She was already back in London last night enjoying a pint with her, could-he be?, new boyfriend Luke Pritchard, front-man of The Kooks. But before drinks in North London's Kilburn she attended Dior Couture along with Dita Von Tesse and Marion Cotillard and partied with Giambattista Valli to celebrate her birthday, which was on Saturday.
It's all part of the uplifting mood that has swept through the couture shows. At Dior, John Galliano told journalists backstage, 'There's a credit crunch, not a creative crunch. Of course, everyone is being more careful with their discretionary purchases. I am. But it's our job to make people dream, and to provide the value in quality, cut, and imagination.'
Yesterday Galliano celebrated colour, femininity and fantasy with his couture collection inspired by his houses' founder Christian Dior and great Dutch painters including Vermeer and Van Dyke.
Giorgio Armani's vision, he debuted his Armani Prive collection too, referenced Shanghai in the thirties, and the fashion that emerged after the great depression (no coincidence in these credit crunched times).
