Après the CFDAs, More Parties
The celebrating didn't stop for International Award winner Raf Simons when the CFDAs wrapped last night. Dior CEO Sidney Toledano hosted a party in the designer's honor at the Ladurée shop on West Broadway, and the sprawling Parisian-style café had Simons and co. experiencing some French joie de vivre. We spied Keri Russell and Karlie Kloss ogling the macaron case, Russell telling Kloss, "I mean, they are just so good, how can you not?"
A host of CFDA winners, nominees, and past honorees turned out, including Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow of Public School, who told us that despite their Menswear Designer of the Year win tonight there will be no day off. "School will not be canceled tomorrow," Chow said. "Public School is definitely in session. Winning just makes us want to work that much harder." Swarovski Menswear Award winner Tim Coppens, for his part, was almost awestruck. "It's huge for me to even be nominated, but when you win—I mean, whoa, I won a prize—it's really something special. And to be here tonight with all the other winners, it's like I'm really part of something; it's so vindicating."
After midnight, many guests bid adieu to Ladurée and headed to the Top of the Standard for a party that was busy until well after 3 a.m. Prabal Gurung, Joan Smalls, and Olivier Theyskens were in the crowd. Pamela Love told Style.com she was actually happy not to be nominated, to have no crazy nerves. "I'm just happy to get dressed up." She spent the evening dancing with her friend, Swarovski Accessories Designer of the Year Irene Neuwirth.
