Where do we even begin about last night's Matthew Williamson exclusive launch party for his diffusion line, MW Matthew Williamson? Let's just say it's been a while since we had a night of surprises like this. While we already mentioned the debut of Lorenzo Martone's questionable eyebrows at the bash, we now have to gush about Dree Hemingway. First of all, the blonde bombshell couldn't have looked more stunning in that purple floral minidress—until she decided to put on some pieces from Williamson's collection for an amazing impromptu fashion show. Favorite moment of the night? Hemingway leaving on Williamson's arm in a brown, silk jumpsuit and sky-high heels, a moment which was caught by a single paparazzo who later revealed that he freaked out more about seeing her than any Hollywood-type.
