Here's Jean Bean's commentary on her much more fashionable day:
Fashion Group International's Night of Stars is the biggest award night in NY fashion after the CFDAs, and it includes European designers, whereas the CFDAs do not.
Kate Bosworth presented his award in a feathered dress I had my eye on. Sigh. But I got to spend an hour one-on-one with him that morning. He is a dream to interview. Articulate, humble, friendly, considerate, professional, perfect.
The coat I wore was super chic but much more voluminous than I'm used to. Here it is on the runway. The shoes and necklace are pure amazing and well worth any discomfort they might have caused.
I also borrowed a killer spiked bangle but didn't wear
it, because I would have dropped it all night and probably broken some glassware in the process. The dress is my own, Isaac Mizrahi.
During the cocktail hour I mingled with other editors, designers, retailers and execs. At one point I chatted with Ashley Olsen about her new book. She later presented to Francisco Costa. Yigal Azrouel thanked me for all my recent editorial support, and the next day sent me a cool belt!!!!
It was a long night, with 13 awards. Karl Lagerfeld presented to the Costume Institute's Harold Koda. J.Lo and Prince presented to Donatella Versace. Christian Louboutin, Philippe Starck, Harvey Weinstein and Barneys' Simon Doonan gave the wittiest speeches. ILMAO when Simon said the Sozzani sisters (of Vogue Italia and 10 Corso Como) needed to get back to the Marriott Marquis in time for speed dating in the revolving lounge. As if.
Best dressed: Donatella, Bosworth, Ashley, and net-a-porter founder Natalie Massenet.
EEEEEEEE! What a dream of an event, no??? Even more fab than her last big one.
I may be biased but I think JB makes much better arm candy for Mr. Costa. Sniff.
knows the over the shoulder pose and would make a perfect party companion for the Kaiser.
