François Nars, Party Monster-------
Last night, we bore witness to one of the more epic beauty-and-fashion parties we’ve attended to date. Together in one room were supermodels old and new and rag-trade megastars (see Theyskens, Olivier, and Jacobs, Marc), not to mention one very bedazzled Amanda Lepore—all of whom gathered to celebrate the launch of François Nars’ new photo book, 15×15. The highlight of the night, aside from seeing Nars’ beautiful portraits projected in super-size onto a huge white wall, was watching Daphne Guinness take the bathroom stairs in a pair of completely impractical but entirely unforgettable Alexander McQueen platforms, with not a hand on the banister for assisted balance. It was impressive, to put it mildly. Click here to read our complete party coverage.
