Naomi's Birthday, the Moulin Rouge and Mulberry's cool bash

Posted by Dean Piper On May 23rd, 2009

Apologies for only just getting a moment to fill you in on my week of partying.
Wednesday was officially party night and I started my evening at Nobu for the obligatory lychee martini (fabulous).
First stop on the trail to see celebs was the exclusive Mulberry bash at the store on New Bond Street. The evening marked the launch of a new coffee table book called Romance which saw the store team up with the British fashion Council and Chris Craymer with proceeds going to the BFC Princess of Wales Charitable Trust.
I caught up with Lisa Butcher and model agent Jonathan Phang from Britain’s Next Top Model. Lisa’s looking on fine form of late if you ask me…..and sported a chic trilby.
Also there was Prince Harry’s supposed former squeeze Astrid Harbord. She’s a pal and assures me nothing has ever been going on between the pair – and I believe her, peeps!
Next stop on the list was South Kensington’s exclusive Chloe nightclub where the dancers from the Moulin Rouge were performing a one off gig! The garden there was packed full of people and fun was had by all. The restaurant upstairs, Firehouse, has played host to many a celebrity of late though. I hear just last week Frank Lampard and James Blunt became buddies over a beer. In the past I’ve seen everyone from Joan Collins and the Duchess of York to Demi and Ashton hanging out at Firehouse. It remains one of London’s well kept secret celeb hang outs.
From Chloe I ended up swinging over to the 50th Anniversary celebrations of Island Records. The drinks flowed freely all evening and I spotted all sorts of people including The Feeling, Juliette Lewis and Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw. Later in the evening Mark Ronson hit the decks and the party was still going until near dawn!
I hung up my party clothes after that bash and got to bed. Little did I know Naomi Campbell had ventured into my favourite Chelsea club Raffles for an intimate Birthday bash! I wish there were five of me sometimes!
