The Sleighbell Luncheon to benefit the Atlanta Symphony welcomed the holidays with Christmas centerpieces, butternut squash soup and a show of party-perfect clothes presented by Rich's.
While most of the clothes parading down the runway were red and black, green made a surprise appearance -- in velvet and sequins -- and drew lots of applause from the assembled.
The proceeds of the event -- more than $20,000 -- went to the Atlanta Symphony, who unfortunately weren't around to fill in when the recorded music stopped halfway through the fashion show. Guests took it in stride, however, using the ten minutes it took to bring back the music to talk about what to buy.
As usual, the little black dresses were favored. "If I bring home another black dress, I think my husband will flip," one guest said.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)

For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
