Stargazing at Stella McCartney Pre-fall
After a whirlwind Monday in New York, I found myself smack-dab at the crossroads of high fashion and high society. Stella McCartney is known for her pre-fall and resort presentations-cum-parties, and last night’s event for the autumn 2014 collection did not disappoint. While the clothes were on view, this was hardly a stop-in-and-dash-off preview (as many industry-only fashion showings tend to be). Rather, the oversized rooms of the historic Harold Pratt House on Park Avenue—a library, a drawing room, and what looked to be a former ballroom included—overflowed with New York’s glitterati. And while McCartney’s clothes were beautiful, sumptuous and lovely—the kind you want to put on right this minute!—the real draw, especially for the most sparkly of the guests, was Stella herself, who duly hugged and hobnobbed with models and movie stars.
