Last night the usual coterie of fashion types including models, editors, along with bold face names such as Eva Longoria, James Ferragamo, Nicky Hilton, Phillip Bloch and Azealia Banks took in the stunning views of the city for one of a kind celebration. The guests gathered at the McKittrick Hotel to fête Salvatore Ferragamo’s latest online project L’Icona and celebrated 35 years of the iconic Vara shoe as the music of Alexandra Richards filled the vernal air.
Starting today, as part of the now iconic Vara shoe 35th anniversary promotions, visitors to Ferragamo’s Icona site will take a gander through the digital portrait collection of Cairbone Swanson Frank featuring gorgeous portraits of 21 fashionable women –including Camilla Belle, Jessica Hart, Lake Bell, Lauren Santo Domingo, Olivia Palermo, Alexandra Richards, Elettra Weidemann, Sophie Auster, Lauren Remington Platt, Amanda Hearst and Lily Aldridge. The fashionable women–hand picked by Massimiliano Giornetti (Ferragamo’s creative director)–were snapped wearing a custom pair of Vara. The Vara, a lovely shoe with grosgrain bow and features a gold plaque etched with the Ferragamo logo, has adorned the feet of beautiful for 35 years and given huge celebration last night will continue for many years to come.
The celebration included a photo-booth decked with a floral background, a performance from Sophie Auster, and a slew a well-dressed ladies in Vara flats. Take a peek at the pictures from the evening.
