Stunning Natalie Imbruglia hosted the launch party for Martini Rosato at the Kensington Roof Gardens this week and the delectable Lottie Lumsden from the Closer offices went down to chat to the stars for me.
Natalie told her: “I’m busy working on my new album at the moment, it’s going to be edgier and pretty different to my old stuff. I hope it’ll be out later this year. I’ve also been doing a bit of acting and have been working on a short film. I can’t wait for the summer I’m planning on going to every festival that the Kings of Leon play at because I love them!”
So she’s still up for bagging a rock star after splitting from Silverchair singer Daniel Johns then!
Lottie also spied Nat swapping number’s with my favourite singer of the moment Estelle – pictured here with stunning soul diva Mica Paris.
Estelle is reveling in the success of American Boy and sported train tracks on her teeth. She’s in a bid to conquer America right now – and the last thing they like is crooked teeth! Estelle told me recently her US ‘people’ tried to persuade her to get her teeth whitened too – but she refused. She obviously caved in on the crooked situation…..
Also at the launch party was supermodel Lily Cole who stayed for about two minutes, Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay, The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, Mica Paris, actors Nick Moran and Hugh Bonneville, Portia Freeman, model Ben Grimes and Sadie’s ex Jackson Scott.
The lovely Sophie Ellis Bextor lip-sync’d for the punters at the bash with a few fabulous hits and everyone left full of Martini cocktails. Hoorah!
Hilariously the PRs from the event sent me a quote from Natalie herself about Martini Rosato. It reads…..Natalie said, “Being half Italian, I’m honored to work with such a stylish and iconic brand with a strong Italian heritage behind it, and to have hosted such a successful party for Martini Rosato. This new rosé style Martini is just gorgeous and I love sharing it in a pitcher with my girlfriends – much more interesting than a bottle of wine! I also love the fact that Martini is lower in alcohol than wine meaning you look as good at the end of the night as you did at the beginning!”
Now, I don’t mean to be cynical but do you think Natalie got paid for turning up? Ummmm, yes! Ahhhh, the fickle world of celebrity.
