GETTY’S GIRLS: For August Getty, fashion runs in the family. Flanked by his sister and muse, Natalia, and their mother, Ariadne, of the Getty Oil dynasty, the self-taught, 20-year-old designer followed his September debut at New York Fashion Week with an intimate dinner party in Los Angeles on Wednesday evening. Friends of the Getty trio — including Tyra Banks and beau Erik Asia, Jeannie Mai, Cameron Silver and Taylor Spreitler — convened atop the Montage Beverly Hills, where four looks from August’s 25-piece spring 2015 collection were on poolside display.
Choosing one look from every category that he offered, August Getty highlighted two structured black minidresses, a gold gown with metallic details and a pale-pink pantsuit. “This all started when I was four. I would dress up my Barbie dolls,” he recalled of his start in designing. “It was just natural.”
