The launch of Kate Moss for Topshop, Victoria Secret’s Angels coming to London and an Elton John bash, it's been a busy month for UK Entertainment Assignments Manager, Lisa Marie Rae.
April showered us with fashion, starting with a light sprinkling of The Glamour of Italian Fashion at the V&A with sartorial greats Valentino, Tom Ford and Naomi Campbell. It then poured exuberance and inventiveness with The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at The Barbican where Dave Benett was house with all the inside and exclusive access. I particularly liked Jean Paul Gaultier’s homage to Angelina Jolie’s Oscar-awkward-right-leg-pose which almost distracted me from the Queen, who was perched on his arm. Lucky for me, Jean Paul Gaultier saw the humorous side of our composite and retweeted our cheek. From conical bras and Breton stripes, we moved to lingerie and wings with the Victoria’s Secret announcement that the fashion show and her angels are crossing the pond this year! Very exciting and we look forward to being part of the spectacle that is one of the most celebrated fashion shows.
Kate Moss topped April off with her tsunami sized global launch for her new Topshop collection on Oxford Street with a crowd of fans lining up to see her in the window of the store with Nick Grimshaw and Sir Philip Green. The guest list was super A list with Naomi Campbell, Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne among the crowd. Dave snapped Kate running to jump into his group shot of the girls – not one to miss the spot light! Cara had fun posing like Kate on the branding board and the evening went without a hitch, bar our poor photographer who was on the ledge of the office building opposite shooting aerial shots.
It was the third year for Sundance London and the Utah film festival had an impressive turn out of stars from Michael Fassbender, Ryan Reynolds to Steve Coogan and Rose McGowan. London’s O2 was transformed into a mini Park City to celebrate new films and the typical indie pics along with music performances at the pop-up stage. As partners for the festival, it was great to meet everyone at the opening event at The Langham and share the enthusiasm of Sundance and what it stands for in the industry.
We finished April at one of London’s most iconic locations, Battersea Power Station with Elton John bringing down what still remains with a thunderous set while Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans and Grace Jones partied alongside the stage. It was the Battersea Power Station Development Company inaugural annual party with a dazzling 4D light show projected onto the façade of the Power Station, chronicling its history and showcasing its future. We were working on assignment to cover all angles of the event with exclusive access to the performance and inside antics.
From April showers to May madness on the cote d’Azur, next stop the Cannes Film Festival…
