Neiman Marcus’ couture salon was reminiscent of Nina Ricci’s landmark avenue Montaigne boutique when mother–daughter duo Virginia Steppe and Alissa Maples (with husbands Dan Steppe and Kevin Maples at their side) hosted an intimate cocktail party for Nina Ricci’s creative director Peter Copping, in from Paris. The evening offered far more than mere cocktails, however: The complete Spring/Summer 2014 runway collection was flown in for the evening and the preceding day’s trunk show. Shepherding the stylish through the spring offerings was directrice of the store’s Couture salon, Liz Zaruba. Sophisticated ladies: Daisy Yu, Tia Neyman, Anne Hooper, Julie Rich, Shirl Charles, Sandra Winters, Theresa Roemer, Vivian Wise, Celina Hellmund with daughter Nina Brener-Hellmund, Linda Barrett, Teila Ebrahimi, Neshat Yazdi,
Guity Taghdisi, and Roya Taghdisi.
