Australia’s Next Top Model Finale

What a night it was at The Star Event Centre. Jennifer Hawkins hosted the event with judges Charlotte Dawson, Alex Perry and Didier Cohen all looking stylish in front of a crowd of screaming fans.

005Entertainment started with band Rudimental performing one of their hit songs whilst the top ten finalists of the show paraded on the stage. It was reminiscent of Bruno Mars playing at a Victoria’s Secret show.

Attendees at the show that we caught up with were Casey Burgess and Briden Starr. Also spotted on the night were personalities Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Amber Renae.

Victorian schoolgirl Melissa Juratowitch won the coveted title as Australia’s Next Top Model 2013 over Shanali Martin and “Duckie” Thot, and will appear on the cover of magazine Harper’s Bazaar.

Diana Premiere

Styleish VIPs were in abundance last night at the Blue Carpet movie Premiere of Diana. Ronan Keating and girlfriend Storm Uechtritz, Laura Dundovic, and X Factor contestants Cat Vas and Barry Southgate were among the attendees. Prior to the screening drinks were served. The consensus was that the film taught us a lot about Diana.


Jayson Brunsdon Black Label Spring/Summer 2014 Launch

Jayson Brunsdon launched his new season’s diffusion line last night at Myer Sydney. We were very excited for fashionistas as all of the Jayson Brunsdon Black Label range are under $200. Even the stylish VIP guests were excited! We caught up with some of the celebrity guests including Danielle Spencer, MTV’s Kate Peck, personal trainer, author, TV personality and fashion mogul Michelle Bridges, Miss Australia 2012 and Miss Universe 3rd Runner-up 2012 Renae Ayris, and stylist and TV personality Amber Renae. Jayson Brunsdon said he was very happy with the fabric designs for his collection.

Throughout the night, we were treated to Smirnoff vodka Le Fizz cocktails garnished with flowers, Grant Burge sparkling, and a variety of sumptuous canapés.

Stomp Opening Night

The opening night of Stomp at Theatre Royal, Sydney went off with a bang, literally – the banging of all sorts of objects. As this show originated from Australia and has travelled to London and New York, most of us knew about the use of brushes and garbage cans in the show. But there were so many other objects such as match boxes, paint tins, long sticks, massive tyre tubes, thick drumsticks, paper and plastic bags, kitchen sinks and the list goes on. Dangling from harnesses and banging away with hands and feet, we felt the Stomp cast left no stone unturned. I found the kitchen sink act one of the funniest. The show goes beyond making music and rhythms from beating on objects. There were so many comical acts and aspects to it, and the incorporation of dance routines gave us an insight into how talented the cast are. So we had lots of laughs. And the beats got me bouncing around in my seat. It was a lot of fun for the adults and kids at the show.

Photos were not permitted, but we managed a dodgy one.


Fancied Launch

Last night saw the launch of the hot new dating app Fancied to a fun crowd that included socialite Tiffany Farrington at Hugos Lounge. The Martini cocktails were sensational and the Hugos legendary pizzas were being served throughout the night. It was fun using the app while we were there and seeing who else at Hugos was on the app. The first time I hit “Check In” on the app, I found four girls at Hugos. Later in the night there were seven!

Guests could have their make-up touched-up and get manicures. Woohoo!

And many party-goers were seen dancing the night away in the club section of Hugos. Fun was had by all.

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out Launch Party and Pelicano Bar On Seven

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out was a stylish affair with lots of designers, VIP guests and onlookers witnessing the gathering of designers and personalities congregating in Hyde Park for the launch of VFNO. We got to meet Danish singer-songwriter and record producer Oh Land (Nanna Øland Fabricius) clutching a pair of drumsticks, and Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore, and catch up with David Jones Managing Director Paul Zahra, designers Camilla Frank and Carla Zampatti.

Melissa Hoyer opened proceedings, followed by speeches from Clover Moore and Edwina McCann. Then Oh Land entertained the crowd and was humble in thanking Vogue for having her perform for the event.

David Jones had a busy schedule of parades at its Elizabeth Street store. The designs and models for The Isola by Megan Gale were stunning. And Camilla’s summer range went fabulously beyond stylish caftans.

During the evening the place to hang was the Pelicano Vogue Bar On Seven at David Jones.
