Runway to Reality
A Supe-Filled Supper for Anthony Vaccarello
It was a night of firsts for Anthony Vaccarello. There was the new shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti, which debuted on his runway. There was Karlie Kloss, who staged a catwalk comeback at his show after a much blogged-about absence from New York, London, and Milan. And—maybe most memorably—there was Caviar Kaspia. Zanotti hosted a dinner for Vaccarello there, and the designer's supermodel posse—Kloss, Anja Rubik, and Arizona Muse—all turned up in looks from the new collection. Kanye West was in the house, too.
The slinky, deconstructed dress Karlie wore didn't leave much room for caviar-smothered potato, but the girl was game. Picnic table feasts of blue crabs with Old Bay seasoning are a family tradition at her grandmother's Chesapeake Bay home, she reported. Turns out Karlie's a bit of a foodie. She's just back from her first trip to Thailand—business and pleasure, she said—and she apparently gourmeted her way through the place. "The seafood was the best in the world, but there were bugs, I think, too, and I'm still a bit queasy from those." Queasy or not, she celebrated her return to this culinary capital by cleaning her plate.
