When it comes to party dressing, no one does it with quite the level of finesse as Kate Moss, the ’90s supermodel who’s responsible for wearing one of the most iconic naked dresses of all time. Her 50th birthday party was never going to be an exception. For the momentous occasion, which started with lunch at Brasserie Lipp in Paris’s Saint-Germain district, Moss hosted an intimate dinner at Laurent followed by an after-party at the famed Ritz Paris. While her low-key lunch was more of a “leggings and fur coat” type of affair, according to a photo posted on the Instagram account of Brasserie Lipp chef Pascal Jounault, the evening’s lineup of activities called for a far more festive getup.
While en route to Laurent alongside her daughter Lila Moss, boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck, and friend Haider Ackermann, the birthday girl was spotted donning a floor-length sheer dress made entirely of black lace. With it, she added a bevy of diamond jewelry, including bracelets and earrings, and a black Alexandra King cape lined with gold silk. Given the winter temperatures, later on in the evening, she appeared to have swapped her cape for a much warmer piece of outerwear: A Penny Lane–esque Bob Mackie coat that makeup entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury arrived at Laurent in, according to W.
