Blasblog From Paris: Bonne Année Lily D.

-------

Last night was a good one for Lily Donaldson. She nabbed the finale look at Givenchy, a shocking two-piece number that had giant black removable shoulder pads. Then a few hours later, clad in a pair of PVC zip trousers, she found herself folded behind a table at Kaviar Kaspia with a gaggle of girlfriends (Heidi Mount, Dasha Zhukova and Lara Stone, and Luigi Murenu and George Cortina, who admitted they were girlfriends, too), celebrating her 22nd birthday. First, there was the obligatory fashion nostalgia— Donaldson complained about the time Cortina made her crawl through a burning hot Nevada desert with all the protection of an evening gown—and then it was dancing at the Chacha Club, where Josephine de la Baume was deejaying. Turns out, if Lara Stone hadn’t been such an impatient fetus, Tuesday would have been a dual supermodel birthday, since it was technically the Dutch beauty’s due date. (She came out a month early.) But still, a generous Donaldson let her blow at a candle, too.

Indochine: Hot For The Holidays?

-------

Sure, Indochine’s sultry lighting, tropical decor, and impossibly attractive staff had its heyday in the eighties, but there’s clearly still some allure left in the old girl. Spotted dining there last night, at separate tables: Interview editorial director Fabien Baron with Paris Vogue stylist Ludivine Poiblanc; Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld celebrating his birthday with a big group of friends including Stavros Niarchos, Lily Donaldson, and sister Julia; and artist Tom Sachs with an unidentified friend.

Blasblog: Visionaire Pops Up, Bubbles Over

-------

Theory: Visionaire might just have the best parties in fashiondom. Exhibit A: Last night was perhaps one of the best fêtes yet: a celebration of the über-mag’s collaboration with Krug on its 55th edition. (This time it’s a series of pop-up books designed by the likes of Steven Klein and Steven Meisel.) The Champagne powerhouse took over Tom Sachs’ Soho studio, stocking it full of Champagne and caviar. (Editor’s note: That’s the kind of home invasion we’d fully welcome.) The party drew Diane von Furstenberg, Margherita Missoni, Vito Schnabel, Stavros Niarchos, and Luke Grimes, but what kept them was a surprise performance by the Harlem Gospel Choir, who barreled into the studio singing Beyoncé′s “Put a Ring on It.” Mario Testino, front and center with Visionaire‘s Stephen Gan, shouted for a “dance-off” at one point, with Tiana, the lead singer of that particular tune. With the champers running like water, there was one potential danger: the millions of dollars of artwork lining the walls. “I’m so nervous I’m going to touch something I’m not supposed to,” sighed Lily Donaldson, who came with her boyfriend, Vladimir Roitfeld. “Like over there it says ashtray. But is it really? Am I going to burn down a million-dollar piece of art?” She didn’t, but only because Natalia Vodianova showed up and sequestered her crew to a corner. “I’m only here for one night,” she said. “So I have to catch up with everyone right now.”

In Milan, It Looks Like Snow

-------

Moncler will celebrate its first boutique in Milan, at 7 Via della Spiga, with a cocktail party tonight. Designed by Gilles & Boissier to evoke a chalet, complete with wood paneling and fir cones scattered about, it’s the deluxe outerwear brand’s eighth store worldwide. Next up is Aspen, a natural fit with its ski resort, followed by Hong Kong. Manhattanites will have to do their shopping long distance, or visit Bergdorf’s, which stocks the label. Or, consider this third option: Gap. Its gray-flannel puffer (the one on Lily D. in the ads) is a dead ringer for a jacket on the racks of Moncler’s new shop.
