“It was great,” Luciana told PEOPLE following the show, which she spent hand-in-hand with her husband. And though it was Matt’s first-ever fashion show, he had good reason being there: “He’s my pal,” Khan told reporters. “We were all just on holiday together in St. Barts and Barbuda. And I love them.”
However, he knows Matt’s talents lie in acting, not dressing. When asked if his friend was a fashionisto, he joked, “He’s not.”
The show, “about the dust and the decadence of India,” according to Khan, impressed the entire crowd, which included Top Chef judge Padma Lakshmi, who was seated next to the Damons. “They’re very sweet,” she said. “We all have kids, so that’s all we talked about.”
Before the show, the Damons kicked back in the Mercedes Benz Star Lounge, where they sipped champagne and stuck close to one another. And though Matt’s presence in the Lincoln Center tents definitely drew lots of attention — “I think [Luciana] probably would have preferred to not have him there, she was saying, because of all the photographers,” Lakshmi relayed — his presence made the fashion crowd swoon.
Said Lakshmi, “It was very sweet of him.”
