After a long rainy Saturday running from show to show, the fashion crowd appeared more than ready for a night of letting off some steam — and the Frame dinner, a NYFW weekend tradition — proved just the thing.
Taking over Jean’s, the new club that is soon to debut its restaurant (a peek of the menu was provided for Saturday’s dinner), Frame’s Erik Torstensson played host to a cocktail party and dinner in celebration of the brand’s upcoming winter campaign, alongside cohost Gisele Bündchen.
Guests included Justin Theroux, Sarita Choudhury, Phoebe Tonkin, Sarah Hyland, Ego Nwodim, Annabelle Wallis, Andreea Diaconu, Pat Cleveland, Deon Hinton, Poppy Delevingne, Daria Strokous, Dilone, Eve Jobs, Maria Borges, Peter Dundas, Jenna Lyons, Cass Bird and more.
Natalie Massenet’s daughter, Isabella Massenet, provided the soundtrack, while her boyfriend Achileas of Greece, hung out with his sister, Olympia of Greece. The siblings posed for photos with Delevingne, who is dating their older brother (if you can keep any of that straight, good on you).
Seated at the long table in the middle of the restaurant, Bündchen was holding court, dressed in a Frame denim jacket dress and a pair of heels for the occasion.
“I love denim. Today I’m wearing a jacket as a dress, and that’s a first for me. I decided to do that because I was like you know what, I always just wear jeans, I always just wear pants. I wear jeans pretty much every day. I like jeans and a white tank top,” the model said. “Denim is great because you can wear it dressy, with heels it makes it cool. I like all kinds of denim: tight and high waisted or boyish. It kind of works for anything. It’s a key piece in my closet.”
Despite being a seasoned fashion-month pro, Bündchen said she’s limiting herself to a more tame schedule this time around.
“I don’t really do the fashion month like most people do it anymore. I literally just came in just last night and I’m leaving tomorrow,” Bündchen said. “I did that when I was in my 20s. Now I’m in my 40s. I already have a more balanced schedule. I feel like I’ve paid my dues.”
