Naomi Watts, Dree Hemingway Toast Chloé x The Webster With NYFW Dinner

Naomi Watts, Dree Hemingway Toast Chloé x The Webster With NYFW Dinner
From WWD - February 9, 2018

In true Parisian style, dinner was held fashionably late Thursday evening in celebration of Natacha Ramsay-Levis debut collection forChlo, which justlaunched at The Webster Soho in New York. Appointed creative director of the French label last year, Ramsay-Levi, who on Wednesday night hosted a cocktail event at Saks after having just flown in from Europe, was fresh-faced as she greeted guests at a spacious Soho loft.

What is important for me isChlo isnt a brand where the clothes take over your own silhouette or personality, explained Ramsay-Levi, who co-hosted the event with The Websters founder Laure Hriard Dubreuil. My wish is that a woman can mix all of these clothes and make them personal.

The designer lent many personal touches to the eveningincluding a 16-mm film related to Steven Meisels campaign shootwhich was played on a loop beside the expansive banquet table. We wanted it to be like when you used to project home movies. Its this very intimate experience that I really try to push with the clothes.

Guests included Naomi Watts, accompanied by stylist Jeanann Williams, plus Dree Hemingway, Mia Goth and Indr Rockefeller. Im not very overwhelmed [by fashion week], admitted Watts, who is relishing in having some downtime between projects. Im not filming right now, but Im in that very tricky stage when youre trying to make decisions on a lot of different things. I have a few things Im considering, which is a nice position to be in so Im not complaining, but its highly pressurized because you want to make the right decision.

Artist Chloe Wise was feeling conflicted. I dont want to talk about fashion week because I should really be working on art, said the 27-year-old, who is compiling a portrait exhibition of a lot of friends slated to debut in Geneva in May. Some of [my portrait subjects] are here, but I cant say who. Im just really feeling so much guilt right now because I should be working, but I love dinner. You dont have to ask me twice to go to dinner.

Wise, who normally cooks for herself from the kitchen of her multimedia art studio, wasnt bothered by the 10 p.m. seating as she chatted with pals Sophie Koella and Haley Bennett, both of whom have appeared in Chlo campaigns.
