Thursday

midnight boom.



The invitation, which many of us were clutching in a bit of a sweaty panic outside the Hotel Eden, stipulated that the Gucci Resort show would start at 7:30 p.m., the dinner an hour later, and then the Goldfrapp performance that was to follow that at around 10 p.m. Odd, then, that about a dozen editors and fashion fans were pacing, smoking, and gossiping (some of us doing all three at once) outside the hotel, waiting for the promised transport to the venue well after the designated start time. "It's coming," someone who had spoken to someone at the event said, adding that even though it was 8 p.m., no one was at the venue yet. "But don't worry. Rome is late, always." Indeed, the show started more than an hour behind its scheduled time and Goldfrapp made its debut around midnight.

earlier this week i received not only the obvious e-invitation reminder of gucci's first worldwide webcasted fashion show in my inbox, but also a little insider note with the hint that my favourite band might be playing the after party. (imagine my excitement) i waited, almost patiently, until today to make this post, because just today were the rumours put to rest & the photos surfaced.



chic hotels, gorgeous clothes, an audience of fabulous editors & designers, a lovely intimate dinner & an after party with models "wolf whistling and dancing" to alison goldfrapp et band up on stage? is there really any better way of concocting the perfect fashion show?

ah, if only it would have been lanvin or viktor & rolf instead...
