The upper echelons of fashion know all too well that any bash that toasts Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz is going to be one for the books, and they dress the part. Last night in Paris, the Le Trianon Theater became home to the Lancome Show by Alber Elbaz in celebration of the launch of the designer’s first beauty collection.
On hand were the fashion world’s tres chic-est in a bevy of Lanvin confections, such as Carine Roitfeld who looked ravishing in a long-sleeved black gown dripping in gold embellishment, or photographer Ellen von Unwerth who looked effortless in a black top with siren-red polka dot pants and her signature bleach blonde coif. One of Alber’s most adoring models Daria Werbowy was also in attendance looking sultry in ruched beige body-con dress.
English actress Gemma Arterton showed off her curves in a black dress from the Spring 2013 collection that boasted one very large ruffle on the shoulder, while street style star Miroslava Duma came in an ivory cage dress with delicate lace choker detail. We were also happy to see the legendary Catherine Deneuve, who has really been making her mark on the scene as of late, looking classic in an ageless LBD. The guests might have dressed for Alber, but his designs also served as some over-the-top concert attire as Scottish musician Sharleen Spiteri and rock band Texas performed at the bash.
Feast your eyes on all the party looks below, as well as the man of the hour looking darling as ever. Seriously, he’s never not melting our hearts.
