Is there a better time to throw a party than the weekend before the Met Gala? With models, designers, stylists, celebrities, and the like landing in New York City just before fashion's biggest party of the year, Moda Operandi, Net-a-Porter, and Dolce & Gabbana scheduled big celebrations.
Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet threw a party at the not-yet-opened restaurant Omar's in Greenwich Village that drew Karolína Kurková, Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing, Prabal Gurung, and Miranda Kerr, among others. Uptown, Giovanna Battaglia was busy hosting the opening of Dolce & Gabbana's Fifth Avenue boutique, which was attended by Constance Jablonski and Harley Viera Newton and featured a performance by singers Ellie Dehn and Matthew Polenzani.
Moda Operandi's party, which celebrated the launch of the retailer's punk-themed collection inspired by this year's Costume Institute exhibit, took the form of a late-night supper that saw a number of people who attended the evening's earlier parties, Gurung and Rousteing included.
