SOCIAL NETWORKING: Jonathan Saunders, Nicholas Kirkwood, Roksanda Ilinčić and Charlotte Dellal were among guests at the dinner hosted by Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Motilo at Caviar Kaspia in Paris on Friday.

Restoin Roitfeld was tapped to be ambassador of the London-based social shopping platform last September. These days, she is also busy with her Web site Romy and the Bunnies.

“I am a geek,” said Restoin Roitfeld. “I am on Instagram for sure, Twitter not really, Facebook still and a lot of online shopping!”
 
“I am in Paris, here to interview about 10 new people for the studio. I am also trying to see some exhibitions by Monday,” Saunders said, adding he likes Paris, especially its French wine and roasted chicken — the type he gets at Hotel Amour’s restaurant.

Olympia, wearing Rochas, said her favorite thing to do in Paris is walk. “That sounds cliché, but Paris makes me feel like walking. It is so beautiful, and it feels you can walk everywhere — even with my shoes,” she said. “I make flat shoes, too.”

The love flowed in both directions across the pond. “I love the free spirit in London,” said Carine Roitfeld.
