“I’m like one of the girls from Robert Palmer’s ‘Addicted to Love” (video),” Angela Lindvall, clad in a strict black suit with crimson lips, declared Thursday as she strode into the temporary Vogue Bar at the Hotel Crillon.
A plasma screen behind the bar broadcast Twitter feeds from revelers in the room, which included Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada, Delphine Arnault, Renzo Rosso and a gaggle of models. Erin Wasson, who jetted in from a shoot in Argentina with Terry Richardson, said she just finished designing her second jewelry collection under her Low Luv label, to be sold at Colette.
New mother Karolina Kurkova, who returned to the runway for Giles Deacon a few days earlier, said she was missing her four-month-old son. “It’s the first time I have been away from him,” she sighed.
Meanwhile, graffiti artist and entrepreneur André Saraiva said that although he had closed his club Beatrice in New York, he is planning to open a branch of his Parisian hot spot, Le Baron. “I have also just taken over the Rasputin, just behind Louis Vuitton,” said Saraiva, who is hoping to hold one or two fashion parties at his new Paris venue.
