Vogue Paris Throws A Dinner for Gucci Designer Frida Giannini

The stars were out in Paris last night at the Hotel de la Rochefoucauld Doudeauville. Vogue Paris threw a high-fashion fête for Gucci designer Frida Giannini and a slew of stylish starlets came out to celebrate.

Outgoing editor Carine Roitfeld was in attendance in a sexy long black gown with sheer and cut-out detailing. Frida Giannini went for a tuxedo taking on the exploding suiting trend and Jessica Alba went for high glam in a one-shouldered grey sequin dress with blush satin pumps. She was seen out and about earlier in the day at the Gucci boutique near the Champs-Élysées.

Recently chosen face of G-Star, Gemma Arterton went for a hippie chic look in a dress with crochet detail from the Spring 2011 collection. Diane Kruger chose a dress from the same collection, hers black and gold and embellished to the max. It is almost rare to see her step out in anything other than Chanel, but this look was a great choice for her. Model and social fixture, Poppy Delevigne opted for all black and let her red lip and leopard bag serve as pops of color. Supermodel Laetitia Casta went simple and chic with a floor-length one-shoulder gown.

Tron star Olivia Wilde was another celebrity to pick from the Spring 2011 collection. She added some color to the event in an emerald green and turquoise color-block jumpsuit, which she accessorized with a purple clutch, a gold statement necklace and a gold “Vene” ring from Lucifer vir Honestus. Star of the Spring 2011 advertising campaign, Joan Smalls, went for all gray in a sleeveless sheath and thigh-high suede boots. Model and fashion royalty, Vanessa Traina, chose all-black in true Parisian fashion.

Last but not least are the EICs: Emmanuelle Alt and Anna Wintour. Alt rarely wears anything but neutrals and she did just that in a long black fur and trousers. Wintour loves a printed knee-length shift and she didn’t stray from her style at the dinner.

We’ll be seeing these fashionable faces again with Fashion Weeks all around the world just weeks away.

Paris, POSHGLAM







Zac Posen Might Head to Paris for Spring 2011

00370m zp 200x300 Zac Posen Might Head to Paris for Spring 2011Zac Posen knows how to make women feel beautiful. His pieces accentuate every curve and are made of the most luxurious fabrics. His Target collection was a godsend and I have been wearing it nonstop, especially the flirty baby pink number. Hot off the heels of that launch is the news that he might be showing his Spring 2011 collection in Paris.

The reasoning behind this move? “They understand my clothes.” as WWD reports. I am little shocked as I completely and totally understand Posen’s designs and love them. To show in Paris is to show with the likes of Galliano and Lagerfeld, but isn’t little old New York worth something too?

It is a smart move as more Europeans buy Posen’s designs than anyone else and at the end of the day it is not only about art and creativity but also about money. Success doesn’t come easy and with the recession comes some difficult choices. Though it will be sad to see Posen go, I will follow him no matter which Fashion Week he chooses.

Some looks from what could be Posen’s last collection in New York below, Fall 2010.
