Michael Kors may call New York home, but London—which he references as a “continuous source of inspiration”—has always been dear to the designer’s heart. So it makes sense that the new flagship opening on Regent Street was a particularly star-studded affair, with friends and fans of the brand jetting in from around the world to help him celebrate the opening of his largest European store.
And what a celebration it was. Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Chastain brought the Hollywood star power, while Solange Knowles had all eyes on her in a pair of glittering crystal-beaded Michael Kors Collection pants. Fresh off the announcement of Michael Kors’ partnership with the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team, drivers Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso joined in the celebrations, while a shimmer of supermodels including Elle Macpherson, Natasha Poly and Arizona Muse lent some high-fashion edge. A dose of royalty, courtesy of Princess Olympia of Greece, rounded out the crowd of A-listers.
