To celebrate the start of New York Fashion Week, luxury jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels treated fashion forward celebrities like Demi Moore (in Lanvin) and Mischa Barton (in Roberto Cavalli) to a night in Paris to celebrate their collection of one of a kind baubles.

How do you shop for diamonds when you're famous? You let them come to you.
