Stella McCartney Gets Ready for Fall

The designer feted her new collection.

What: Stella McCartney‘s Pre-Fall 2014 presentation.

When: Monday, January 13th

Where: The Harold Pratt House on Park Avenue in New York, where each room held a different surprise. The main ground-floor space had a Candyland theme, with tables of colorful confections, a chocolate fountain and a table of marzipan and cake renditions of McCartney’s signature handbags. Upstairs, one room was all kid’s play with a mini cars and a hopscotch game (in which models gleefully partook); opposite was a double-decker library with live music. “Someone should have a wedding here,” remarked Blythe Danner as she made the rounds with daughter-in-law artist Taryn Simon.

Who: Models in McCartney’s printed and all-black ensembles and a few of the designer’s famous friends: Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler, Alec Baldwin, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Why: For one, how often do you see models actually having fun in the clothes? The spirit was clearly infectious. Diana Taylor made one of her first post-First Lady of New York public appearances wearing a sparkly frock and fishnet tights.
