Parties of the Year, 2011 (part 2)

Katia Elizarova, Daisy Lowe and Amber LeBon all walked at the fashion show during Leon Max’s Winter Dance – but where were the other places to be seen dancing this season?

September, Fashion’s Night Out

Spearheaded by Vogue, whether it was Rodeo Drive or Bond Street this was the night that a shopping experience flipped into a global fashion party. In NYC there was Bieber-fever at Dolce & Gabbana and the choice of superstars were Miss Piggy at Opening Ceremony or Sarah Jessica Parker at the Fred Leighton boutique. At Coach, in London, Gwyneth Paltrow caught up with Daisy Lowe and outside the Vogue party at royal jeweller’s Asprey, Bond Street was as busy as Carnival.

October, Allison Sarofim’s Halloween Party

Sarofim and fashion friends embraced the economic meltdown and channeled the spiraling inflation of 1930s Berlin. And the clothes too. Yes, ‘Cabaret’ had hit downtown New York. Appropriate? Always.

December, Leon Max’s Winter Dance

The gilded flocked to Claridge’s for Leon Max’s Winter Dance. The coolest girls in town – Daisy Lowe, Amber LeBon, Suki Waterhouse and Katia Elizarova – shimmied down a runway in the Leon Max Spring Collection.

December, Miami Art Basel

A week of parties in Miami and all in the name of art. Dasha’s LV sponsored barbecue on the beach front and Paris-Paris and Le Baron night club pop-ups kept Naomi Campbell, Adrien Brody, Paris Hilton and Pharrell Williams cruising all week. Almost too much.

December, Roman Abramovich’s New Year’s Eve Party

The party that everyone’s talking about. And it hasn’t even happened yet. Last year it was A-list fabulousness and all about Demi and Ashton and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (the face of the Leon Max Fall Collection). Where would Christmas celeb-haven St Barts be without this Roman holiday party?
