West News Wire: While injecting rock music into designer Hedi Slimane’s “Age of Indieness” show Thursday night in front of a star-studded audience, Celine launched a new range of clothing into the Hollywood spotlight.
The fashion designer debuted dazzling black and gold gowns, fake fur coats, sleek leather leggings, and jackets and coats with gold buttons at their show at the Wiltern theatre, a historic Los Angeles landmark. The White Stripes’ rock-infused “Hello Operator” played in the background as each model strutted down the catwalk showcasing the most recent collection from the fashion company.
Several famous people and artists, including Cindy Crawford, Doja Cat, Brie Larson, Justin Hoffman, Paris Hilton, Kid Cudi, Paris Jackson, Ava Phillippe, Wiz Khalifa, and Courteney Cox, were present to witness the co-ed runway. Crawford observed as Kaia, her daughter, Kaia Gerber, strutted in a glittery gold dress.
Slimane incorporated men and womenswear. Some of the pieces worn were red blazers with gold trims, high-heeled black leather boots, black suits and gold feathers hanging from jackets.
Once the show finished, Slimane briefly marched onstage holding Gerber’s hand, waved and took a bow at audience members mostly dressed in black who stood and applauded his fashion efforts.
The fall/winter fashion show ultimately turned into a big party in the lobby area as attendees were served food and drinks before being graced by live performances lasting a couple hours in the theater.
A night centered around rock aesthetics was wrapped up with performances by Iggy Pop, The Strokes, Interpol and The Kills.
