GREEN DREAMS: “Fashion crowds are the toughest to sing to,” said Jessie J, the British singer-songwriter, at the launch of Vivienne Westwood’s Palladium jewelry, “but I read every magazine you guys are in so I’m loving it up here.” Jessie, whose full name is Jessica Ellen Cornish, joined guests including Olivia Palermo, Serena Rees, Marie Helvin, Josephine de la Baume and Cory Kennedy to fete the new line, which features symbols from nature and pagan rituals and aims to raise awareness about climate change.


“The acorns are my favorite,” said Westwood of the tiny charms that were displayed among works by Fragonard, Velazquez and Rembrandt at London’s private Wallace Collection. “Fashion, food, environment – they can all work together,” said Rees, the co-founder of Agent Provocateur, Westwood’s daughter-in-law, and an owner of the bakery Cocomaya, near Marble Arch. The limited-edition “Get a Life” Palladium collection designed by Westwood will be sold exclusively at Westwood’s boutiques in London and Los Angeles starting in the spring.
