W Reporter Recounts a Tale of Carine Roitfeld Being Snippy, Talks Sex with Peter Dundas

>> Emilio Pucci's Peter Dundas dressed both Carine Roitfeld and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld for Julia's intimate 30th birthday party, held at Indochine back in November. He also dressed a W reporter, who he then brought along to the fete. That reporter writes of the experience in W's February 2011 issue: "The music is deafening; the cigarette smoke is blinding; champagne is flowing copiously; canapes are being shunned. The dancing falls into two camps: conga line (Carine) versus on the banquette (Julia)." And later: "When I explain to the hostess [Carine] that I am writing a profile of Dundas and that I’d be grateful for a quote about the dress she’s wearing, she glares at me, then answers extremely slowly, with the labored patience of a teacher addressing an obtuse child: 'Peter made. This dress. For me. It is Pucci. PUCCI.'"

Dundas, for his part, enlightened the reporter on how he keeps his tan: “I’m building this house in Greece, and there’s a fantastic hippie beach where they go nude nearby.…” His thoughts on sex: “The truth is, it’s something that’s incredibly important to me. I think it should be important to everybody. I mean, it’s fantastic. It’s why we’re here.” And how he ends up making such sexy dresses for Pucci: “It’s not that I think, Oh, I need to make the dress sexy. It’s that the body is just so beautiful to me. The same way that when you make love to somebody many times, you notice different parts of the body, and you celebrate them.”
