It was the perfect way for posh Parisians to unwind after the collections — a blowout for high-fashion photog Mario Testino hosted by the always provocative magazine Visionaire.
Roman Polanski, Jade Jagger, Kelly Klein and Ross Bleckner were just a few of those who turned out at Pavillon LeDoyen to take a look at Visionaire’s 22nd issue, dedicated to “Chic.”
During the dinner for 40, male strippers appeared in nothing but black lacy underpants, holding copies of the magazine. As one guest reached out to touch — a copy of the magazine, that is — a scantily clad dancer held on tightly to the issue.
“Lookie, but no keepie,” he said.
After dinner, when the velvet ropes parted for hundreds of other guests, New York drag queen deejay Lady Bunny started spinning and the crowd went nuts. Stella McCartney was at the white-hot center of it all, boogying with Travolta-like prowess with her best friend and Chloe studio assistant, Phoebe Philo.
Meanwhile, Visionaire is already in production on its “Nude” issue, which is being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. He has already shot Linda, Amber and fashion’s newest staple — Demi — in the altogether.
