Zoe posed with her mom, Lisa Bonet, as they made their way inside. Lily Collins swung by, as did Pharrell Williams. The fun continued after the bash when Karl hosted a dinner at Balthazar in SoHo with guests Lily, Zoe, Penn, Linda, and others. Check out even more pictures from Chanel's Little Black Jacket soiree.

Vanessa Paradis played host at last night's special dinner celebrating Chanel's new Rouge Coco de Chanel lipsticks. Kate Bosworth also put on one of Karl Lagerfeld's designs for the event, which brought out a crowd including Rachel Zoe, Nina Garcia, and more. The attendees are gearing up for Fashion Week, which starts tomorrow, but Vanessa and Kate had love on the mind before Valentine's Day. Vanessa made a rare comment on her longtime love, Johnny Depp, saying, "I like him very much in all terms and every sense of the way . . . He makes me happy. We are many things — we are together and, in a way, one person."
Kate, meanwhile, was all about her own guy, Alexander Skarsgard, despite arriving at the bash with socialite and Born Rich director Jamie Johnson. "We are very good friends," she said of Alex. "He's a wonderful, wonderful man. I adore him." The stylish crowd moved on after their meal to the club Good Units for Interview magazine's 40th anniversary party, where Kate was spotted letting loose with Vogue writer Derek Blasberg as Chloe Sevigny, Mary-Kate Olsen, and her boyfriend Nate Lowman danced nearby.

Keith Richards's daughters, Alexandra and Theodora, are currently the faces of French Connection's latest ad campaign. And following suit are their festive shots for the Christmas collection. The rockin' sisters, along with two other models, can be found posing sassily in sequins (per Theodora, left), tuxedo blazers, leather, and metallics. It's a collection fit for a glam roller.
>> Housed within the confines of the small Ohio Theater tonight were models on boxes, sporting Doc Martens and Anna Larson's debut Erro collection. Larson's target girl is a "modern nomad," and she embodies Erro, which means "stray" in Latin, through easy-to-wear, layerable pieces in white and shades of gray.
Bliss Lau contributed jewelry and her leather treatment skills to the Spring 2010 collection — the lambskin was crocheted, hand-distressed, and perforated; former Eventide designer and current stylist Christian Stroble consulted and styled; and Alexandra Richards was hidden above the crowd in the back, mixing the soundtrack. The pieces were visibly made of high-quality materials — always good for first impressions from a new designer — and the whole sensibility was mirrored by Larson herself, who was spotted chatting to Vogue's Mark Holgate sporting all black, goth-girl black hair, and heavy black eyeliner.

Alexandra Richards attended Canada's MuchMusic Awards looking like a stylish raver chick! I like it. She opted for a vivid strapless mini dress, topped with a black cardigan, and finished with Christian Louboutin sandals. She kept her accessories to a minimum, but that's probably a good idea seeing as how loud her frock is.
