Last evening in Paris, Carine Roitfeld requested the honor of the presence of the beautiful people and they came as instructed by the world's most brilliant stylist — Black Tie, Smoky Eye. Yes, La Roitfeld invoked her own image as the theme for her ball, hosted with M.A.C. to celebrate her CR makeup collection, and appeared in a Givenchy jumpsuit fresh off the runway. Carine is renowned for her decadent parties during Paris Fashion Week and this one spared none of the lavish staples, champagne and karaoke were in full swing as the crowd packed the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. Among the glamorous on the list: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wearing a black dress by Dolce & Gabbana, Giovanna Battaglia, Sara Battaglia, Haider Ackermann, Azzedine Alaïa, Cara Delevingne, Poppy Delevingne, Anna Dello Russo, Peter Dundas, Valentino Garavani, Nicolas Ghesquière, Karlie Kloss, Karl Lagerfeld, Kate Moss, Gareth Pugh, Gaia Repossi, Mario Testino, Riccardo Tisci, Giambattista Valli, Natalia Vodianova, Alexander Wang, Kanye West, Vivienne Westwood, and Rachel Zoe. Guests were treated to a performance by Paloma Faith and in classic Carine style, the elegant affair concluded with a group pillow fight.
