‘Quintessentially’ is the name of the private members’ club with luxury concierge service that takes care of every wowza wish from Dubai to Miami. What better party invitation to score? Monday night’s Quintessentially 10th anniversary party at the Savoy Theatre in London was the place to Be. The theme was 1920s. Starlets happily invested in buckets of red lipstick, leg wax and drama dresses to answer the call. We checked out the clothes and shoes before checking out the Tanqueray, vodka and beer to make sure we would see straight. Wise move, considering all the haute flappery and deliciously theatrical details.
OMG, cried Daisy Lowe fans. What did she do to her hair! Daisy shook fans up with a 1920s bob. We say she looked 2011 divine. She gets the full 10 points for VV, our rating code for Vampy Vintage. Namely, we adored her feathery long coat and speakeasy dress. We would have loved to see a little Diane Von Furstenberg action at the shoe level. We would have had Daisy try the Diane Von Furstenberg Zia Black Suede shoe, which can be one soft, supple wrap.
Supermodel Jaquetta Wheeler looked unhappy about coming to the party dressed in this hallway carpet-inspired dress. We kept politely quiet. Our foremost instinct is to dress her ensemble up far more with the stunning Pelle Moda Issa 2 Peep Toe Pump Graphite Suede shoe.
Model Noelle Reno takes advantage of the 1920s role call and very trendy-now black dress to score a doubleheader. Her long beads say 1920s but her curvy shape and tanned good looks say Take Me to the After-Party. Tory Burch Shoes could do just that by switching her peep-toe sandals to the Tory Burch Corbet Ankle Boot Black Glitter. Pure star quality is assured, with this special boot cut to accentuate beautiful legs. Details galore…count them in, like pure glitter-covered leather, a rear zip entry, leather piping at the collar, stacked heel.
