This weekend saw the happy opening and welcome to the Dolce&Gabbanna range to the online store Net-A-Porter, owner and business entrepreneur Natalie Massenet threw the shindig to welcome the couture Italian designers to the Porter collection, hosted at the Net-a-porter.com offices above west London’s largest shopping center Westfields.
The Launch saw an eclectic mix of celebrities, models and singers in the audience from super model Naomi Campbell, singer Pixie Lott and unemployed Peaches Geldof! to name a few.
Naomi arrived in a green leopard skin dress by D&G which was very cool, calm and collected from the outfits the supermodel usually wears. She paired the dress with a simple pair of black open toed sandles and a few bracelets, very minimalist yet chic attire for the casual party.
Since the party was in name of D&G everyone therefore arrived in Dolce and pretty much looked rather glam in an array of diverse outfits from the recent collections. It was very surprising to see the Queen out in the city, but she adopted a very smart MIB (Men In Black) suit with some high fashion shades and a high pony, very sophisticated and and sexy especially when paired with some open toed heels. We Love this androgynous, take-no-nonsense look!
Gabanna from the duo commented on British fashion stating “You know, in England, you have what we don’t have in Italy – a freedom of mentality about dressing. I love the way the English dress, it’s so free. Pixie Lott and Paloma Faith – it’s exciting to see what they wear. And she” – he said as Peaches Geldof approached to kiss him hello – “she’s an icon.”
The attendees had opted for the summer look choosing D&G lace of floral pieces and took the opportunity to pose in front of a Sicilian backdrop or mount two vintage green Vespas. Jade Williams performed a sound acoustic atmospheric music whilst everyone enjoyed the evening sipping on cocktails with Martini Gold by Dolce & Gabbana with some authentic Italian canapes from Locanda Locatelli. Yum!
Since we have moved onto tasty dishes- This handsome model David Gandi also arrived in a black tie by D&G looking dapper and rather sharp and Chic. combining the smartness of the black suit with the coolness of some relaxed black jeans and shoes.. this look just works!
A celeb pair that caught our eyes- is the Kelly and Pixi duo- they look like the British version of the the Olsen twins, dressed in figure hugging tight maxi dresses with bright blonde hair to match- these two could most certainly be sisters.
The group photo that surfaced online looked similar to that of what you might find between friends on Facebook but if you take a closer look you can see the D&G clan alongside Naomi and the Queen! Awesome – they look very relaxed and happy.
