When in Monaco

Usually, people clear out of a fashion show as fast as the exits allow, but not at Louis Vuitton's Cruise presentation at Monaco's Place du Palais on Saturday night. While Nicolas Ghesquière adjourned to the Palace to conduct interviews (a rare honor for a non-royal, we were told), guests lingered over champagne and hors d'oeuvres in a clear plastic tent below a sunset that turned the Riviera sky a brilliant shade of pink not far off from the first look on Ghesquière's runway. In the mix: Adèle Exarchopoulos, Pat McGrath, Juergen Teller, Philip Crangi, and Susie Lau. Only the celebrities due at one of the evening's Film Festival parties in Cannes beat hasty retreats. Their helicopters were waiting. Much later, the party moved to Jimmy'z, Monte Carlo's legendary nightclub. We didn't spot her Serene Highness or the Prince, although the latter was rumored to be attending, but Ghesquière was there well past 2 a.m., and, yes, he did take a few turns on the dance floor.
