From Jaden Smith’s metallic ensemble to Gemma Chan’s intricate dress, stars at the Louis Vuitton x British Vogue dinner proved that metals are all the rage this season.
Last Thursday night, guests from actor Jung Ho-yeon to screenwriter (and British Vogue cover girl) Michaela Coel, came together for an intimate Louis Vuitton x British Vogue dinner hosted by none other than editor-in-chief Edward Enninful and creative director Nicolas Ghesquière at London’s Louis Vuitton New Bond Street apartment.
The iconic French fashion house is known to host debonair small affairs that bring together notables and artisans across disciplines—a place of creative exchange and meaningful conversation. This time, collaborating with British Vogue, the scene was relaxed and private without skimping on the glitz of a star-studded evening. There was a decadent dinner prepared by Le Bar des Près’ chef Cyril Lignac and an after-party with DJ LeAm that ensued soon afterward.
Guests brought a dose of glamour to the fashionable gathering, clad in a myriad of textures and shimmery paillettes. The crowd, imbued with household names, fashion luminaries, and creatives, made sure to serve looks that capitalized on the dinner party aesthetic with unexpected elements in tow. Below, take a look at our favorite outfits from the eventful evening.
