A Look Inside Burberry’s Celebratory Night in Shanghai

-------

Now more so than ever, the fashion industry has its eye on Asia, and Burberry is the latest house to tout its continued expansion eastward. To celebrate the launch of its new Shanghai flagship, Burberry Kerry Centre, the British house invited more than 1,500 guests to an evening of interactive films, live music, and dancing. By now you’ve seen the Instagrams of Burberry favorite Cara Delevingne flying over the audience, umbrella extended like a modern-day Mary Poppins. But that was just the beginning of the festivities. British musicians Ed Harcourt and Paloma Faith performed. Of course, Christopher Bailey’s Fall ’14 Bloomsbury Girls collection had a repeat performance. And as for the boys, they were outfitted in the brand’s signature trenchcoats or neatly tailored suits and checkered scarves. Watch a video of them dancing here.

Style Hunter: Evening GlovesAside from maybe a tiara, nothing heightens the glamour of a full-on evening look quite like a pair of gloves. Eye-catching gauntlets turned up on the Lanvin, Gucci, and Oscar de la Renta Fall runways. And at last week’s high-wattage Met Gala, divas from Madonna to BeyoncĂ© to Paloma Faith covered up their digits with statement-making pairs of varying lengths. Kim Kardashian’s custom Givenchy number was the talk of the town, but what really piqued our interest was the gown’s built-in gloves, which prompted speculation that Kim was concealing an engagement ring (you know Kanye would go all out with a rock for his baby mama).

 

We predict we’ll be seeing more gloves at Cannes. Here, a show of hands.

 

Girl Power: The Fourth Annual DVF Awards

-------

Friday night marked the fourth annual DVF awards, and newfangled British crooner Paloma Faith perhaps summed up the evening best. “It’s important that we as women get together and celebrate each other rather than what sometimes happens, or what is sometimes encouraged in the media—to be against each other,” said the singer, who accessorized her outfit with a statement-making necklace that read, “FEMINIST.”

Held at the United Nations, the annual event—which was hosted by von Furstenberg and Tina Brown—honors five women who have exhibited courage and leadership in their respective fields, and who have helped to advance the lives of other women in the process. This year’s winners—including Robin Roberts, Natalia Vodianova, Sunitha Kirshnan, Andeisha Farid of the Afghan Child Education and Care Organization, and Tammy Tibbetts of She’s the First—will all receive $50,000 grants from von Furstenberg’s foundation for continued charitable work and development. And everyone from Olympian Gabrielle Douglas—a.k.a. the “Flying Squirrel”—and Olivia Wilde to Mario Testino, Fran Lebowitz, and Gloria Steinem turned out to toast the winners.

Despite her broken arm (she opened her introduction to the crowd by emphatically stating “I will never. Go skiing. Again,” referring to last week’s accident in Aspen), von Furstenberg shone with as much poise as ever. “Style is about confidence. Look at Robin Roberts—she just went through the most horrible year—but her beauty, her light inside, is so big, and she’s beautiful. That’s the real beauty.”
