Stacey Bendet's Malibu Dinner... Sharapova's Outing... Prizes for Prints...

Devon Aoki, Estella Warren, Vivica A. Fox, Denise Richards and Mena Suvari turn out for a party hosted by Alicia + Olivia founder Stacey Bendet.

PRIZES FOR PRINTS: Marie Molterer, a fashion and textile design graduate from London’s Ravensbourne College, was awarded the Texprint chairman’s prize in London on Wednesday as part of this year’s Texprint awards, which aim to promote new textile design talent from U.K. art colleges. Molterer received a prize of 750 pounds, or $1,240 at current exchange, for her colorful, Bauhaus-inspired designs. Six other entrants were also singled out for prizes: Ruth Davis, Nicola Strathearn, Hollie Maloney, Nancy Taplin and Martha Steadman were all selected for judges’ prizes, though one of the original winners, Samantha Beeston, had her prize withdrawn after it was found to resemble another illustrator’s work. Entrant Lisa Stannard has since been awarded a prize in place of Beeston. This year, creative names judging the work included Giles Deacon, Zandra Rhodes and artist Grayson Perry, who all gathered at the Rex Whistler restaurant at London’s Tate Britain last month to discuss the students’ portfolios. Deacon said he had looked for work with “a good balance of creativity with something quite commercial — which is important if you don’t just want to be an artist,” he said.
