I was lucky enough to attend an astounding evening at Annabel’s with Belevdere, who have created a limited edition Red vodka bottle with 50% of its profits going to the Global fund to fight HIV- Aids in Africa.
The evening started chaotic for me with my beautiful dress from Aqua tearing just before the event, with a quick dash to Zara I picked up a black leather dress and was ready to go. My make up for the evening was done by a Tom Ford artist and I kept my hair straight and simple.
Arriving at the legendary Annabel’s was a fabulous experience, with the usual paparazzi camping outside. A few Belevedere cocktails later at the bar, we was joined by many famous faces including Nick Grimshaw, Michael McIntyre, Bryan Ferry and Suki Waterhouse. At 9pm we was seated to our table and I could not contain my excitement at my table being next to the legendary Sting and Boris Becker.
A choice of 3 delicious courses was offered, I opted for the ‘seared beef carpaccio, aged parmesan, Pommery mustard dressing with wild rocket for my starter. Fillet of long horn beef, shiitake, roast salsify and parsnip puree for main and Annabel’s bitter chocolate ice cream for dessert. The menu was paired with Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2011 and Terrazas selection Malbec 2010.
Another round of cocktails and a rush of celebrity’s from Adele, Jessie J, Bar Reafeli, Emma Watson to name a few was seated, Lady Gaga entered dressed in a sequined body suit and matching leg warmers by Pam Hogg’s spring 2013 collection and hair as big as her fame. Lady Gaga’s performance was breathtaking, singing acoustic and playing the piano.
Life is Fabulous.
