Dame Vivienne Westwood at RVT.....London


My good friend Markus Maverick went to see the one and only Vivienne Westwood last Thursday night as she took the mic at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (also known as RVT) in South London for a live comedy chat show called Scott Capurro's Position. Here, a few words and pictures from the evening, compliments of Markus:

"The RVT is a very famous gay pub but on that night it was quite a mixed crowd. After the show I was one of the only people she chatted to. She's so kind and very sweet, though I imagine if you got on the wrong side of her she wouldn't be..."

"She chatted on stage for 30 minutes and talked about her career, her husband, who she regards as a genius, and about Malcolm McClaren, her ex and father of one of her sons. She mentioned that when he recently passed away it was on the same day as her birthday. That drew a few sighs from the audience. She gave her thoughts on politics and the upcoming general election... she said all the political parties are as useless as each other. Everyone was captivated by this little old lady as she spouted her words of wisdom. At the end she got rousing cheers and applause."

It's a little hard to see, but he's wearing a Lucite necklace from H&M. He added the clear flower to it, making it his own—I love that.

Ice-T & Coco Celebrate Coco's Birthday...Hudson Eatery, NYC


Where Ice-T and Coco go the photogs follow and this Saturday night was no exception. The couple threw a private party for Coco's birthday at the Hudson Eatery, creating a photo-frenzy. My boyfriend and I joined them and friends for the festivities, which included dinner, champagne with sparklers, cupcakes and, of course, lots of paparazzi. Happy Birthday, Coco!

It's hard not to feel like a 12-year-old boy when I'm standing next to bodacious babe Coco...

Topshop & Nylon Magazine Anniversary Party...SoHo, NYC


Topshop and Nylon magazine celebrated the store's first year in NYC and Nylon's 11th anniversary with a private shopping party at the SoHo store on Thursday night. I joined in on the festivities with my good friend, stylist Robyn Fernandes, to enjoy the special 20% discount and complimentary cocktails (always a winning combination in my book).

Billy Nigel and Rex Leone of Laissez Faire (I promised I'd shout them out)

Love these!

 Check out his studded bow-tie. Too cute.

A miniature cupcake in hand makes for a very sweet accessory.

Normally I'd consider sunglasses at night and a large dreamcatcher-turned-necklace a fashion faux pas, but somehow he made it work.
