“So much better than last year” was the chorus heard time and time again at the Whitney Art Party and auction last night at Skylight at Moynihan Station. Presented by MaxMara, with co-chairs Maria Giulia Maramotti (MaxMara's director of retail, and granddaughter of the brand's founder), entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman, and actress/model Nichole Galicia, the event managed to raise over $450,000 for the Whitney’s Independent Study Program. A fashion brand getting behind an art institution; we support that.
Last night, every ambassadress, socialite, and fidèle in the known universe graced the Manhattan social scene to fete the 80th anniversary of Chanel's “Bijoux de Diamants” fine jewelry collection.
Daniella Helayel and Camilla Al Fayed's spring collection for Issa had a "Garden of Eden" theme. That meant bright color and tropical prints--a reflection of Helayel's native Brazil. Her signature wrapped jersey numbers and pantsuits were done up in loud tropical floral and bird prints--though there were still a few solid floor length jersey dresses--low cut and wrapped at the waist--that we could see on Helayel's most famous fan, Duchess Kate Middleton.

Monday was a good day for both clothes and celeb spotting at the London shows. While London front row faves Irina Lazareanu and Harley Viera-Newton chatted at Pringle of Scotland, Tilda Swinton quietly and gracefully swanned in and took her seat. She's completely stunning, and rather unassuming in real life, posing for pictures then quietly sitting down. And tall! Pringle should have begged her to take to the runway for them. Speaking of the runway, you'll recall that Pringle has had some creative director upheaval. Clare Waight Keller went to Chloé early in the summer; this is Alistair Carr's first collection for the label. For his first outing, he mined the 1960s and the Pringle archive, specifically riffing on the twinset.

Ever notice how sometimes the most stylish girls at fashion parties are behind the DJ booth? Well, for the most part, that's no happy accident. Over the past few years, it seems a crop of young, well-dressed fashion girls has emerged as the go-to djs for fashion parties. Brands these days want girls who look the part. What's interesting about them is that almost none of them are just djs for a living. Most have some other role in the fashion or entertainment industry that occupies their daylight hours, while their nights are spent looking cute with headphones as their main accessory. Tonight, for example, we're headed to a party that model/actress/musician Solange Knowles is dj'ing. The following 10 girls have varying degrees of actual DJ talent, but what they do have in common is an innate sense of style that we all want to emulate. Here's a little guide to who these girls are.
Sebastian, maker of incredible hair care products, hosted a bunch of beauty editors for a DJ'ing class, with Harley Viera-Newton as the honorary hostess. Harley is, of course, a DJ/model/It Girl, and also the face (head?) of Sebastian. Sebastian is launching a digital lookbook on August 1 with a "mixology" theme, hence the DJ reference (although cocktails come to mind, too). What I learned from my DJ lesson is that Harley looks incredible in leopard sheaths and I suck at DJ'ing. Anyway. The look book teaches you how to achieve certain looks--which are stunning--using a cocktail of Sebastian products. Pros were on hand to walk us through the styles and I got to speak to the inimitable Thomas Dunkin, who's styled celebs, editorials, and runway looks galore. He was a font of knowledge. Here are some of his words of wisdom:
Chanel front rows and party lines, especially over the past few years, always draw an elite group of Chanel-clad ladies who might collectively be referred to as “it girls.” Actresses, models, socialites and DJs make up this group but what they all seem to have in common is beauty, great style and some kind of cultural relevance that Karl or someone at Chanel recognizes as fitting with the Chanel brand. That and the ability to look amazing in Chanel and always catch our attention. About two years ago, Chanel threw a dinner party and announced an “official list” of five Chanel ambassadors: Leigh Lezark, Jen Brill, Poppy Delevingne, Vanessa Traina, and Caroline Sieber. Others, like Elisa Sednaoui and, back in the day, Ines de la Fressange, have been casually referred to as Karl’s muses. But, there are still others, like Rachel Bilson, Alexa Chung and newest and youngest member Elle Fanning (!), whose “roles” in the Chanel world were undefined, until now. A tip sheet for last night’s Chanel couture show, revealed by the Telegraph’s Belinda White, literally places bold names expected to attend into a carefully ranked multi-tier system. The categories range from “Japanese celebrities” to “Chanel Ambassadress.” Here they are in what I'm guessing is ascending order.
