Party Of The Week: A good Eye for a party
Friday 18 September 2009
Arriving in torrential rain, the Doo-Wop pop star VV Brown sported a spectacular Busby for the Love London party at County Hall, where she performed live on Tuesday night. Held on the South Bank in the shadow of the London Eye, which hosted the event, the party celebrated the launch of its 4D Experience, at its bespoke in-house cinema.
A bronzed Jade Jagger in thigh boots and Just Jack donned 3D glasses for a private screening of a film in which viewers are given an aerial tour of the city as fake snow falls from the ceiling and fog fills the room. The night's entertainment included DJ sets by Jagger's beau Dan Williams (with a little help from his better half), the former face of Burberry Ben Grimes in an almost totally see-through outfit and, of course, Just Jack.
A rank of black taxis and actors dressed up as police officers (brandishing umbrellas) were hired to escort VIP guests, including the heiress Jasmine Guinness and models Jade Parfitt, Olivia Inge and Tolula Adeyemi, into the party. Inside, London ruled with a red phone booth, a red post box and street lamps scattered around, while a specially made London Eye underground sign adorned the wall behind the DJ's turntables.
DJ Williams and Just Jack chatted as they watched VV Brown's lively set, including the hits "L.O.V.E." and "Crying Blood". Then it was back into the rainy night, with a goodie bag full of toy black taxis and red buses and, for those who had perhaps lost their bearings after an evening of partying, a London A-Z .
