Magical. It’s a word typically saved for the most resplendent fashion reviews. But in the case of Chloe Gosselin’s fashion week party, it is simply the only word that will do — after all, it was held at David Copperfield’s apartment.
The fete, cohosted by the shoe designer and her magician fiancé, was held in celebration of Gosselin’s first fashion film. “All my shoes are named after poisonous flowers, so since the beginning I’ve had the idea of doing something with danger in it,” she said of the film, which centers around a femme fatale. “We built the whole story around that. The whole thing was a family affair. The model is one of my best friends, and the director is my friend. We just shot it last month in L.A.”
After watching the film, which played on loop in a makeshift theater toward the apartment’s entrance, guests, including Leigh Lezark, Natalie Joos, Sarah Easley and Yumi Lambert distracted themselves with Copperfield’s veritable museum of antique magic machines — fortune tellers, strength machines, et al. “I imagine that at the end of the night everything comes alive,” said one marveled partygoer as another complimented the magician on his vast collection of collectibles. “Just wait until there are less people here…everything does something,” he said with a wink.
