London and the south east is paralysed by massive snowfall overnight
The edgy, alternative enclave that is east London is currently being overrun by the photography industry. Since 2001, the area has been host to the annual Photomonth festival – a smattering of events that sees hundreds of international photographers descend on galleries (as well as more unlikely venues such as bars and shops) in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible.
Kinky corsetieres Agent Provocateur hosted one of their famously louche launch parties last night - this time for their pirate-themed winter collection. Held at Camden’s indie club Koko, the catwalk show (above) and after-party entitled The Pirate Provocateur Extravaganza was attended by party girl Kimberley Stewart, society rich kid Dan Macmillan and the doyenne of fashion herself, Vivienne Westwood.
Doing her bit for the kids, Gwyneth Paltrow (above) was the guest of honour last night for the launch of Rumble in the Jumble - a fundraising designer clothes sale at the Boiler House, Brick Lane (from Nov 7-9) in aid of children's charity Kids Company, of which Paltrow is a patron. Rifling through the bargain bins was model Ben Grimes, pop star Adele, actress Tolula Adeyemi and buxom burlesque diva Immodesty Blaize.
Established Brit artist Sam Taylor-Wood (second right) unveiled her new show Yes I No at her estranged husband Jay Jopling’s White Cube gallery, Mason's Yard last night - her first exhibition there since 2004.
