“Desperate Housewives” Costume Designer Cate Adair’s Armani Reception

Just the mention of Giorgio Armani and “Desperate Housewives” caused packs of black-clad fashionistas to flood Rodeo Drive, where the fashion house and Disney/ABC Television Group prexy Anne Sweeney recently hosted a cocktail party in honor of Cate Adair, the show’s Emmy-nominated costume designer.

Though Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher were surprising no-shows, most other cast members made their way to Armani’s BevHills flagship, including Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Nicollette Sheridan, Brenda Strong, James Denton and Alfre Woodard.

“I have the most amazing task, dressing great actors and actresses” said a grateful Adair. “And I get to be here, in one of the best fashion houses in the world.”

Fashion seemed to be on everyone’s mind, including Sweeney’s, who proudly announced that her elegant black dress was an Armani creation. Even show creator Marc Cherry appeared to be thinking about clothes: When asked how he was prepping for the Emmys, he replied, “I’m wearing an old suit that I paid way too much for and want to get some more wear out of.”
