I hope you all keep up with my tweets and Instagram pictures from the MAC & Carine Roitfeld ‘Le Bal’ celebrations which took place yesterday at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild during Paris Fashion Week.
One of the first to arrive was the lovely Karlie Kloss, my hero, who looked gorgeous wearing an Alexander Wang Spring 2013 fresh-off-the-runway look.
She got the ‘smoky eye’ memo, as did Poppy Delevingne, who smouldered on the red carpet wearing an Emilio Pucci black long-sleeve dress with a gold dragon from the recent Spring 2013 collection.
Carine Roitfeld arrived wearing signature all black Givenchy avec smoky eyes, the inspiration for the whole evening.
Giovanna Battaglia took the inspiration one step further by opting for a Batgirl look.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld worked a smoky eye wearing a black Dolce & Gabbana lace dress with a velvet waistband. I loved her golden clutch.
Ulyana Sergeenko didn’t steer from her signature aesthetic, wearing a gown from her Fall 2012 Couture collection sans smoky eyes.
Caroline Sieber opted for a fresh, summery look giving us our first look at the Christopher Kane Spring 2013 collection on the red carpet. Thankfully the black pumps fade into the black carpet.
Cara Delevingne opted for a summery Pucci frock with a keyhole detail and a thigh-high slit which showcased her gold strappy platform sandals.
Rachel Zoe attended wearing a ruffled Viktor & Rolf creation which she styled with a black sparkling clutch and diamond necklace. She too sported a smoky eye, as did her husband Rodger Berman and many other gentlemen at the event who adhered to the ‘black tie, smoky eye’ dress code.
Keeping to the black dress code, Anna Dello Russo wore a beautiful Ulyana Sergeenko gown with Bulgari jewels. Even under her extravagant hat, you can still see she is sporting a smoky eye.
Natalia Vodianova wore an elegant black Givenchy gown with a Louis Vuitton clutch.
Once inside the venue, the celebrities enjoyed the drinks and canapés whilst listening to Paloma Faith who performed an amazing set with her band.
