The Juicy Couture launch attracts Duran Duran, Lily Cole and Tamara Beckwith

Posted by Dean Piper On October 14th, 2009

It was a fun night last night at the fabulous Juicy Couture bash on Bruton Street in Mayfair. I took along X factor choreographer Brian Friedman for an evening jam packed with champers, canapes and, er, desserts!

Juicy Couture, founded by Duran Duran band member John Taylor’s wife Gela Nash-Taylor, is a brand you will all know very soon. If you don’t know it already…..

Do any of you remember the early Juicy Couture trousers worn by the All Saints in the late nineties? Or maybe the velour pants that Jennifer Lopez wore that said ‘Juicy’ on the back?!

Well, Juicy Couture have taken things up a notch or two in my book and the current range is up market, classy and slick. Hell, they even have a store in Mayfair now people!

Celebs galore trotted into the bash. I spotted Simon, Yasmin and Amber Le Bon testing out the desserts on offer, Lily Cole debuting a gothic red colour hair and Jade Jagger wearing sparkly red strappy heels at the event. As well as bikini designer supremo Melissa Odabash, Duran Duran star Nick Rhodes, girl about town Tamara Beckwith, Henry Conway and my favourite model of the moment Ben Grimes.

I did find myself staring pretty obviously at Yasmin Le Bon at one point. How that woman manages to keep her skin so flawless I’ll never know! And FYI – the face moves!

Pop by the Juicy Couture store on Bruton Street in London now.
