Monday 4th of October was a most awesome evening. Starting with cocktails in a favourite haunt of mine, Frevds… ever been? You should go!
After a long day in the office, having arrived from Paris that morning I was shattered but had managed to be granted an hour for a disco nap on the office sofa before throwing on my new vintage Parisian dress and a touch of mascara to meet the gang.
A super cool venue for drinks set in an industrial enviroment underground it is always full of new artists work on its walls and arty types in there. Pretty trendy and a very relaxed atmosphere this was often a place I would of once taken first dates as either way – should I be overly nerves or bored out of my mind at the very least I would be able to drink my way through it. There cocktails are just out of this world!
After one of these superb cocktails in frevds, which had Phil exclaiming, ‘why had I never taken me out here before!’, we were off to Soho house. We walked over from covent garden in to the heart of Soho and took a seat in the round bar for champers to toast to our very lovely, will absolutely be missed, one of a kind Director.
As when it comes down to it I don’t think many producers can honestly say that at the end of every film project they can get through to the other side and be sat round a table in soho house having dinner with their writer & director all having the most amazing evening… Well we did just that.
Felt really special to be one of the remaining five people who have been on this amazing journey. As I sat there with both my producers, Harriet Rees & Pippa Cross along with Tom Williams our lovely writer and Phil I can safely say this was not a work do more like a drink with friends.
Dinner was super, with a seriously good bottle of red to wash down some tastie Lamb!
Not a group to have ever had a quiet night, Harriet had a final card up her sleve…down the road in Piccadilly was the after party of Mr. Nice which had just premiered that evening.
A hop skip and a jump from Soho house we were entering the after party at the Criterion.
As soon as I arrived there were a fair few familiar faces with our first AD Joe Geary looking extremely dapper with his lovely Lucy on his arm in a killer green dress. As I popped outside for some fresh air to catch up, I was joined by a seriously handsome chap who just so turned out to be none other than Rhys Ifans star of Mr. Nice.
So we hung out for a bit before I started to say things like ‘your much better looking in real life’ and thought best be getting back inside before I end up looking stupid or saying something really offensive. All in all though he was a super nice guy and I can totally see what Sienna Miller saw in him for sure!
By about 1am I had about given everything I had left after my weekend in Paris for Nuit Blanche so I called a cab gave Phil a very Kitty speech on how I loved him dearly would miss him clearly and would count down the days till the premiere come February!
