Giorgio Armani

So I popped by the Armani boutique opening uptown last night and oh my god what a night! I arrived early to get my bearings and was told I would be given a spot on the red carpet as I was one of a handful of photographers, who would be walked through the event and given private access for a whopping ten minutes. So, I thought I'd give it a whirl.

However after 2 seconds of dealing with the pap's, I quickly forfeited my spot (a surprisingly good one) to a nice gal I'd chatted-up in line who was not so lucky. Not my cup of tea at all. So I decided to stick it out in the cold and just wait to be escorted in.

And thank God I did! I scored ALL the shots (with the exception of Alicia Keys who looked amazing) and never dreamed I'd get Victoria Beckham to stop for my lens! Liam Neeson, Milla Jovovich, Mira Sorvino, Josh Hartnett, Chace Crawford, Marcus Schenkenberg, Mario Testino, Ricky Martin, Hamish Bowles, James Penfold, and many, many more!

Go to V for pics! And click below for me standing outside freezing, bored, with my video cam waiting to go in and shoot.

That's Josh Hartnett you see back in the distance being photographed towards the end of the video.

I need someone to stash a few bags of Ritz Crackers into one of her Hermes bags. She looks too thin.

I love all the usual.

Party on!!
