French Vogue Celebrates 90th Anniversary

Let’s talk about one of the most spectacular events of Paris Fashion Week S/S 2011, the 90 th Anniversary Party of French Vogue. On the last day of September, everyone who’s someone in the fashion world honored French Vogue at Hotel Pozzo di Borgo.

The celebratory event was in fact a masquerade ball with quite an impressive guest list: Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova, Lara Stone, Dita von Teese and many more.

I love the idea of “masquerade ball” and I also loved the fashion! Well, most of it at least. My favorite two ladies were: Alessandra Ambrosio – who was a show stopper in a body hugging, long red satin dress, matching statement necklace and wearing the best looking mask of the evening; and Karolina Kurkova who looked like she was wearing one fierce Zorro costume: love the LBD, the gloves and fabulous shoes!

I’m not a fan of Gisele’s “gift-like” dress although I love her mask-very original. And what was up with Tyra Banks? Her dress is stunning, the black clutch is beautiful, but what’s with the fishnet mask?! Here’s her explanation:  “So FRENCH VOGUE mask is sum cheap FISHNET stockings I got n crazy store n Paris! I cut em up n made it y’all. N did my own hair n makeup.”
