Masked ball rings in 90 years for French Vogue
Friday 01 October 2010
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 Paris by the French Vogue to mark its 90 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 Friday 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.
"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," he quipped.
"Vogue is still a beautiful demoiselle," said French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, who put out a doorstep-thick 600-page special edition to mark the magazine's anniversary.
