Sure it was an evening show, but the socials and celebs who turned up at the Lanvin (Hearts) H&M runway show at the Pierre on Thursday dressed as if the Queen were coming. The garden room was filled with baubles and up-dos and red-lacquered lips. “It’s still Lanvin, even if it is H&M,” said Olivia Chantecaille in a cocktail frock.
While waiters passed endless trays of martinis and Scotch, guests including Sofia Coppola, Elisa Sednaoui, Elettra Wiedemann, Lisa Airan (in a look from the runway) and Emma Roberts navigated the crowd of editors, chic Parisians and dressed-to-the-nines Lanvin lovers all eager to see the collection, but even more so to buy it after the show. “What is this shopping thing?” said Marjorie Gubelmann as she attempted to find her way to her seat. “Everybody’s given me their list.”
