Last night London was full of stars. As a matter of fact it was full of stars wearing “stars” from Dolce & Gabbana‘s Spring Summer Collection. Celebs and fashionistas were in Net-a-Porter/Mr Porter’s London offices to celebrate the launch of Dolce & Gabbana on the site. The party saw every big name in fashion or film (that were in London) walking through the abnormally large and glamourous doors that separates the Net-a-Porter /Mr Porter magic from the rest of the world. Of course we should mention that the duo behind Dolce & Gabbana, Stefano and Domenico, were present. I’ll stop here and say I have yet to come across two men who were more charming in this world and at the same time happy to make themselves so accessible to the masses. They smiled and genuinely looked pleased as every Tom, Dick and Harry asked for a picture with them. Trust me when I say this was no easy task as it was rumoured that nearly 300 people made their way into the party last night.
Naomi Campbell, Queen Latifah, Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Lott (sporting her new short hair) Peaches and Pixie Geldof, Henry Holland, Jamie Winstone, Harold Tilman and many many more faces were mingling in the crowd as I arrived on the scene. Two bars served delicious cocktails made with Martini Gold by Dolce & Gabbana as lovely Italian canapes from Locanda Locatelli circulated around us. Liberty London Girl and I were two of the first to jump on the Vespas set up with wind machines for guests to be photographed and take home a keepsake photo, which unfortunately I forgot to pick up! Queen Latifah followed us…no pressure there! Let’s just say she didn’t need or want a partner in crime to rock that photo shoot!
Here are some pics from a memorable evening on the tiles (or Net-a-Porter carpet as it were)…
