this past weekend i kept seeing everyone in 20’s inspired outfits on my instagram– where were they all going? they looked so chic!
well come to find out they were all going to the brilliant hamish bowles 5oth birthday soiree, hosted by none other than anna wintour at her house in long island. i love, love, love anna’s house and like everyone else i’m smitten with the 20’s, due a lot to the hype this summer around the great gatsby– as you can tell from these party images it’s looks like something has finally lived up to all the hype (note- hamish’s pink suit was custom made by ralph lauren, very jay gatsby).
all the voguies (that’s my new name for all of them) were there- grace coddington, the beautiful marina rust, tonne goodman, lauren santo domingo- the swan, chloe malle, and landscape designer miranda brooks– her handsome husband and two adorable daughters came along with her.
this looked like quite a party! i loved the striped tent, the chic table settings and all the wild flowers- a perfect 50th birthday celebration and also a celebration of hamish’s 21 years at vogue. a perfect mix of what i call “anna’s feminine english chic” style and hamish’s over the top extravagant glamour- what turned out to be a brilliant birthday!
