Jaime Winstone

Fabulous new art website Art Wednesday hosted a star-studded event at Maddox this week on the eve of the Frieze Art Fair.
London’s art and fashion world intertwined at the bash and guests included Made In Dagenham’s Jaime Winstone, Drag DJ supremo Jodie Harsh, Idris Elba of The Wire and my favourite All Saint Mel Blatt.
Snow Queen vodka provided the drinkies too. Yum. And talking of yummy, Max Bergius – editor & founder of Art Wednesday told me: “Tonight has been a great opportunity to establish Art Wednesday as a force to be reckoned with in the art world, providing the perfect antidote to the fuddy-duddy world of Frieze week.
“It’s been thrilling to see so many friends, followers, readers and fans of the website all wanting to come and have a great time, if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here. Tonight symbolised everything that Art Wednesday is – creative, influential, smart, no-nonsense and fun.”
Other guests included Amber Le Bon, Jesse Wood and creative super-star Kate Moross.
