Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Julianna Margulies, Lucy Liu. L’Wren Scott has been on a roll lately, and tonight, at the world premiere of Sherlock Holmes in London, she scored another coup. We love Heather Graham in Scott’s body-hugging ivory polka-dot and lace minidress. As for the button-up booties? In our view, they add an edge we don’t usually associate with Rollergirl, but we’re guessing they’ll divide opinion. Where do you stand on the look?
K. Cooper Ray, the dashing gent behind men’s style and etiquette site Socialprimer.com, celebrated the debut of his new brick-and-mortar shop on Wednesday night, welcoming guests such as Lucy Liu, Perrey Reeves, Amanda Ross, Jamie Tisch, and Crystal Lourd. “Everyone’s trying to grab me, but all I want to do is look around and shop,” said co-host Lulu De Kwiatkowski. “It’s just fantastic and harkens back to a classic time.” The diminutive Social Primer space, which is located inside West Hollywood floral haven Lily Lodge, features bar sets, monogrammed luggage tags, etiquette books, chess sets, and custom-order extras such as playing cards, stationery, and cocktail napkins. “Isn’t it wonderful?” asked Ray of the dress code, which called for bow ties. “They just make people happy, so why not?”
Jason Wu is on a roll. Just this year, he won Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award and made it to the top ten in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. Then last night, MySpace Fashion and Lucy Liu hosted a trunk show and sneak preview of his Spring 2009 collection at Satine in Los Angeles. “My favorite look is the citron embroidered dot dress,” said Liu, clad in an ivory organza Wu frock with French knots and Swarovski crystal bursts. An enviable coterie of fans like January Jones, China Chow (pictured here with the designer), Rachel Zoe, Amanda Goldberg, Cameron Silver, and Kate Mara all showed up to support the designer, who himself was snappily turned out for the occasion in a high-low mix of Jil Sander and Topshop. “This year has been surreal,” said Wu, whose very first visit to Los Angeles was April of this year. “It’s so beautiful and sunny, I’ve thought about moving here, but the only drawback is I don’t know how to drive, which is a bit of a problem.” Satine will be the only Los Angeles boutique to stock Wu’s collection, and come fall there will be some exclusive designs for the store. “It is beyond an honor,” gushed co-owner Jeannie Lee, in a Jason Wu top and a pair of shoes straight off the runway. “They’re a little too big, but who cares!”
