UP-AND-COM­ING fash­ion stars got the chance to shine at the Coun­cil of Fash­ion De­sign­ers of Amer­ica (CFDA)/VOGUE Fash­ion Fund show, held by the pool at the Chateau Mar­mont in Los An­ge­les on Oct. 25 and hosted by James Cor­den (see p. 67), re­splen­dent in a Gucci suit.

As the 10 fi­nal­ists of the 2017 CFDA/VOGUE Fash­ion Fund showed their wares in a cat­walk pa­rade on a swel­ter­ing af­ter­noon— ten­nis ace Maria Shara­pova called it a “freak LA heat­wave”—celebs in the au­di­ence fanned them­selves and Cor­den sug­gested next year the event should take place with the guests in the pool in­stead of around it. “I think we’d have a damn good time!” he de­clared.

Guests in­clud­ing Selma Blair, Tracee El­lis Ross, Les­lie Odom Jr, Mil­lie Bobby Brown, Bil­lie Lourd, Zen­daya, the Haim sis­ters and Lav­erne Cox were of­fered Per­ri­erJouët cham­pagne and af­ter­noon tea on Kate Spade table­ware. “I feel very Elle Woods Legally Blonde first day at Har­vard,” said Cox, in cardi­gan and skirt by Kate Spade.

Fash­ion lu­mi­nar­ies also cast an eye over the of­fer­ings. “I al­ways wear a suit,” said de­signer Tom Ford, who men­tored last year’s win­ners, La-based Brock Col­lec­tion’s Laura Vas­sar Brock and Kristo­pher Brock. “Ev­ery­one al­ways thinks I’m dressed up, but it’s just lazi­ness.”

Ruby Rose slammed “body sham­ing” com­ments that is she’s too thin: “Ev­ery­one self dif­fer­ent. Even my own is dif­fer­ent month to month ... enough of this al­ready.” CA­REER BOOST The CFDA/VOGUE Fash­ion Fund helps emerg­ing de­sign­ers such as Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mul­leavy, who were run­ners-up in 2006. This year’s win­ner, to be an­nounced at a Nov. 6 gala, will score $US400,000 plus a mentor.
