sass & bide: Kate Moss, Barry Humphries et al Shine for Barnardos

How does an old bitch such as my good self do it? One minute at Andrew Logan's Alternative Miss World in London, next in Australia for the Veuve Clicquot party thrown by Australian designers Heidi Middleton & Sarah-Jane Clarle of fashion label sass & bide. (More info on the company, click here)

In aid of Barnados, it was held at a deserted warehouse in Alexandria to show off their Shine collection of exhibits, with good friends of the order of Mischa Barton, Barry Humphries, Emma Hawkins (featured in March's British Vogue) portrait photographer Rankin and models Kate Moss & Daisy Lowe and band Sneaky Sound System interpreting what the word Shine meant to them.

The 10 Shine exhibits in the collection are to be auctioned off later this year in London with proceeds going to Barnardos Homes to make a difference to 10 children's lives through "the Shine Collective project".

You'll be going to an opening of a bar of soap next!

Only if in a good cause, such as myself, dearie.

You'll be raising money for good causes next, what a sell out! Surely you don't want to compromise your reputation as a viperish hedonist? See sense.

..oh, and Kate Moss,.....ummm, you should stick to "modeling"
just a critique mind you...I am not a fan of her piece..simplicity is one thing, but she has not captured or evoked a feeling, (except boredom)...my opinion..
nothing personal

Jennifer's Diary - that brings back memories. Old Betty Kenward used to indicate status of a sleb by punctuation. I believe Nicholas Coleridge upset her terribly when for a retirement prez he gave her cash from a whip round - can you imagine?
