What a night! If you joined us for the red carpet launch party of Russell Marshall’s ’40′ – a Kate Moss Retrospective in partnership with Beautiful Crime we hope you had as much fun as we did! If you weren’t able to make it, we’re sorry, luckily here are the highlights from our star-studded event!
What we saw:
Kate Moss’s sultry stares from ten stunning screen prints by Russell Marshall in ten neon colour ways that reflect the printing style and influence of Marshall’s years as a journalist. This was accompanied by classic Moss quotes, such as ‘nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’ and a biography by Amy Watts.
Who was here:
A fabulous array of glamorous guests, artists, and gallery regulars, to name a few… Interior Designer and Dragon, Kelly Hoppen; Hobbit and Dracula actor Luke Evans; Olympic Gold Medallist Rebecca Adlington with celebrity chef friend Tonia Buxton of The Real Greek eatery in Marylebone; Scottish television presenter Gail Porter, celebrity interior designer Caroline Stanbury, hot, young Made in Chelsea cast member Lucy Watson; Fashion Designer and former model Melissa Odabash; Hollyoaks hunk Jeremy Edwards, make-up guru Tanya Burr, Radio1 DJ Greg Burns, model Lilah Parsons, and of course, man of the hour Russell Marshall.
What we drank:
Our favourite bar, Beat, provided delicious Moss-inspired birthday cocktails – the Birthday Breeze, Kate Berry, and Moss Ting - email us for the recipes!
What we listened to:
Moss was once quoted saying that she wanted to be a rock star, touring on a bus with her band. The music reflected this, with 90s rock, The White Stripes, Oasis, and a Primal Scream track that features Kate herself: ‘Some Velvet Morning’.
One canvas, donated from the exhibition for the annual President’s Club Charity Dinner, raised £50,000 in the charity auction! This image has now sold out in all colour ways and raised a staggering total of £74,000 for charity, as the test print was also auctioned at the Global Gift Gala in November.
Do pop into the gallery to see the exhibition, which is up until February 15th, we look forward to seeing you!
Rebecca Adlington & Lilah Parsons
