FALL FETE: Rochelle Gores Fredston, along with Saks Fifth Avenue and PSLA, hosted the 4th Annual Autumn Party on Wednesday night at the home of Colleen and Bradley Bell. “It started as a little fashion event with lines from my store,” said Fredston of her first benefit for Children’s Institute Inc. and her now-shuttered Melrose Avenue boutique, Arcade.
“I’m really impressed by what Rochelle has done,” said Saks Inc. general manager John Cruz of the event, which featured a musical chairs-style fashion show by Stella McCartney. In the mix were Molly Sims, Erin Wasson, Portia de Rossi and Erika Christensen, as well as designers Monique Lhuillier, Pamela Skaist-Levy, Gela Nash-Taylor, Shane Gabier and Chris Peters. “It feels kind of like a groovy wedding,” said Peters.
