The Fendi O’ party has become such a fashion week staple—usually with a surprise performance—that when the label hadn’t planned anything for this Paris Fall season, it was disappointment all around. Enter last night’s little get-together, called F’, at Le Montana. It may have been a Lagerfeld-free affair, but that didn’t seem to bother the mix of models and curiously cute French boys dancing in the smoky, sweaty, and packed-like-sardines basement of the club. Alexa Chung was on the tables, and mixing it up on the dance floor last night were Jefferson Hack, Anouck Lepère (dancing separately, gossipers), Isabeli Fontana and Eniko Mihalik (left), and Alexia Niedzielski.
Jessica Stam and her stylist J. Logan Horne took care of the live-music element themselves, having just come from seeing Katy Perry play at The Senate—just part of a pretty enviable-sounding day that included lunch at Ralph’s and a visit with Azzedine Alaïa between fittings. “We always visit him when we come to Paris,” said Stam. “He’s one of the reasons I’m still modeling.”
On a night of many parties, this was just a stop for many. Alexander Wang and his friend-slash-interiors-guru Ryan Korban—in Paris hunting for a showroom space that Wang hopes to have open by Resort season in May—arrived after Alice Dellal’s live performance-cum-soirée had died down. “It’s another reason to come to Paris,” Wang explained. “Though I will never have enough reasons to come to Paris.” And then it was on to the next party. “Are you going to Stella?” he asked.
