Emilio Pucci's Peter Dundas dressed both Carine Roitfeld and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld for Julia's intimate 30th birthday party, held at Indochine back in November. He also dressed a W reporter, who he then brought along to the fete. That reporter writes of the experience in W's February 2011 issue: "The music is deafening; the cigarette smoke is blinding; champagne is flowing copiously; canapes are being shunned. The dancing falls into two camps: conga line (Carine) versus on the banquette (Julia)." And later: "When I explain to the hostess [Carine] that I am writing a profile of Dundas and that I’d be grateful for a quote about the dress she’s wearing, she glares at me, then answers extremely slowly, with the labored patience of a teacher addressing an obtuse child: “Peter made. This dress. For me. It is Pucci. PUCCI.”

OOH .... interesting tidbit ... thanks for posting that, Tarsha!
I wonder what's up with Nicolas Ghesquiere and Balenciaga? Just making up and letting by gone be by gones? Or do you think that maybe there's something else in the works? After all, she needs a job ......
i'm really curious about this too! maybe some consulting for balenciaga could be in the works?
i'm so curious to see what direction she'll go in now that she's no longer with Vogue...
she certainly doesn't seem like on who would slink off and retire somewhere

I don't think she intends to "retire". She's too young for that and is so fully entrenched in the fashion business that I can't see her giving it all up. I think that she might have grown tired of the demands and pressures of being in charge of Vogue Paris ... so I bet that she's exploring other options. I'm anxious to find out what she's going to do next.
Not a huge fan of her make-up, but she definitely looked smoking hott a the Gucci Dinner.
I'm happy that she and Nicolas are back in good terms. I'm sure she'll consult for brands from now on. But if she consult for Balenciaga , that would be awesome.
