Us Graziaettes do love a swanky party and they don’t come much swankier than one thrown in honour of the delectable charms of Kate Moss. Mario Testino joined the superduper model in London last night to celebrate an array of photographs that he took of her back in 1996 and what a wonderful blast from the past it was! The exhibition was cheekily titled ‘Kate Who?’ - a fitting choice considering the fashionable faces that rocked up in matchy-matchy monochrome like a parade of Kate copy cats. Take a look and you’ll see what we mean...
Of course, the lady of the night took centre stage but kept it simple in an asymmetric LBD by bessie mate Stella McCartney, paired with pointed Louboutin heels, perfectly exemplifying Testino’s statement that Mossy “represents the ultimate kind of woman - an icon of our times” (we couldn’t have put it better ourselves, Mario).
Stella herself was on hand to lend support and opted for a similar look with her classic shift and a pair of equally pointed pumps (more on those babies later) while the fancy-schmancy Donatella Versace arrived wearing – shock horror! – a black frock. What a trio!
Surprise surprise, Alice Dellal and Astrid Munoz also turned to the dark side for their party attire, although with very, er, different results. Um guys, was there a strict dress code that we weren’t aware of..?
P'rhaps not, because here’s Gwyneth Paltrow direct from her bootilicious knees-up with Beyonce at Wireless this weekend. Gwynnie wisely ditched the festie fashion for a sophisticated combo of black city shorts mixed with a polished white blouse plus yes, you guessed it, pointed sling-backs.
Jacquetta Wheeler also cracked out the pins in her summer-suitable Alice by Temperley SS '10 Bea jumpsuit brightened up by gold accents on her Temperley London SS '10 Flying Horse belt and a casual pair of gladiator sandals - perfect for a city heatwave we feel.
With her striking animal print bringing a touch of the individual to the soiree, we can’t help but love Poppy Delevigne and her bare-faced glow, especially since she finished off her funky ensemble with some spectacularly chunky boots that toughen up her frock a treat. What’s not to love?
And last but not least, Jasmine Guinness looked very well-put-together, adding a splash of colour to her cutsey dress with dainty dollops of red.
A round of applause, please! But who’s your fave? We’re dying to know so feel free to get vocal in the box below...
