Tuesday night, everyone in the fashion industry was focusing on one color, red, for the premiere of the documentary Valentino: The Last Emperor, hosted by Quintessentially and Gilt Groupe. Countless models turned out to celebrate the famed designer, including Coco Rocha, Anja Rubik, Helena Christensen, Karolina Kurkova, Agyness Deyn, and Hana Soukupova. Stay tuned for full coverage on the event, but in the meantime, here are two interesting tidbits of news to tide you over.
Chanel Iman made a late entrance, with designer Jason Wu, dressed up in Look 28 that Eniko Mihalik just showed off on the Fall ’09 runway. It’s no surprise that Jason is a huge fan of Chanel, as she’s been in many of his shows. “I love Chanel. I’ve used Chanel many seasons since I’ve been around,” he said. “She’s one of my favorite models!” When we hinted about the Met Gala, Chanel responded, “We’re gonna have so much fun!” Will the pair be attending together? “I don’t know, maybe!” she said. “We never know. It’s all a secret,” Jason smiled. We’ll take that as a good possibilty.
Another secret that was hinted at last night was Nicole Trunfio’s plan to expand into jewelry design. She paired her BCBG dress with a stunning silver necklace, and we just had to ask who it was by. “It’s coming soon, that’s all I can say,” Nicole said. With some prodding, asking if it was her line, she granted us, “Maybe, mmhmm,” and did let her inspirations out, saying “Life, everything; music most of all. I really love music. Acting, actors, film, culture, everything. I feel like you can find inspiration in every single thing out there.” We look forward to seeing what that transforms into jewelry-wise!
