David Bailey's Stardust Exhibition Party

David Bailey’s leading ladies assembled last night at his photography launch: the Hugo Boss Bailey Stardust exhibition. The National Portrait Gallery retrospective staged a global range of David Bailey’s subjects, some of whom partied with him at last night’s preview. Anna Bass (4 Feb’14)

Bailey’s Stardust Exhibition encompassed a series of contrasting rooms at the National Portrait Gallery to distinguish the veteran photographer’s famous and anonymous subjects.

 Guest at the bash included Bill Wyman, Kate Moss, Graham Norton, Dylan Jones, Jerry Hall, Jenson Button, Giles Deacon, Mr. Hudson, Heather Kerzner, Zandra Rhodes, Grayson Perry and Duran’s Nick Rhodes.


Jerry Hall and David Bailey at the party

A rather late Kate Moss was forgiven by the beaming Bailey judging by the smiley embraces and hugs. Looking predictably chic the just-turned-40 Moss wore a long grey coat, black skinny jeans and ankle boots. She later posed in front of an image of herself shot by Bailey.

 Jerry Hall made a public debut with her new man and soon joined friends, taking in the artwork while sipping CIROC Vodka Cocktails.

Ciroc Vodka cocktails were sipped through the night by guests who included designer Giles Deacon sporting an aqua blue jumper and white trousers and chat show host Graham Norton who arrived in a sleek checker suit. Norton laughed and joked with friend Heather Kerzner through the Rolling Stones tribute.

Dylan Jones, editor of GQ, also went for the smart suit option and caught up with some familiar faces including Net-a-Porter’s Lucy Yeomans.

Designer and model Jasmine Guinness made a statement in a classic black dress counterbalanced with a Ciroc cocktail in hand. Formula One driver Jenson Button wore a black three-piece suit regaled the crowd with news of his next race.


Grayson Perry - art manifested

From classic to outlandish Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry (above left) didn’t disappoint in his flamboyant white, blue and orange dress ensemble. He was soon engrossed with the equally flamboyant designer Zandra Rhodes.

Model/DJ Bip Ling wore a fitted black dress with nude heels and revealed he highlights of her New Year holiday in Australia. Jazz music entertained the colourful throng and more Ciroc Vodka cocktails were drunk. Guests munched monochromatic-themed canapés  which included black olive and goat’s cheese macaroon, feta and black olive on soda bread and white chocolate fizzy cake pops.
