STELLA’S SET: “This is so Stella,” Elettra Wiedemann said of the scene at the Americas Society Art Gallery, where Stella McCartney presented her pre-fall collection Tuesday night. “This mise-en-scène is what she’s all about, chic yet playful.” Wiedemann, clad in a citrine blazer from the designer’s resort collection, continued surveying the sea of Stella in the room where chicly outfitted models walked among the mere mortals. Hanne Gaby Odiele lounged on a chaise in one corner, sipping Champagne while debating the virtues of the new iPhone with Tilda Lindstam. In the next room, models huddled around a tufted ottoman to play Scrabble.
“It’s like cheveux,” Kayley Chabot said to French face Manon Leloup, running her fingers through her perfectly coiffed tresses in an attempt to explain her latest play: “H-A-I-R-Y.” Nearby, Jerry Seinfeld said hello to a bundled up Alec Baldwin, while McCartney introduced the comedian’s wife Jessica to model Frankie Rayder. Other notables included Hope Atherton, Cecilia Dean, Jeff Koons, Glenn Close, David Neville and Gucci Westman.
