Dior invited 50 of San Francisco’s cultural movers and shakers to a lunch last week to view the Dior summer 2010 collection and a selection of couture Bar jackets from the Paris archives. “I’d love to keep all of them,” said Juliet de Baubigny, admiring the pieces on display in Pamela Joyner’s sunny breakfast room.
During lunch, as models in red carpet-worthy silk gowns pranced through the dining room, the Bay Area’s fashion contingent was joined by a junior member. Make that super-junior.
Five-month-old Montana Tessa Newsom, dressed in Baby Dior booties, popped in with her nanny for a visit with mom Jennifer Siebel Newsom, one of the luncheon hosts.
Jennifer has been working 24/7 to complete a rough cut of her 90-minute documentary, “Miss Representation,” about women in politics. “It’s been a very intense one-year project, and now we have to complete a final cut to show at summer film festivals,” said Newsom.
Also nibbling on lobster medallions and pear galettes were Sloan Barnett, Karen Caldwell, Hillary Newsom Callan, Rosemary Baker, Dayle Haddon, and Yurie Pascarella.
