Runway Rock: Miu Miu Resort Was All About the '80s
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kate Moss and Amber Heard arrived in Parisian black, while tunes by Depeche Mode and Axel Bauer played on the Club Miu Miu runway.
Prada’s sassier little sister Miu Miu played coy with Paris Couture Week, throwing possibly the biggest bash of the week for her resort collection the night before the official calendar kicked off.
Maggie Gyllenaal and hubby Peter Sarsgaard, Kate Moss, Emmanuelle Alt, Amber Valletta, Amber Heard, Dianna Agron, Marc Jacobs and French starlet Celine Sallette were among those who mingled in the outdoor garden. Leaving nothing to chance, even Club Miu Miu branded matches were given to every guest entering the patio, in case one wanted to light up (it is France, after all). There was plenty of champagne, plates of pasta and risotto and Miu Miu margaritas served by some of the best-looking waiters we’ve seen in Paris, even if they were dressed like sailors.
Models entered an elevated runway built on scaffolding, momentarily confusing seated guests as to where they were walking. The audience got a peek at the collection of gold lamé trenches, cerulean blue and red striped dresses, and laser cutout white bell skirts from the dance floor below.

Early '80s hits were the soundtrack of the show, with Gary Numan’s "Metal," Depeche Mode’s "Everything Counts," Axel Bauer’s "Cargo" and Gina X. Performance’s "Nice Mover" accompanying the catwalkers.
Lindsey Wixson strutted in a black pencil skirt and blouse with red sequined birds and pointed striped flats, complete with Chrissie Hynde hair.
Then "one-night only" Club Miu Miu turned the Palais d’Iena into a rowdy club full of drag queens and models dancing to more '80s hits, from Madonna and Snap, into the wee hours of the morning.
