On Sunday night in Paris, Givenchy turned the historical Maison des Polytechniciens into the full-blown house party of your surrealist dreams. The landmark of a mansion, which has never hosted a fashion party, featured nine thematic salons meant to somewhat mirror the brand's recent advertising campaign with acclaimed photographer Steven Meisel.

Guests were greeted by an insanely tall butler (like, 8+ feet) before entering a room that would be any TV lover's dream: dozens of screens played imagery of Givenchy's Spring 2018 collection designed by Clare Waight Keller, whom the party was meant to celebrate. Later, guests found a bustling dance party that featured performances from Sevdaliza, Tsar B, Karen Elson, and DJ Romy of the XX.

Upstairs, attendees found a video game arcade, a lovely balcony to enjoy the oddly warm Parisian night, and even a fortune teller. But we likely don't need a master of the divinity arts to predict Givenchy's future; Keller's addition to the iconic brand as Artistic Director is putting a gloriously fun and invitingly funky spin on things, and we're all for it. Peep through the slideshow below for a look inside the festivities.
