Even models get sick sometimes. Model Gigi Hadid was unable to join this year’s crop of CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists in Paris due to illness, but the model’s friend and fellow runway regular Emily Ratajkowski graciously stepped in to take her place at this year’s Americans in Paris cocktail party. The annual soiree, an occasion for famous faces and fashionable friends to meet the newest names in design, was a grand celebration—the 15th!—and was supported by Diesel and Tomorrow London.

As the designers chatted with Alexa Chung, Karolina Kurkova, and Karen Elson, they sipped on Perrier-Jouët Champagne while past and present fashion funders including Aurora James, Gigi Burris, Laura Vassar Brock, Paul Andrew, Victor Glemaud, and Wes Gordon nibbled on treats from Stoney Clove Bakery.
