Alice + Olivia & Domingo Zapata

Stacey Bendet is not one to shy away from a little color.

With pieces including a stunning hand-painted ball gown and custom leather bustier, it's no surprise that so many fashion A-listers came out to celebrate the collab - even DVF made an appearance! Enjoying dinner and beverages provided by Peroni, guests celebrated and appreciated the beginning of this elegant union between fashion and art. Click through for an inside look!
