On a magazine shoot a few weeks ago, I had the delightful fun of carousing about with the ultra-girly pieces Marc Jacobs confected for Louis Vuitton Spring 2012. Spell-check doesn't think "confected" is a word, but there really is no other way to describe the creation of the Spring show's spun-sugar sweetness, displayed on a heavenly white carousel.

Now, if there is one person in the world who could rock that parasol in real life, it's Anna Dello Russo. And the Vogue Nippon editor extraordinaire did just that for last night's star-studded celebration honoring the Louis Vuitton-Marc Jacobs exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs.

By bringing the parasol to the party, ADR fulfills all tea party fantasies of any girl who ever read Louisa May Alcott growing up. Just for that, she was the sartorial stand-out of the night, but the exhibition celebration brought out many other beautiful fashion icons following the house's Fall show:


From top left: Bianca Brandolini d'Adda and Coco Brandolini, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Elisa Sednaoui (in my favorite look), Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Dianna Agron, Lee Radziwell (breathtakingly beautiful and my icon), Louise Bourgoin, Natalia Vodianova and Antoine Arnault, Sarah Jessica Parker, Poppy Delevigne, Virginie Courtin-Clarins and Caroline Sieber, and Robert Pattinson (being very American and boyish wearing a baseball cap to a fancy fashion party, love it).

The Fall collection, shown just as elaborately on a steam train built from scratch, sadly did not include any parasols. However, there were porters following every model, so they seemed to be this season's stand-out accessory.


What do you think, will ADR will take to having a uniformed man walk behind her at the next party?
