Sipping Perrier Jouet pink champagne and lychee martini's scattered with rose petals, celebrities, fashion industry insiders, friends of ELLE and Viktor & Rolf took in the breath taking new retrospective of the Dutch design duo's career so far - the highlight of which is a giant, 28 foot dolls house that has been constructed to house miniature recreations of the labels greatest designs, worn by porcelain dolls.
'It's completely taken my breath away', said an emotional Roisin Murphy, one of their biggest fans who was brought to tears when she saw the magical dolls house.
Mischa Barton, who is living in Paris at the moment came to London especially for the event, wearing Viktor & Rolf - natch, while Kelly Osbourne told us that the duo are one of her favourite labels.
At last night's event, ELLE's editor- in chief Lorraine Candy spoke of Viktor & Rolf's monumental achievement and how the duo fuse the world's of fashion and art seamlessly before it was off to the after party at Masonic Temple Room of the ANDAZ Hotel in London's East End.
