Last night London played host to a star studded Stella McCartney black tie dinner for the presentation of the designer’s Winter 2012 evening collection. When we say star-studded, we mean STAR-STUDDED! Rihanna, Kate Moss, Bianca Jagger, Stella Tennant, Juergen Teller, Anna Wintour, Mario Testino, Simon Le Bon, Alison Mosshart, Sharleen Spiteri, Laura Bailey, Jamie Hince, Twiggy, Richard E. Grant, Katy B, Marc Quinn, Chantal Joffe, Alexandra Shulman, Tim Walker, Barry Reigate, Paul Whitehouse, Nick Grimshaw, Dionne Broomfield, Anya Rubik, and many more were present to help celebrate the new collection. And were these folks ever in for a treat this evening.
Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra played for guests with various magical moments taking place throughout the evening. First up we have to mention the sudden performance of models dancing around the tables to a classic tune courtesy of Led Zeppelin. All of the models were naturally wearing the new London Evening Collection from Stella McCartney….which is gorgeous! Then of course the magic continued… literally…as Alexa Chung took to the stage with Dutch illusionist Hans Klok.
All in all, a night to remember and new clothes to covet!
The one-off Winter 2012 London Evening Collection will be available through Stella McCartney freestanding stores worldwide, on www.stellamcartney.com and select retailers worldwide starting July 2012.
The designer’s Winter 2012 collection, will be shown as scheduled on March 5th in Paris.
