GROUCHO GANG: Decked in a bejeweled tartan minidress by Fausto Puglisi, Anna Dello Russo held court at London’s Groucho Club on Tuesday night, and joined in the exuberant chatter about David Bowie’s surprise new album, due out in March.

Dello Russo said she’s a big fan of Bowie’s music and, “In terms of his style he is a visionary. I am so, so excited for his retrospective at the V&A! In particular, I am fascinated by the era of Kansai Yamomoto costumes that he wore — that for me was an amazing collaboration.”

The Fashion & Art Party was also co-hosted by Jo Levin, the creative fashion director of British GQ, and others to mark the London men’s shows.

Guests included David Gandy, fresh from launching his Blue Steel Appeal to raise funds for the Comic Relief charity, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nick Rhodes, and Nicholas Kirkwood.
