Inside Paris Fashion Week AW11’s Hottest Party

If there’s anything that’ll pull in a cooler crowd than the Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci front row, it’s the after-party, and last night fashion’s finest took over the very cool L’Arc restaurant in Paris to celebrate the AW11 collection. Florence Welch was working the room, flitting between cosying up to Riccardo Tisci and Kanye West to Kate Moss, while Liv Tyler, weirdly enough wearing the same T-shirt as Mr West, partied with model pal Frankie Rayder. Something tells us she didn’t see that one coming! But it was Nicole Richie who really got the VIP treatment, looking sleek in a Givenchy leather dress and topknot hairstyle, she joined Tisci at a table overflowing with Moët before being introduced to industry queen Carine Roitfeld. With rumours flying round Paris Fashion Week AW11 that the Givenchy designer, with Carine Roitfeld as his stylist, is in pole position to take over from John Galliano at Christian Dior, we’d give our right arm to be a fly on the wall during that conversation!
