan Stock Exchange, Salvatore Ferragamo hosted an incredibly lavish Resort 2012 runway show at the Duke Mansion in New York City. Leah was on-hand to document the extravaganza, but now we're offering you an even more exclusive look with this behind-the-scenes video, featuring everyone from Eva Mendes to Karlie Kloss. Enjoy!
Eva Mendes, Freida Pinto and Scott Speedman Turn Out For Ferragamo's Wildly Extravagant Resort Show
Today is a good day for Ferragamo. The label debuted on the Milan stock exchange this morning to a strong showing. Yesterday afternoon, the storied 83-year-old Florence house presented their first ever show in the US. And, almost as if Ferragamo knew they'd richer the next day, they pulled out all the stops for this resort show. Ferragamo presented their 2012 resort collection in the grandest of settings--the James B Duke mansion on New York's upper east side, former home to heiress Doris Duke. (It's now owned by NYU and houses an art history library for grad students--the space is reason enough to apply.) Models descended from a marble staircase (not an easy feat in sky high platform wedges) as a bevy of A-list celebrities--including Eva Mendes, Frieda Pinto, Emma Roberts and Scott Speedman (who was there with girlfriend Theresa Palmer, creepy stalker photo proof below)--watched on.
