Christopher Kane Gets All The Girls: Joy, Sara, Bee, Nicole…And Barbie


Versus is sponsoring the Art of Elysium’s second annual Bright Lights dance party this Friday, which means not only will Donatella Versace and Christopher Kane be in the house, but also that the label’s tiny cupcake-foil minidresses will be in large supply at Milk Studios. While hostesses Joy Bryant, Sara Moonves, Bee Shaffer, and Nicole Vecchiarelli do some last-minute vying for the numbers below (our personal suggestions from a Fall show full of worthy contenders), Kane will be playing guest of honor at Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Center, where he will treat the young patients to a workshop in designing and making clothes for Barbies. “We’ll cut the fabric from scratch, use simple shapes, and glue on gemstones,” the designer told us. “I’m sure they’re gonna love it.”

To buy a $150 ticket to the dance—which supports the charitable work of other art, Hollywood, and fashion world types in hospitals across the country—visit It won’t be an entirely selfless gesture: Limited-edition T-shirts featuring the original Bruce Weber Versus ad campaign (left) will be available for sale at the event, and items from Kane’s Fall collection for Versus will be available by special order.
