Alberta Ferretti got her years-long wish Thursday night of presenting a runway show in Hollywood. The designer, who says “Los Angeles is one of my favorite places,” partnered with Lisa Love to present a selection from the pre-fall and Limited Edition collections at Chateau Marmont, followed by a sit-down dinner and dance party. Models sashayed through the parlor while Kate Beckinsale (with daughter Lily and husband Len Wiseman), Selena Gomez, Olivia Munn, Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Alison Brie took in the show along with Jacqui, Rosetta and Balthazar Getty and Gia and Francis Ford Coppola.
There were also a few young men in the mix like Justin Bartha and Chord Overstreet, a fashion show newbie. “I don’t get to go to many of these, but it’s a wild experience. Beautiful girls and beautiful clothes. It’s great because I don’t have a girlfriend hitting me if I stare too long.” Brie, who has a premiere at Sundance in a week, was eyeballing some of the embellished furs: “I think they’d be perfect for dressing up the jeans and T-shirts. I’m getting on that!” During dinner in the tented garden, Ferretti toasted Love’s birthday and said, “It’s a perfect night.” As the music volume went up, tables and chairs were quickly moved aside so that everyone from Ferretti, Juan Carlos Obando and Gregory Parkinson to the young starlets could get their groove on.
