American Express threw a huge splashy party at Opening Ceremony‘s SoHo flagship last night. They were celebrating the launch of the Opening Ceremony Elvis collection–their Fall 2013 extravaganza of variously Elvis Presley-themed pieces–and, being a huge Elvis fan, I had to get downtown.

It’s a Gwyneth Paltrow extravaganza lately! She’s got a new cookbook to promote (the recipes of which involve no food), she’s got a lot of food not to eat, she’s got to talk about how all the foods she’s not eating saved her marriage and… Iron Man 3 just came out, so she has to show up on red carpets with really shiny hair, which is something she does quite well.

Oh! And it had a nearly naked Kate Moss! More
The Fall 2013 Givenchy show walked in Paris yesterday and, predictably, a shitload of famous people stopped by. Some glittery front row regulars (Kanye West, with girlfriend Kim Kardashian in tow, Amanda Seyfried, newly minted fashion darling Jessica Chastain, etc) and some industry big hitters (Carine Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo) were all in attendance.
How many of them wore sunglasses at night? More

It’s the moment* we’ve all been waiting for: Raf Simons‘ debut haute couture collection for Christian Dior walked in Paris yesterday. On a set covered from floor to ceiling with beautiful flowers, Raf sent out a collection of deceptively minimal femininity molded into the house of Dior’s iconic silhouettes. More
