The main event will always take top billing, but increasingly an after party is where the real action can be found. The lights might be lower, but expectations are often higher for such occasions as they take a life of their own. The August 2016 issue of Numéro gets a piece of the action in a story by photographer Victor Demarchelier featuring Lia Pavlova. Titled “After Party,” this Charles Varenne-styled story draws back the curtain on this imagined world in which the glamor is not without its smudges and other affirmations of a life lived to the maximum. Lia as ever is at the heart of the party, or rather, this after party, where she is flanked by rocker boys and is shown wearing a multicolor leopard printed grain de poudre coat with nappa leather details by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. After party, party after, party party!
