Suddenly our Ikea furniture is looking a little lackluster. Even the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofa we shelled out a month’s salary for isn’t standing up. That’s because we’ve caught a glimpse of décor designed by Angela Missoni and Chiara Ferragamo.
Last night, Ferragamo took over the upper level of the McKittrick Hotel and its lush rooftop bar, Gallow Green, to celebrate the launch of L’Icona, the brand’s online tribute to their iconic Vara shoe, which is celebrating 35 years on the feet of stylish women the world over. After sharing a very tight elevator up with Lily Aldridge and a gaggle of friends, we took in a performance by Vogue-anointed It Girl Sophie Auster, ogled the charming photos of Claiborne Swanson Frank, which were artfully strewn across tables and hung from clothing lines, and surveyed the very glamorous crowd.
It’s quite possible that Elizabeth Olsen has had the most flawless red carpet debuts of any starlet in recent history, and her turn out at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of “Martha Marcy May Marlene” is no exception. Olsen accessorized a red, navy, and purple floral print gown by Erdem with a sparkly Ferragamo clutch and Jason Wu heels.
On Thursday night, former Victoria’s Secret model and current Kanye West flame Selita Ebanks joined some of New York’s biggest names at Ferragamo’s midtown flagship for a private cocktail party benefitting New Yorkers for Children. And while the cause was great, we think Ebanks’ ensemble was greater.
We’re still having some difficulty wrapping our heads around the chaotic organized fabulousness that is Fashion’s Night Out — it’s happening this Friday night! This year the nighttime shopping extravaganza has been ramped up with more stores open and more events to cover, and we’re going to try and see as much of it as we can — without driving ourselves crazy, of course. From Midtown to the West Village, SoHo to the Meatpacking District, here’s where you’ll find us on Fashion’s Night Out.
Johnny Depp has officially set the awesome present bar really high. According to an interview in Marie Claire UK’s August issue, the star gifted his longtime partner, Vanessa Paradis, a pair of Marilyn Monroe’s shoes.
Last night, we attended Ferragamo’s launch party for their new women’s fragrance, Attimo, held on the roof of New York’s latest spot-to-be-seen Standard Hotel. And while the views were certainly beautiful, the first thing to catch our eye was the face of the fragrance, Dree Hemingway and the metallic pewter, Halston-esque dress she wore, the plunging v-neck of which she paired with an olive green bandeau top.
