Felicitations, Alber Elbaz!
The Moroccan-born Lanvin designer turned Paris into his personal anniversary party on Friday night, hosting his stunning fall show and afterwards, throwing a huge gala to celebrate 10 years with the brand during Paris Fashion Week.
The venue for both? A very swanky Left Bank warehouse near the Seine river.
The Wall Street Journal relays that guests feasted on hors d'oeuvres of foie gras lollipops and champagne before the show even began (and when it did, it was 75 minutes after the posted start time). The New York Times notes the presence of "six or seven" large birthday cakes. And, okay, we're officially jealous.
During the show, which presented both menswear and womenswear in Elbaz' traditional sumptuous aesthetic, current model darling Karlie Kloss even took to the runway in a luxurious black dress.
And at the show's finale, Elbaz showed off his pipes, singing "Que Sera Sera" for the adoring crowd. Among the guests in attendance? Tilda Swinton, Jessica Alba, Pharrell Williams, Anna Wintour (obvs) and Dita von Teese, who stayed to party the night away with the rest of the crowd.
Elbaz was appointed artistic director of Lanvin in Paris in 2001.
