Bip Ling: where to next?

Well, she’s got a fan in Pharrell…

Pharrell Williams personally follows 613 people on Twitter and has a following of 1.6 million – not a bad ratio for the old ego.

On the flipside, we imagine it must be pretty flattering to be one of the 613: a fact breathlessly confirmed to us by Bip Ling, Pharrell’s latest person of Twitter interest.

Could a career in music be next for the all-conquering blog queen? Let’s just say we wouldn’t be surprised: since setting up her own-name (and characteristically eccentric) website in 2008, everything she's touched has turned to flashing fluoro pink gold and her energy is boundless – the perfect recipe for success. Plus, she's represented by Storm Models who, it's fair to say, know a thing or two about star quality.

But we digress.

Bip was our seatmate (and, of course, the entertainment), at an intimate dinner thrown by New York jewellery house Faraone Mennella in honour of its 12th birthday last night.

The guest of honour? An equally big personality: legendary stylist Patricia Field, whose support catapulted the label's founders Roberto Faraone Mennella and Amedeo Scognamiglio to fashion fame. Vivienne Westwood, Julien Macdonald, Jaime Winstone and Josephine de la Baume also turned out for the celebrations.
