Brits, Bafta's and Fashion week!
Monday 28 February 2011
So we had the Brits and the Baftas and God knows what else, then Fashion Week descended. With our columnist Katie Banks over in LA hunting down the very best Oscars gossip for you all, the rest of us hit the super swanky parties for the beautiful people and had a great time. Obviously while feeling somewhat shorter and wider than most of our fellow attendees, but excellent nevertheless.
PPQ’s after party at Sky Bar was full of fashionistas, and while downing Ciroc Vodka cocktails we noticed Shayne Ward’s girlfriend looking rather peeved at new girlband Rio Girls (us neither) vying for his attention. At Felder and Felder’s Belvedere-sponsored party at Movida, T4’s Jameela Jamil turned up straight from the William Tempest show. Unfortunately, we noticed she forgot to swap her dress for a Felder number – whoops, fashion faux pas darling!
Meanwhile, Wyld at the W London hotel in Leicester Square hosted the after party for menswear designer James Small’s Autumn/Winter collection, and when not holding court with famous pals Natt Weller, Mark Ronson and Jarvis Cocker about the UK cinema scene, Jaime Winstone took to the decks. Mossy’s betrothed Jamie Hince and comedian Noel Fielding turned up to join the festivities, and Noel was spotted downing shots with actress Juliette Lewis. Since she was one of the last to leave, sounds like shots were the way to go!
Mark was cuddling up to fiancée Josephine de la Baume all night, and he joked he was “leaving all the planning to her!” Come on Mark, surely you can rustle up a few mega-star pals for the wedding band?!
Later in the week, we dropped into the BFC Sony/Next closing party in Paint at London’s Millbank Tower and somewhat drunkenly accosted Mr Hudson. Sorry dude, but when you have a party sponsored by both Tanqueray No Ten and Iceberg Vodka, we may not be totally on the ball! We can report that he was very nice and we had a very random chat about north Wales. Ahem. We also spied comedian Jack Whitehall, who joked that his first ever fashion-type party left him feeling “the most ugly I have ever felt”. The various models swarming round him later didn’t appear to think so, but there you go.
Over and out. Now for some sleep...
