Looong time since my last post, so sorry I have been really busy with various projects, can't say much about them atm, but know that a few cherries are gonna be ripe for the picking pretty soon :)
Went to the MTV/Calvin Klein party last night at Village Underground in Shoreditch, I'm sure my queue hopping ticked a fair few people off (especially as I had to actually push past them all to do so as it was a barriered entrance) well, what can I say, I don't do queues ;-)
Walked in and thought- am I in the wrong party? all I could hear was some god awful AOR sounding girl warbling (turns out this was Alexis Jordan- never heard of her before, never want to hear her again, thanks)
Met up with the gang- Jonny Woo, John Sizzle, Ma Butcher, Miss Marie Louise Von Hasselberg (super duper stylist and all round diva) my 'sister' Letitia (I'm very lucky to have two best female friends, Letitia & Rachel- The Sisterhood) we had done our usual trick of turning up in the same outfit (this time it was a turban clash) Alex Noble & Josh Caffe, Miss Ilona International- fresh off the plane from Miami, Amandine, Leo Belicha, Nadia & Morris, Holestar, I could go on...there were loads of us out last night.
Ran into Amechi Ihenacho (editor of Flux magazine) who I havn't seen for ages- he's just opened a new shop and a cocktail bar called Maneros on Kingsland Road with a 5am licence! I'll be checking that out for sure, I can imagine it will be the epitome of elegant debauchery as Amechi is one of the most stylish men on the planet, a truly dapper chap.
Also spotted- Katie Grand and Bip Ling (how is this girl signed to a model agency? pretty yes, but she is tiny! I towered over her and I'm only 5'2")
Jameela Jamil: she is really lovely, seems very down to earth and has a nice vibe about her. I saw her outside the JCDC show last season and she told me I had a 'fucking cool dress' on
Free bar all night, which was fab, and they had a good selection too (I hate when its just free beer)
They had a booth thing where you could record your own Calvin Klein commercial, but by the time Tish and I thought we would have a go they had run into technical difficulties....
The crowd as a mixed bag- lots of Shoreditch faces mixed with competition winners. It was rammed packed, the toilet queue for the ladies was massive, so I tried to pass myself off as a transsexual to gain entry to the mens (I could see friends in there, so it would have been safe) despite back up from a couple of Batty Bass regulars, the bouncer was having none of it...
There was a DJ set by Pixie Geldof & Alice Dellal, which wasn't great....they turned the bass down halfway through (think they just didn't know whet they were doing really, should stick to Alexa Chungs method of just playing mix CD's her brother Dom does for her) ironic they probably got paid about 15k for it....I liked the Britney Spears track, but Eminem? no thanks...
There was also live performances from Katy B and Wretch 32 (who were good) and the music picked up after that, but we all decided to go to The Joiners (change of scene) and I'm so glad we did as the music was AMAZING in there
We even managed to score a free cab ride, as the driver had no change for a 20 (result)
It was disco heaven, we barely left the dancefloor, Josh Scrutton was pulling some hip snaking moves, ran into Dan Williams, but I missed his set as my feet were killing me so I left about 1am hopped in a cab with Morris and tried not to wake up my sleeping boyfriend when I got home (probably unsuccessfully)
