Friday, October 1


When I first heard that Vogue Paris was throwing a masquerade ball to celebrate their 90th anniversary I simply thought of a chic party with the best crowd in a decadently glamourous venue and the odd mask. What I didn't know was that it would take place during Paris Fashion Week and that most of its guests would take the theme seriously. Following the inspiration from the magazine's October issue, many models and editors showed up in lace masks paired up with sexy dresses with hints of baroque. Everybody was there and the Vogue Paris team tweeted themselves silly. Tweets like "Emmanuelle Alt et Peter Dundas dansent joue contre joue sur la piste de danse"* or "Emmanuelle Alt danse avec Anja Rubik sur la piste"** made it sound like the party of the century. Or, at least, my party of the century. But nothing, not Carine as a leopard or Julia as a vamp or Olivier Lalanne, were a match for Anna dello Russo. The queen and muse of all things fashion did what she does best: dress up. She wore a custom Pucci white dress (kudos to Peter Dundas) that she accompanied with a long white wig and mask in the same colour. The final touch was an incredible Trojan inspired feathered head piece by Gareth Pugh. Talk about decadent.
I'm off.
