Vanity Fair afterpartyVANITY FAIR AFTERPARTY
(Hotel Du Cap)
Saturday night's Vanity Fair after-party at the Hotel Du Cap was high on romance this year, thanks to the pretty rain pattering down onto the star-lit ocean that stretched beyond the party's celeb-filled Eden Rock terrace. A fun atmosphere with a lot of buzz, and a relaxed intermingling of fashion, film, and fame.
Attendees: Mick Jagger, Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Penelope Cruz, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Lilly Allen, Christian Louboutin, Natalia Vodianova, Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana, (Garavani) Valentino, Diane von Furstenberg, Harry Sloan, Chris McGurk, David Thompson, Tom Bernard, Harvey Weinstein, Tara Palmer Tompkinson.
Cuisine: Steak tartar and ham on toast. Fancy French cakes. Stuffed seafood nibbles. Lots of champagne and some strange hot, strawberry concoction.
Highlights/lowlights: The Hotel Du Cap provides an unbeatable setting for any party with its airy interiors, ocean-side terraces, and subtly-lit grounds and pool. The Vanity Fair party boasts a fabulous mix of the who's who of film and fashion, inter-mingling in an ultra-relaxed, fun atmosphere with the in-crowd never getting too crowded. The DJ provided only the best pop music leading to impromptu dancing. The only downside was the limited variety of delicious nibbles for hungry revelers.
Verdict: 4/5 martinis (Liza Foreman, Elizabeth Guider)
