Harper’s Bazaar ‘Icons’ Party Closes NYFW

As the abounding New York Fashion Week spring 2016 has come to its end, all the “participants” of the event wish for one thing only – rest! But the wish goes secondary, when an influential figure like Carine Roitfeld organizes a huge event like Harper’s Bazaar “Icons” Party in Plaza Hotel and invites them to it. Famous celebrities, It girls, designers and just beauties attended the party dedicated to Roitfeld’s Sept. 2015 “Icons” portfolio for Harper’s Bazaar shot by the iconic fashion photographer Jean Paul Goude. The portfolio includes fabulous photos of such celebrity as Oprah, Mariah Carrey, Dakota Johnson and Katy Perry. The party was especially thrilling, as Miss Perry appeared there not only as a center figure of the portfolio shots, but as a musical guest as well. Wearing a chic R’n’B inspired Phillip Treacy for Alexander McQueen butterfly dress first and then changing into a performance outfit of B. Akerlund gown, the style diva left everyone jaw-dropped singing hits like “Roar” and “Teenage Dream”.

Of course, the event had a special dress code – “Fantasy Evening Attire”. One after another, the attendees were arriving donning the most exquisite gowns ever. Most of the guests were the models that make up the chief part of any fashion week. Gigi Hadid with her sister Bella, Kendall Jenner, Doutzen Kroez, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Donaldson, Anna Cheveland were among the runway divas who looked as fabulous as on magazine covers. The cameras could not but demonstrate the elegance of the long white halter-neck dress on Kendall, or the long-sleeve black-and-white short dress (from the H&M x Balmain collection, by the way) that sat on Gigi like a second skin. Among the most famous celeb guests were Rita Ora in a flattering black gown, Kate Upton, Mariah Carrey and Bella Thorne, who wore no less swanky outfits (all in black, as well) shining at the party like stars. Of course, such fashion figures as Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu were also among the very important guests, which made the gathering even more filled with couture vibe. The hostess Carine herself looked fantastic in a silver sequin gown and bold torn-up tights.

The atmosphere there was an eccentric mixture of high-fashion, evening elegance and fun! Yes, I mean it. It was a real party with all drinks, songs, dances and stuff to make the closing of New York Fashion Week as memorable and sleek as possible. Accompanied by the crazy lights and music, everyone was dressing in sparkles and having a party to the fullest next to the bar. An hour before the event would finish, Harper’s Bazaar debuted a short movie-clip, which showed the behind-the-scenes shots and gave the idea of how the portfolio was made. Only after this Katy appeared on stage and performed her five-song strand, during which she sent heart-warming and sometimes funny-sarcastic messages like when she said that the song “I kissed a girl” was for Mariah Carrey for her opening way to many artists. Although she never stood up from her seat, she definitely got the heat. Anyway, we could not imagine a party with all camera-lovers in to go without scandals or intrigues. The show was a loud one, which served as a defining full stop to the fashion fuss we have been the evidence of lately.
