There were plenty of high-profile soirees to keep the fash pack on their toes this week. In the UK, the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Final in West Sussex brought the likes of Christopher Kane, Henry Holland, and Jade Williams out in the rain for some good old-fashioned polo fun, while over in London, the European premiere of The Dark Knight Rises brought stunning looks from Marion Cottilard and Anne Hathaway.
In New York, Sergio Rossi creative director Francesco Russo joined Barneys in feteing the opening of its freshly-renovated shoe floor; Rachel Chandler and Filipa Fino were among the well-heeled who joined Simon Doonan to ogle the designer offerings whilst noshing on tiny ice cream cones. Across town and later that same evening, Hudson jeans celebrated the release of its Cabaret campaign with a party hosted by the campaign's star, Georgia May Jagger. A dj set by Au Revoir Simone and a live performance by Dragonette kept guests Leigh Lezark and Aimee Ruby dancing all night long.
But perhaps the most talked-about event of the week was Louis Vuitton's Shanghai takeover. In honor of the reopening on the brand's giant China flagship store, Marc Jacobs not only shipped over the brand's Fall 2012 show-opening locomotive, he also whisked over a gaggle of super-chic guests. Among them? Derek Blasberg, Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevigne, Clemence Poésy, and Candace Lake.
A peek at all that — plus looks from Diane Kruger, Mischa Barton, and more — here in the slideshow.
