Sugababes album launch
GT was there last night!
Sometimes it's a hard life. Last night I attending the launch for the Sugababes' new album Catfights And Spotlights, held at the razzy Mayfair store of designer Jean Charles De Castelbajac.
Surrounded by mannequins wearing crazy nu rave couture, the razzerati drank champagne and gushed about the 'Babes new album, which everyone agrees is one of their best (see GT's review in the Dec issue, out on October 15th).
It's always funny to see medja crowd's studied cool fall apart whenever a star arrives, and it was practically Beatlemania by the time the girls showed up (everyone was waisted by that point, though – blame bubbly on an empty stomach). If the media sometimes presents them as moody, well, last night we saw another side, networking with the guests and happily signing the free Sugababes eco bag given out to all (well ok, they signed mine, but that was for my niece - honest!).
I was kind of hoping we'd also get to pick an outfit from the shop, but alas no. Shame, as I had my eye on a lovely batwing jumper thing... rad!
