The Week That Went Pop; What Happens after Those Catwalk Shows? Everyone Parties, of Course

Article excerpt

Where: Attica, Kingly Street, W1.

Why: To launch Donatella's new perfume, Versace Woman.

Anyway, does Donatella need a reason to party?

Dress: Versace. Or its cheaper chainstore alternative, if you're one of the Great Unwealthy.

Nibbles: Are you joking? Nibbles are fattening!

Celeb count: Very high. Kate Hudson, Kate Moss, Amanda de Cadenet, Amanda Donohoe, Billy Zane, Rachel Weisz, Donna Air, Sophie Dahl and, er, Nick Rhodes.

Dress: Chanel, Chanel, Chanel.

Nibbles: Mini bottles of Piper Heidsieck with a straw, chickeny things and sweet potato and coriander mush on a lettuce leaf. Yum.

Other guests included Isabella Blow with artist Sue Webster, Jibby Bean with Nigel "Dome Body Zone" Coates, Mel B, London's top fashion stylist Katie Grand. And Jarvis Cocker, no less, on the decks.

High point: Amanda Donohoe out on a school night (she opened in The Graduate the following evening). Just enough London, just enough LA, and in head-to-toe Chanel.

Low point: Door panic - where you've got a ticket but you suddenly feel like a nobody who's about to be sent off for an early shower. …
