Prolific designer Tom Ford was among the first guests to arrive and when asked to pose for a photo with fellow guests, he gave a polite smirk before stating he “never poses with models, only Carine Roitfeld”.

Stefano Tonchi was seen capturing an array of photos on the pop up’s steps, while Kris Jenner, Corey Gamble, and Tommy & Dee Hilfiger sampled the scents before heading off to an intimate dinner in the SoHo neighborhood.
