GUCCI HITS DALLAS: Champagne and girl talk bubbled Wednesday evening when Gucci and Vogue entertained a chic platoon at Grange Hall in Dallas.
Hosts Nasiba Adilova, Taylor Tomasi Hill and Laura Love mustered a fashion pack that included Moll Anderson, Claire Emanuelson, Federica Fanari, Cate Ford, Sue Gragg, Joyce Goss, Jennifer Karol, Jenny Kirtland, Sheryl Mass, Nini Nguyen, Cindy Rachofsky, Nancy Rogers and Sharon Young.
It’s been years since Gucci has thrown such an event in Dallas, and the soiree promoted the “100 Ways to Wear Gucci” campaign.
Some of the guests needed no reminder. Lucy Wrubel has had a love affair with the brand since sixth grade, when she scored a Gucci bag at a secondhand shop.
“I want everything in the spring collection,” Wrubel said. “It’s so Wes Anderson. All the details — there is so much ‘[The Royal] Tenenbaums’ going on.”
Gucci has a significant presence at Forty Five Ten, where Hill is vice president and creative/fashion director. The retailer stocks Gucci men’s and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories and is preparing to unveil its big new flagship Nov. 11.
“We’ll be open,” promised Shelle Sills, director of retail and project development at Headington Cos., the financial muscle behind the expansion. “The paint may be wet, but we’ll be there.”
