This years bash celebrated the synergy between art and music by asking musicians to collaborate with artists and perform the results. Co-host and ELLE editor-in-chief, Lorraine Candy, welcomed a cool crowd that included Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, Pam Hogg and Bella Freud. Artist Tracey Emin got the party started giving the DJ direction, asking him to up the tempo. Meanwhile, Razorlights frontman Johnny Borrell, wearing Gucci, put in a sneaky early bid for a Keith Coventry monochrome oil painting, one of the 14 artworks up for auction.
As waitresses topped up champagne glasses and served oysters and mini chicken pies, the star-studded audience gathered for the evenings unique performances. Im looking forward to seeing my boyfriend Jamie playing, revealed Kate, who did rock n roll glamour in a beaded vintage dress and black coat.
Musician Bishi, dressed in a metallic blue catsuit, kicked things off with a surreal performance art piece with futuristic visuals by digital artist Oscar Sol. Bat For Lashes singer Natasha Khan
was up next. Dressed in a black leather pencil skirt, white vest and blonde wig, she was introduced as Pearl. This is the first time Ive sung as Pearl my alter ego. She makes me madder on stage, she told ELLE. With Andy Warhol film This Is Kiss as her backdrop, and accompanied by a string quartet, she mesmerised the crowd with her melancholy vocals. But the unique collaborations didnt stop there. Primal Screams Bobby Gill
