Chateau Marmont is always a haute place to hang out, but when a crowd that includes Gwen Stefani, Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio gathers, you know the reason is important. That reason would be Emanuel Ungaro Creative Director Fausto Puglisi, who was feted with an intimate dinner at the hotel last week.

The event was hosted by Barneys New York and stylists Arianne Phillips and B. Akerlund, ladies who have known the designer well since he lived in Los Angeles during his 20s.

Alongside the aforementioned celebrities, Shirley Manson, Angela Lindvall, Fergie, Rose Apodaca, Tomoko Ogura and Liberty Ross were among the partygoers that gathered at Chateau’s Bungalow One last Thursday to fete Puglisi all wearing, Ungaro, of course.

Puglisi is best known for his outrageous designs, and has even had his work compared to that of Gianni Versace. He launched his namesake collection back in 2006, and by 2012 was named creative director of Emanuel Ungaro in Paris.
