Alexa Chung co-hosted Carven's spring collection trunk show at Barneys yesterday. Newly appointed creative ambassador-at-large Simon Doonan was there, and told us he's just returned from trunk shows around the country with Carven's French designer Guillaume Henry. "Guilaume is an important new voice in fashion," Doonan told Chic Report. "I just went to LA, Chicago and San Fran with him and in every city, people were already aware of him." Which American city stole the Frenchie's heart? "I can't say I have a favorite place," he said diplomatically. "I love them all." Doonan, meanwhile, was optimistic about his new role. "I was always involved in events and PR, but it's a little more skewed in that direction," he says. "The big change for me is not designing the windows anymore, which I'm very comfortable with. I was worried that as I head toward sixty that I was going to become the world's oldest window dresser. It's almost a little monkey off my back."
