What do you do when your dad and girlfriend are being spotlighted at two different events on the same night? David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren and boyfriend of Lauren Bush, decided to create his own version of a wild goose chase, traveling back and forth between the WWD CEO Summit at The Plaza in New York, where his father was speaking, and the Accessories Council Excellence Awards at Cipriani 42nd Street, where Bush was being honored with the Humanitarian Award for her FEED Project. But he managed to do it all, even making it to Cipriani in time to see Kanye West take the stage. West, who was being honored with the Stylemaker of the Year Award, gave a teary speech as he thanked Marc Jacobs for the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton, but lamented the lack of respect he’s received in the industry. “Fashion breaks my heart,” he told a crowd that included Donald and Melania Trump, Christina Ricci and former “The City” castmates Joe Zee and Olivia Palermo, who presented Henri Bendel with the Retailer of the Year Award. Palermo revealed to Insider that she can’t get enough of Charlotte Olympia footwear, and now that she’s out of a job (or at least a reality TV gig), she’s pursuing a few projects of her own. “I’d rather focus on a documentary-type series,” she said. Meanwhile, Maria Sharapova, in gray slingback pumps, accepted the Brand Collaboration Award for her work with Cole Haan, while Rachel Roy (who was named Brand Launch of the Year for her partnership with Macy’s) kept things a little more casual in oxfords. “I don’t want to fit into a bubble,” she said. “If I’m brave in trying new things, my [customers] will be, too.”
