Victoria Beckham and Anna Wintour hosted the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund event dinner at Bouchon Bistro in Beverly Hills on Thursday.
It was quite the day for Victoria, who attended the tea and fashion show sponsored by Audi earlier in the day. Dressed in one of her own designs, Victoria – who arrived without husband David – explained that she had a power outage at home.
"She said she had to get dressed in the dark to be on time for her evening hosting duties," a source tells PEOPLE.
The former Spice Girl even Tweeted, "Power cuts when you don't need them! Getting ready in the dark for the CFDA/Vogue dinner! X vb"
David stayed at home to manage the situation until everything was squared away. Later, he joined Victoria and about a hundred British Fashion Council Designers for dinner.
