Lanvin Paris and philanthropist and Nevada Ballet Theatre Board Member Audra Baldwin invited 75 of Las Vegas’ elite to an exclusive rendezvous at her home on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Catered by Honey Salt with beverages provided by Southern Wine & Spirits, this intimate luncheon featured a fashion presentation of the Lanvin Hiver 2013 Runway Collection and preview of the Ete 2014 Pre-Collection by Alber Elbaz — an exclusive first look at the French fashion houses’ latest collections.

Students from the ballet’s Future Dance Program, which serves underprivileged youth, along with Audra Baldwin’s daughter, Skyler, greeted guests and offered fans and parasols while adorned in Petite Lanvin.

Some of Las Vegas’ most affluent society ladies (and a few gentlemen) attended including Susan Molasky, Stella Roy, Madeleine Andress, Sheryl Goldstein, Nancy Houssels, Andrea Marnell, Sonja Saltman, Farid Matraki, Wendy Plaster, Michael Shulman and Jane Schorr, in addition to Lanvin executive vice president Cecile Andrau, NBT executive director and CEO Beth Barbre and Christos Garkinos, co-owner of international shopping destination Decades and star of Bravo TV’s “Kings of Melrose.”

The afternoon ended with a sneak peak into a 4,000-square-foot “Lanvin Pop-Up” where clothes, handbags, shoes and jewelry from the fall 2013 collection and resort wear collection were displayed for guests. An exciting raffle experience was offered, affording one special guest the opportunity to attend the press presentation of the Lanvin Fall/Winter 2014 Pre-Collection in New York City, including a meet and greet with Lanvin artistic director Alber Elbaz.
