The Rebecca Taylor Spring 2009 Show took place on Day 7 of Fashion Week, and the collection lived up to her name - very feminine, pretty, a bit sexy and overall versatile. The Spring Rebecca Taylor girl is an uber stylish world traveler whose fashion sense is a mix of simple, clean and natural chic with references to the 1970's.
After the show, 40 plus VIPs headed to Artisanal Bistro & Wine Bar just a few blocks from the tent, to a party hosted by social darlings Mina-Jacqueline Au, Anisha Lakhani & Jill Fairchild, all dressed in shades of pinks and creams Rebecca Taylor frocks. Guests were presented with an array of wine & cheese pairings at the cocktail as well as fondues served with crudites and fingerlings. Amongst guests' favorite were baskets full of Gougeres which socialite Emma Snowdon-Jones and host Mina-Jacqueline Au were seen hogging over.
Guests were an eclactic mix of socialites, tastemakers and on-screen faces: Tea Diva Tracy Stern, singer Prince's ex-wife Manuela Testolini, actress Rashida Jones, model Maggie Rizer, friends of hosts Chessy Wilson, Melissa Foss, Edward Barsamian, Patty Raynes, Douglas Marshall, Stephanie Wei, Anna Victor, Susan Shin, Real Housewives of New York City Ramona Singer, and the guest of honor's mother Patricia Taylor.
All the ladies at the cocktail walked away with a divine goody bag that contained a copy of host Anisha Lakhani's best-seller "Schooled", a limited edition Rebecca Taylor lipgloss, a limited edition Rebecca Taylor glitter belt / scarf and a $50 gift certificate to Artisanal's sister restaurant, Picholine.
