ANNABEL’S BELLES: Olivier Rousteing held court at Annabel’s in London during a dinner to mark the opening of the brand’s new store on South Audley Street in Mayfair.

After posing with guests including Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Sigail Currie, Poppy Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Olga Kurylenko, Ellie Goulding and Mary Charteris, Rousteing – social media hound that he is – whipped out his phone and began snapping guests following the seafood feast on Monday night.

“I’m from Paris, I love Paris, but I’m not afraid to say it – London is so much more inspiring,” said the designer, adding that he shoots over to the British capital once a month for work and pleasure. “It’s the way the women dress, the emotion the city gives you. I just love it.”

Dunn, meanwhile, has been busy working in front of – and behind – the camera. She made a mark in February as the first black model to appear on the cover of British Vogue for more than a decade, and is at work on a children’s collection.

“My son is my muse, and he even helps me with the mood boards and fabrics,” said the model of her five-year-old Riley. She doesn’t have a launch date yet for the line – which will be unisex – and is currently in talks with potential partners on the project. Her spare time, meanwhile, is all about Riley. “For the moment, I’m being mum.”
