On DAY 1 of
New York Fashion Week, there were so many parties that it even the most seasoned nightlifer would have had trouble keeping up. Here is our report from the frontlines:
Marc Jacobs hosted a Studio 54 themed book party for
Gloss, which celebrated ‘70s photographer Chris von Wangenheim. “No flat shoes," the designer joked beforehand. He was quoting
the now-infamous dress code for the fete which also banned matte lips and “natural looks.” And though Jacobs is often seen as a style rebel, he followed his own rules rather well, sporting 3.5-inch heels from his newest collection, plus a shiny faux fur coat from Saint Laurent. “I’m only staying at the party for a couple of minutes,” he confessed, “because then I have to go back to work. We have a show next week, which I hope you’ve heard about!”
True to his word, Jacobs jetted from the bash just before 10pm, though many of his past runway stars—Cat McNeill, Coco Rocha, and
Andreja Pejik among them. “The Studio was like a Cloud Nine for creative people,” said Pat Cleveland, a ‘70s supermodel. “You need a place to jump and scream after work, and for models and designers, that place has always been the dance floor!”
Meanwhile in Brooklyn, Refinery29 celebrated their 10-year anniversary with an "interactive funhouse celebrtating style and culture." On hand to join in the revelry was Alexa Chung, Solange Knowles, Rose McGowan, Baddie Winkle (who was wearing a marijuana print dress!), and
Drew Barrymore. The latter admitted to Yahoo Style that she loves the current
#girlsquad trend. "
Well, growing up I could see how some people would either influence or suggest to pit women against each other and it is the stupidest thing ever. Like girls together is so powerful, so important, such a good feeling. I just always loved my girlfriends. They were always my heroes, so I’ve just been a big fan of girls and now I have two daughters!"
Back in Manhattan, the bold faced names came out for Ellen DeGeneres's ED launch at Bergdorf Goodman. (We're looking at you Justin Timberlake and Kimye!) And Rihanna — who was rumored to attend the Adam Selman show but didn't make it — made a late night stop at the Edition Hotel for a private dinner with Pharrell and friends. The pop star wore blue lipstick and a dress over pants, which is already emerging as one of Spring 2016's burgeoning trends. How does she do it?
