Across the pond on Tuesday, Stephen Webster unveiled his new men's collection for De Beers, called Burning Rocks, with a night of offbeat poetry and rock music (courtesy of Mick Jones' aptly named band Carbon/Silicon) at London's Bloomsbury Ballroom.
Webster gathered a crowd who included Tracey Emin, Kelly Hoppen, Amanda Wakeley, Katie Turner and punk poet John Cooper Clarke, who entertained guests with some colorful verse.
Earlier, London's socials had warmer climes on their mind when Rena Sindi turned the Knightsbridge restaurant Mocotó into a corner of the Caribbean, complete with palm trees, mojitos and a steel band, to launch the St. Regis Resort & Residences at Temenos Anguilla. Guests Allegra and Ashley Hicks, Phoebe Philo, Max Wigram and Robert Hersov eschewed strict British dress codes for the night. "It's all about barefoot glamour," said Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, who hosted the event with her husband Paul, the resort's developer. "You definitely don't get dinner jackets in the Caribbean."
