The House of Holland show is always a big celebrity attraction and was this season was no different. The FROW had all of the usual faces like Pixie Gledof, Leigh Lezark and Alexa Chung but this season Kelly Osborne attended too. The red leather halter neck dress that she wore to attend the show doesn't look particularly good in photos but in person, she actually managed to pull it off.
The launch of Carine Roitfeld's new magazine, CR Fashion Book, hasn't been without its controversies. As you will know, Condé Nast reportedly banned several photographers, models and stylists from collaborating with the former Vogue Paris editor but despite all of that, Roitfeld is flying high. The preview of the issue has gone down well and this weekend, just about everyone turned up to congratulate her at the party she hosted to celebrate the debut issue.
'It's very different from my last party,' she told The Cut, having a look at the guests in the marble-floored atrium of the Frick Museum. Around the same time last year Roitfeld through a karaoke party to celebrate her Barneys campaign at a strip club on the West Side Highway so basically the polar opposite of this year's swanky 'do. 'I want to do something different, more classic,' she said about the formal Mercedez Benz-sponsored black tie event. 'After all, I am a grandma now.'
Yesterday was a busy night in New York. As well as the Time 100 party, the city also played host to the Chanel Artist Dinner during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival at the Odeon. All of the names you would expect were there like Camilla Belle, Leigh Lezark and models Arizona Muse and Karlie Kloss. Even Julia Restoin-Roitfeld made an appearance showing her ever growing baby bump

Last night was the night that we had all been waiting for as Kanye West finally debuted his collection for KW by Kanye West in Paris during fashion week, to much anticipation. As you would expect, just about everyone was there. “I did not want to miss it,” Linda Fargo, the fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman, told The New York times and that seemed to be the sentiment of the all guests yesterday.
Fargo was joined by Jared Leto, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Leigh Lezark, Lindsay Lohan and Ciara. Designers like Alexander Wang and Azzedine Alaia sat alongside Anna Wintour and Glenda Bailey.
Last night the Lincoln Centre in New York played home to the 2011 CFDA Awards. As we knew, Marc Jacobs picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award, Phoebe Philo was presented with the International Award and Lady Gaga collected the big 'Fashion Icon' gong at last night's ceremony.
