Katie Holmes, Nicky Hilton, model Coco Rocha, Huma Abedin, Jasmine Sanders and Jenny Mollen came out to designer Stacey Bendet’s fashion show this weekend to check out looks based on 1960s Pop Art.
Among the collection were a number of dresses featuring the work of late famed artist Thomas K. Wesselmann, a founding member of the Judson gallery whose work is shown all over the world.
Bendet tells us she worked with the estate of the artist, who passed in 2004, to come up with the looks ahead of retrospective at Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris showing later this year.
Bendet managed to pull off a successful show despite getting sick a week before.
“I got COVID last week so that caused a little drama,” she told us. “I was like, ‘This can’t be real.’ I never get the sniffles. I worked from home so no one else got sick. That was a little hiccup.”
And there is yet another Baldwin family model.
Hailey Bieber’s cousin Brooks Baldwin made her star turn at the presentation posing in a long black skirt with big white bows. Baldwin is the daughter of Billy Baldwin and Wilson Phillips singer Chynna Phillips, who also attended the show.
Hilton was spotted taking in the designs in a pink beaded dress by Bendet.
“She is one of my best friends, but for me, this is a brand I wear week in and week out in my every day life and on the red carpet,” Hilton told us. “Stacey has so much fun with fashion. Everything is beautiful, sparkly and over the top, like her.”
