The Event: ITV at the movies party
The Venue: Mayfair Hotel, London
The VIPsLizzie Cundy, Nick Ede, Sam Fox, Gary Cockerill, Phil Turner, Greg Burns, Charles Ampadu,Prince Cassius and Leroy Dawkins.
Food/Drinks: The Bizzie Lizzie cocktail was our favorite drink of the night which mixed raspberry juice, pineapple juice and Ketel One vodka. And we were given different berries on cocktail sticks to accompany what we thought was a fruity theme!
The Gossip:
1) Fashion expert and TV presenter, Nick Ede, has a hot project in New York.  However, you’ll have to wait patiently for more details as such news deserves a proper announcement. Watch this space!
2) Sam Fox, who was on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here last year told us she is backing Stacey Soloman this year (and so are we!) She misses the jungle as she said she enjoyed doing the tasks. And strangely she said she also enjoyed it  when  Gino D’Acampo cooked  rat – she said it was better than the beans that were provided. Hilarious! Check out Sam below

(3) We got chatting to a guest whose identity we have to protect, who is high up in the football world. He told us Wayne Rooney is in for a big shake-up next season and will definitely be leaving Man U for a rival club. The deal’s been done and earned Wayne another small fortune, no doubt

Polo Ralph Lauren- Art Stars Auction for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Place of the Event: PHILIPS DE PURY GALLERY.
Date of Event: MONDAY, 6TH DEC. 2010

 The re-launch of Polo Ralph Lauren Jeans, saw a group of 43 European emerging contemporary artist who were commissioned by Ralph Lauren to design a (the connection being the new Polo Jeans logo, which uses the stars and stripes of the American flag).

They were commissioned to adapt a blank canvas in the form of a 3D denim star and to interpret the inspiration behind the. Polo Jeans Co identity, investigating all facets of iconic American culture that has created the essence of the brand.

 All said and done, we should not forget the main the reason for the event. And it was to create awareness and raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Being teenager is suppose to be the best fun time of once life. That is when you live you a care and stress free life. Living your life and experimenting with music, fashion and evolving yourself with the fine things in the world.

It is never a good thing to be told told you have cancer and upon that to be a teenager and told that makes you feel your life has come to a stand still

As the statistics goes, every six young person in the United Kingdom are diagnosed with cancer so it is a good thing the support Polo Ralph Lauren and Co will help give more young people a fighting chance against cancer.
