Stella McCartney's Garden Party Had Guevara and Castro Impersonators

Illustration for article titled Stella McCartney's Garden Party Had Guevara and Castro Impersonators

On Monday, Fashion designer Stella McCartney presented her 2016 resort collection at a Cuba-themed garden party in Nolita, Manhattan. Guests included big names like Cara Delevingne, Miranda Kerr, Liv Tyler, and—most noteworthy of all—two men posing as Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. Not present: anyone who’s suffered through Castro’s half-a-century-long dictatorship. How fun!


Here, two models—both wearing thousands of dollars worth of clothing—oversee a conversation between Castro and great communist revolutionary Che Guevara. Che would have been disgusted, but who cares? Those necklines—and those mini cuban sandwiches being carried around by the cater waiters—look divine!

Isn’t just delightful to see two of the most important men in the history of both Cuba and communism get trotted out as party tricks at an event exclusively attended by rich people? I know I’m having a great time!

Some ideas for McCartney’s upcoming collection presentations: Sensual Stalin! Kim Jong’s Krazy Korea! Stella McCartney’s Joseph McCarthy! Mobutu SEXY Seko! The possibilities are endless.
