Her Mosshart Belongs to Hedi
The Kills' frontwoman, fresh from the front row of Saint Laurent, spins Equipment's fashion-week bash
Despite an early showing by Carine Roitfeld, whose fete for the second issue of CR Fashion Book tonight will wrap up the Fall collections in high style (Marie-Agnès Gillot, a ballerina at the Paris Opera Ballet, will perform, a nod to the issue's dance theme), it took a little time for the Equipment party to work up some heat. But that all changed around midnight, when The Kills' Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince rolled up to the turntables and the whole place hit the dance floor. Spotted among the crowd were Carine Roitfeld, Leigh Lezark, Jessica Alba, Bianca Brandolini d'Adda, and Jessica Stam. Mosshart, who hours before had taken in the latest collection from Saint Laurent, had serious words of worship for Hedi Slimane. "The show was mind-blowing, it was wicked, brilliant. That man can do no wrong in my eyes—he makes everything I want to wear."
Otherwise, the indie duo is following up their star turn in this season's Equipment ads with the serious business of writing a new album. "Now is a time for creativity," she said.
