Fashionistas come out at 90 years anniversary of Vogue

2010-10-01 14:49

From Zorro to the Commedia del Arte, the in-crowd stepped out in fancy-dress, glamour-style, for an extravagant Fashion Week bash thrown in the capital Paris by the French Vogue to mark its 90th birthday.

There were Mohican-style masks, devil masks, a couple in matching spiked masks, and one frankly alarming leather mask at the party, which rocked into the early hours of today under the chandeliers of a Latin Quarter mansion.

Singer Lenny Kravitz and glam-artist Dita von Teese were two of the recognisable faces among the crowd of masked, tuxedo- and ball-gown-wearing fashionistas.

French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac wowed the crowd with an eye mask stitched together from two pairs of gloves, while Jean-Paul Gaultier designed a metal mask adorned with a line of feathers.

De Castelbajac said: “Yes, they’re giant eyelashes, acting like hair – since I’m missing some as you can see – so instead I’ve gone for this black plume.”

“Vogue is still a beautiful demoiselle (a young woman),” said French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, who put out a doorstep-thick 600-page special edition to mark the magazine’s anniversary.
