ELOISE’S MOM AT THE PLAZA: With her two-year-old daughter, Eloise, in her arms, Stacey Bendet, co-owner and designer of Alice + Olivia, appropriately selected The Plaza hotel to showcase her fall collection. “The clothing was really rich and glamorous, and it was a lot of mixing of bouclés and tweeds, with a grown-up feeling, so we thought it was appropriate to do it at the Plaza,” said Bendet. Posing in various vignettes, the models were busy sneaking in pieces of chocolate and sips of Champagne, as photographers swarmed around them taking pictures. “She’s so talented and ambitious, and executes so well,” said Stefani Greenfield, founder and owner of My Next Act.

Bendet, who is pregnant with her second child, attracted a celebrity crowd, including Vanessa Hudgens, Brittany Snow, Sophia Bush, Kelly Rutherford, Erin Andrews, Tinsley Mortimer, Johnny Weir and Byrdie Bell.
