Last night, British Vogue hosted a soiree in association with Vertu to kick off the Vogue Festival. What is the Vogue Festival, you ask? Well, according to the website, it’s “a unique event where you can see and hear some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, including international designers, models, photographers, broadcasters and journalists.” Translation: panel discussions, parties, and pretty, pretty people.
Yesterday’s guests of honor were none other than Net-A-Porter’s Natalie Massenet, fashion illustrator David Downton, and designer Erdem Moralioglu, who participated in a round table discussion on the topic ”Does Technology Shape Desire?” moderated by British Vogue editor in chief Alexandra Shulman and Vertu president Perry Oosting. The conversation actually sounds like it was rather fascinating, but unfortunately we are one very large pond away from the host city, and thus will have to settle for looking at all of the red carpet pictures from the event.
Chanel brand ambassador Caroline Sieber wore Chanel, natch, while Pixie Geldof rocked a very Eighties Versace-esque black-and-gold look and model/Vogue contributor Laura Bailey sported a fab Burberry number. Also present were many well-dressed British models, actresses, and socialites who you may or may not have heard of. Our vote for best in show, however, has to go to Erdem, just for being adorable (hey, no one ever said this was a precise science.)
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
