Lionhead pendants, lacy see-through tops, gold pleated skirts and romantic floral embroideries comprised the dress code at Gucci’s San Francisco bash, held Tuesday evening at hot spot Octavia. The Vogue-hosted event paid homage to new creative director Alessandro Michele. Among the guests were artist Stevie Howell, Carolyn Chang, Sabrina Buell, Anne V., Lauren Ford and Kaitlyn Trigger.
“I’m crushing on this new fun and feminine version of Gucci because it offers romance and it’s a reminder of softer times,” said architect Abigail Turin as she twirled in her pleated gold skirt black top, brooch and her grandmother’s black taffeta evening clutch, all Gucci. “These pieces are so versatile. I could wear this gold skirt with a T-shirt to a beach party.”
Art dealer Jessica Silverman, a host for the evening, found her personal style in a new navy jacket with white piping and narrow jeans. “The art world is so exciting now and every day is intense so I love to dive into the world of fashion,” said Silverman, whose Tenderloin gallery and emerging artists are favorites of Silicon Valley art collectors. “Fashion is fantasy.”

Glamour Luncheon Toasts Women in TV

ONES TO WATCH: Glamour magazine added to the pre-Emmy buzz taking place off-camera, with a lunch to honor women in television today.
The private event was held on the rooftop of the Tory Burch boutique overlooking Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and drew actresses and others in the industry, including Kate Bosworth, Amanda Peet, Abigail Breslin and Emmy nominees such as Khandi Alexander.
Roles offered to women have evolved and television’s importance as a way for women to bond has increased over time, said Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive.
“The connection between women and characters and the shows they like is much deeper than it was before and then, at the same time, you’ve seen TV start to finally clue in that if you provide interesting, nuanced roles for women then you’re going to attract great talent, great writers, great directors, great women actors and also audiences,” she said. “To me, and I’m an outsider out here in Hollywood, but it seems to me that the roles are much richer and more nuanced in films than they were for women.”
For some, such as Alexander, who is a nominee in the guest actress in a drama category for her work on “Scandal,” the

Gola Toasts 110th Anniversary in L.A.

A KICK IN L.A.: U.K. sneaker brand Gola is coming to California to celebrate its 110th anniversary with a pop-up shop at Fred Segal Santa Monica and a party on Friday night. The brand, which has been distributed in the U.S. for a decade, recently set up its own distribution Stateside, along with a Nordstrom partnership. “From a U.S. point of view, our distribution has been much more East Coast so we’re looking to branch out in the West,” said Gola president Tony Evans. The pop-up, which will be open for four weeks, will feature a museumlike installation of the brand’s print advertisements and greatest moments in soccer — or football — history. “A lot of new brands come along every week or every month it seems, but to have a heritage is a great U.S. play for us,” said Evans, who noted that Gola’s classic styles Harrier, Comet, Quota and Equipment have been trending strongly here. The men’s Made in England collection will launch exclusively at Fred Segal, while Barcelona retailer Limited Editions will collaborate on three styles to celebrate the anniversary.
