Heidi Klum, Taylor Momsen, Hannah Simone, and More Stars Celebrate Donatella Versace’s New CollectionsMay 16, 2013 @ 6:09 pm
Heidi Klum, Taylor Momsen, and Hannah Simone were among the many stars who came out to celebrate the reveal of Donatella Versace’s two new collections for Versus Versace Wednesday night at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City. The event stood out for showcasing both London designer J.W. Anderson’s one-off capsule collection for the brand, as well as a revamped archival line for Versus Versace. Combining both music and fashion, the models showed off the looks in groups as musical acts—including Grimes, Angel Haze and Dead Sara—performed throughout. “The launch of Versus Versace brought together everything that I love: fashion, music, DJs, young people and their amazing energy,” Donatella said. “This mix of music and fashion captures the essence of Versus Versace, a label for a new global tribe.” Shop the Versus Versace line now at versusversace.com and J.W. Anderson’s capsule collection come June 15. Plus, see more of last night’s parties by clicking the photo above.
This is what we call a warm InStyle welcome! Last night, InStyle Editor Ariel Foxman brought together his designer pals and industry veterans to celebrate InStyle‘s newest team member, Style Director Melissa Rubini. “I love being able to see the InStyle team,” designer Zac Posen told us before taking his seat for the intimate dinner at Lafayette, the new cozy French bistro in downtown Manhattan. “They’ve always been a very ingratiating family, which is very rare and very special in fashion. There’s actually a family mentality and a community.” Indeed it felt like a family at the event, where guests including Girls star Zosia Mamet, actress Yaya DaCosta, designer Rachel Roy, and more dined family-style on ravioli, wood-grilled tuna, and braised short rib entrees before digging into milk chocolate mousse and chocolate-almond tortes for dessert. And you, our InStyle.com readers, are a part of our family, too! Click to get your inside look at the dinner.

Even today, when the raindrops poured down for the premiere film, The Great Gatsby, star Carey Mulligan smiled for the cameras with umbrella in hand wearing a blush Dior Haute Couture gown and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Karl Lagerfeld presented his resort collection for Chanel in Singapore last week. The lineup revolved around the classic color palette of black, white, and navy, but it was the eyes where you saw color pop off the runway. Chanel’s contributing makeup artist Peter Philips created the electric look—thanks to Chanel’s Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in True Blue—which lit up the eyes against an otherwise fresh, clean face. He finished it off by lining top lids with Noir Intense, a black hue, and swiped on several coats of Chanel’s Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. Daring enough to try the look yourself? Shop the neon color for $30 at nordstrom.com.
