Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld sure knows how to throw a party. Despite fashion week being in full swing and having to be up for show at 9am this morning, just about every editor and model came out to party last night co celebrate his touring exhibition with Richard Hambleton.
Guests included mother Carine and sister Julia Restoin Roitfeld along with Giovanna Battaglia, naturally, and the likes of Mario Sorrenti, Jessica Hart and Doutzen Kroes.
Lorenzo Martone - who recently set up a model-only boutique PR company with clients such as Lydia Hearst and Alessandra Ambrosio - is currently exploring the realms of swimwear. The Cut reports that Martone and Jules Kim designer of Bijules jewellery are working together on her debut swimwear line, which is "in development." Although Kim plans to launch the line next spring, we're still not precisely sure of the role Martone is playing. But we expect that the way in which he'll marry the two aspects of his work (models and swimwear), will be something worth watching.
Lorenzo Martone has joined forces with Elite's former marketing director, Ryan Brown, to create a boutique PR agency for models. The agency, whose clients already include Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica White and Lydia Hearst, aim to "build equity around the girl's personality".
According to The Cut, the duo aim to help the models broaden their horizons and branch into acting, singing and enterainment roles.
Last night's Whitney Art party was certainly the place to be for a Wednesday in New York. With everyone from Lake Bell to Camilla Belle (big range there on surnames) checking out the works before the annual auction, there was plenty of prettiness to look at.
Not the least of which was Bradley Cooper. He's making the rounds at the season's biggest galas and award shows, and we're not complaining. If it takes a movie like 'The Hangover' to get him in the public eye more often, then we say bring on the frat-boy humour.
