You only turn 10 once. Lanvin decided to forgo the standard Chuck E. Cheese party in favor of a sumptuous runway affair that also featured cake, live music, and the very best-dressed partygoers (okay, fine, models
), of course. Alber Elbaz is a master of party dressing, and for his fall '12 show, he didn't stray far from his strengths, but just elevated the looks.
Ruffles were extra
ruffly, jewels were extra
bilgy, and that rich-bitch look he's made so covetable became even richer, even bitchier, and so, so
much more amazing. With Paper
magazine's Kim Hastreiter playing along with Pink Martini, the backstage wasn't your typical scene, with boys in matching velvet blazers, Alber belting one out with the band, and — oh hey
Karlie Kloss — is that
where you've been?
