Fendi brought touches of Rome to Paris on Wednesday night, installing fountains amidst the tropical greenery in the courtyard of the Petit Palais and serving a sumptuous, summery dinner under the frescoed ceiling of its peristyle. The weather, however, was more Scottish than Italian, as a cool breeze and a smattering of rain whipped through the party.

Fluffy white fabric throws were passed out to the likes of Clotilde Courau and Dolores Chaplin. Before sitting down at a table hosted by Karl Lagerfeld and luxury titan Bernard Arnault, Sharon Stone enthused about a few glorious months she spent in the Eternal City while filming a John Frankenheimer movie.

French singer Soko said she’s in Paris between gigs in Poland and Austria and brought along gear to finish up her second album. She held out fingernails decorated with smiley faces. “I was going to put aliens on them, but I thought it might look weird,” she deadpanned.

Earlier, guests checked out the brand’s new Avenue Montaigne flagship and ogled an exhibition of photos Lagerfeld took of Roman fountains. Other guests at the boutique cocktail, which spilled out onto the pavement, included Naomie Harris, Valérie Donzelli, Delfina Delettrez Fendi and Melissa George.
