Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana hosted a party in Milan for Justin Bieber.

Wu Gives Women What They Want

-------


Jason Wu blew into a particularly blustery L.A. yesterday for a pre-party to celebrate his Spring 2010 trunk show at Neiman Marcus. “It’s such a different world out here and the weather is so nice—except for the wind,” said Wu. “But I have no hair, so I don’t have to worry.” If the hairdos of guests like Jessica Stroup, Lily Collins, Amber Heard, and Katie Cassidy were on the artfully undone side, their frocks were, in signature Wu fashion, perfectly pulled together. “I saw a dress that I wanted to wear for Cannes, so I requested that they send it over for me to try on,” remarked hostess Diane Kruger. “Jason showed up personally, which I thought was so sweet, and fit me right there. We’ve been friends ever since.” With half of the Neiman Marcus stock already sold before his personal appearance even started, Wu reflected on his success. “It’s been a big year,” he said. “All women want is to look beautiful and I’m here for them.”

Zac Posen’s Western Adventure

-------

Call it an early birthday party. Just hours shy of ringing in his 29th, Zac Posen took a break from back-to-back sales appointments, a client brunch and trunk show at Neiman’s in Beverly Hills, to hold an impromptu fête and fashion show at Bar Marmont. In between showing off the Spring 2010 collection—applause was especially heavy for look 36—Posen caught up with his L.A.-based friends like Rosson Crow (pictured at left with Posen), the Like’s Tennessee Thomas, and Zoe Saldana, who wore the designer’s sculpted Lily Pad Lotus print dress.

Teen phenom Lily Collins took a spin on the designer’s arm right as L.A. mainstay Anthony Kiedis walked in and headed straight to a table where the motley crew of Fred Durst, David Spade, and Ron Burkle were holding court. Even though Posen was headed straight back to his Tribeca studio over the weekend, he did make time for at least a little pleasure on his business trip out west. When pressed, he finally admitted, “I actually went to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the [Grauman’s] Chinese Theater earlier today. I had to see how small Judy Garland’s feet were.”

Rad Hourani Gets His Wings, Loves Helmut

-------

If you’re a fashion person of a certain age, you probably had a Helmut Lang flashback at Rad Hourani’s show. The young Canadian designer had sewn straps inside jackets and vests à la vintage Lang, which he showed shrugged off shoulders and flapping like tailored black angel wings. “I’ve never done it before but I loved it when Helmut did it,” said Hourani. “I think everyone should do it. It’s such an easy, comfortable thing.” For Spring, Hourani continued his unmistakable unisex, monochromatic, clean-and-lean look. And as such, he’s quite pointedly not concerned with change, another reason he feels a connection to our favorite ex-designer Austrian. “Someone said to me, ‘Did you know that Helmut always stuck to this thing and was criticized for not changing enough?’ ” Hourani said. “And I was like, ‘That was genius.’ ” Still, new for Spring was the addition of silver in a trim of chains, steel zips, and an almost robotic silver wool. Currently, Hourani’s biggest retailer is Holt Renfrew, who is considering adding it for men’s, while Seven is his only stockist in New York. But at Monday’s show were some new retail faces from Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman/Neiman Marcus, and Colette. No decisions were made but as Neiman’s Roopal Patel said, “We’re here. We’re interested.”
