Later in the week, Tara Rockefeller, Tory Burch, Anne Grauso and Jennifer Creel joined Lars Nilsson to toast his debut collection for Nina Ricci. Judy Peabody (in Bill Blass from Nilsson’s last season with the label) admired clothing she wasn’t sure had enough tulle for her tastes — “This is definitely for the younger generation,” she said. Gigi Mortimer traded Halloween cupcake-decorating techniques with Ines Rivera.
That evening at the Night of Olana, sponsored by Yves Saint Laurent, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos described her children’s Halloween costumes, one of which she had tried to make herself. “I can’t sew and I can’t make patterns,” Olarte de Kanavos said. “So every time I left the house, my housekeeper would fix it up for me.”
Coralie Charriol didn’t know who she was wearing —“It makes me look like Beyoncé, but I don’t have her tush” — but at least Jazz Johnson seemed comfortable in her green YSL gown, if not in her new position. “I’m the chairman of the board for Olana,” Johnson exclaimed. “I don’t know what that means exactly, but I’m the new chairman.”
