In a week of deplorable weather, the fashion gods smiled upon the boys of Men.Style.com Wednesday night for their 3rd Annual Women of Fashion event. Held in the courtyard of the Palace Hotel—Gossip Girl jokes aside—it really turned out to be a perfect evening. And while there were no Lonely Boy, Chuck Bass, S, or B sightings, the night was full of models like Chanel Iman and Heather Marks, as well as fashion insiders and designers like Julie Gilhart, Philip Crangi, Richard Chai, Sean Avery, and Yigal Azrouël.
Not to mention the honorees for the evening! Though not everyone was in attendance, the lucky 25 women chosen were Milla Jovovich, Chloë Sevigny, Charlotte Ronson, Erin Wasson, Alexa Chung, Eunice Lee, Minnie Mortimer Gaghan, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Leigh Lezark, Pamela Love, Berrin Noorata, Harley Viera-Newton, Poppy de Villeneuve, Lesley Thompson, Ana Lerario Geller, Danielle Corona, Garance Doré, Rachel Roy, Chrissie Miller, Umindi Francis, Sophia Hesketh, Erika Bearman, Eugenia Gonzalez Ruiz-Olloqui, Frances Tulk-Hart, and Louise Roe.
Chanel hung out in the tent to the side with cohost of the evening Kanye West and lamented the lack of her name on the list. “Chanel Iman’s not on it?” she asked. “Oh, that sucks! One day, one day. In a couple years. I want to be somewhere on that list.”
While most mingled downstairs in the Palace Gate lounge, the after-party turned out to be on the roof, as Olivier Zahm was photographing all of the winners during the event. Garance and Scott Schuman had a mini photo shoot overlooking the new Burberry sign, Charlotte Ronson nursed her sprained ankle in the Alexander Wang heels that Dree Hemingway loves, and everyone indulged in mini desserts and a few glasses of champers.
