Diane von Furstenberg expanded on one of her favorite subjects — girl power — as she worked the room during a post-runway dinner party at Indochine on Sunday night. “It’s about being a girl if you want to be a girl or being a woman if you want to be a woman,” she said of her fall collection. “I just want women to say, ‘I love being me.’ ”

A group of partygoers, including DVF creative director Yvan Mispelaere, Gia Coppola, Olivier Zahm and Eugenia Silva, cozied up next to seatmates Lorenzo Martone and Douglas Friedman. DJ Chelsea Leyland spun the tunes. An all-black, fur-clad Rachel Zoe and husband Rodger Berman made a brief appearance, as did Zoe’s former assistant Brad Goreski.

“I don’t understand how people do the shows and then go out all night. I’m an old lady,” said Michelle Harper, whose appearance indicated nothing of the sort. “But I do have fun getting dressed every single day. Every day, for me, is fashion week.”

“I love your dress,” said a partygoer to model Elisa Sednaoui, who wore a sweeping, floor-length floral print.

“Seventies vintage prints — they don’t make ’em like they used to,” said Sednaoui, exiting the ladies’ room.

“Well,” she took a step back and smiled, “maybe DVF does.”
