Last night was a busy event night in LA. I started my evening at the Decades, Hal Rubenstein “100 Unforgettable Dresses” book launch hosted by Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver.
The book features a beautiful collection of unforgettable dresses. Including Bob Mackie’s, “Starlett” O’Hara dress so brilliantly worn by Carol Burnett in what was probably one of TV’s funniest moments and several magnificent red carpet looks by Cate Blanchett featuring her Garden of Eden Gown by John Galliano, her Gown of Amor by Armani Privé, her Sterling-Strapped Gown by Dries Van Noten and her “Where Eagles Fly” Gown by Alexander McQueen. www.decadesinc.com
Next I jumped over to Mr. Chow’s in Beverly Hills for the Saks Fifth Avenue preview of the Vionnet Spring 2012 collection hosted by Angelique Soave and Vionnet chairman Matteo Marzotto.
The collection featured a rich palette of beautifully draped dresses ranging from solid hues to graphically bold prints. A few of my favorites were the floral print off the shoulder dress, the cobalt blue wrapped belted dress and the blush pleated cocktail dress with jeweled neck and beaded belt. www.s5a.com
