New York's a go-go and everything tastes nice...
David and Iman were invited guests last night when Anna Wintour hosted a dinner for British couple Victoria and David Beckham. The event took place at SoHo House in New York, and DB had this to say about the evening and the charming young Mr Beckham:
Becks is a lovely man. I had not met him before, though we have a couple of mutual mates. He's easy going and a thoroughly good egg. Dinner was at the newly opened Soho House private club, part of the London Soho House operation. Six floors with everything from sleep-over rooms to a cinema. Cool place. Calvin was there, also Damon Dash who is inked to do a Posh album.
Becks wore an extraordinary watch that a small family could crouch on. Designed and given by Jacob Arobo (a.k.a. "Jacob the Jeweler"). Utterly big, ghetto fabulous, Bling Bling goes the bell (whistle?).
DB also sent in this useful little piece of advice from the aforementioned Jacob Arabo:
HOW TO PICK OUT JEWELRY FOR YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER
By Jacob Arabo ? a.k.a. Jacob the Jeweler
Hip-hop?s bling-enhancer of choice Rappers need to stand out. Jay-Z likes a men?s tennis bracelet, maybe a small pinkie ring. DMX buys mostly for his wife, but for himself he likes high quality ? classy watches, and maybe one earring. Rappers especially like logo pendants. Logos are tax-deductible, because they?re considered advertising. My clients don?t like me to discuss cost, but my jewelry is not cheap. It might cost as much as a car ? be it a Toyota or a Rolls-Royce, I can?t say.
For the starspotters among you, apart from David and Iman and The Beckhams, the following were also guests last night:
Calvin Klein, Damon Dash, Diane Von Furstenburg and Barry Diller, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Portman and Natalia Vodianova, Kenneth Cole, Mario Testino and Frankie Rayder, Narciso Rodriguez, Ric Pipino, Stella Tennant and Karolina Kurkova and Narciso Rodriguez.
