Yesterday afternoon Narciso Rodriguez was feted by longtime friend Jessica Alba and the Barneys New York team with a luncheon at Fred’s. The occasion? The arrival of Rodriguez’s XO Exclusively Ours shoe collection, which has taken up residence on the newly glamourized shoe floor.

Alba looked particularly smashing in a strappy number from the designer’s 2013 resort collection, which she accessorized with a sleek chain-strap bag and two-tone d’Orsay pumps by Rodriguez, of course. The actress mingled with editors and familiar Barneys faces like Mark Lee, Daniella Vitale, Dennis Freedman, Charlotte Blechman and Simon Doonan and then noshed on lobster salad (a Fred’s tradition) before heading down to the 5th floor to see the new collection in situ. 

Check out the photo recap of the event below—or better yet, get thee to Barneys to see the Narciso Rodriguez collection for yourself!
