Party Beat: MIKA – The unexpected king of fashion!

19 September 2009

Roland Mouret, Mika, Christian Louboutin and Matthew Williamson

Well, well, well who knew that Mika had such a fashionable fan-base? No less than THREE fabulous designers turned out to help the singer launch his sensational new album The Boy Who Knew Too Much in a flurry of fun at Mosimann's in Knightsbridge. Roland Mouret, Matthew Williamson and a top-hatted Christian Louboutin all paid homage to the boy of the night who was dressed splendidly in tails and pink braces. (We think Mr Louboutin might have nicked his hat.) Naturally we were there too and here's who we saw doing what...

1. New girl band Mini Viva made a bee-line for Mr Louboutin and made sure he knew just how much they loved his shoes and we do believe they even managed to slip in their shoe sizes and postal address just incase he forgot. Lets hope they get a pair!
2. Mika trying to persuade Sir Ian McKellen (yes we thought that was a bit random ,too) to sing karaoke!
3. Jodie Harsh debuting her brand new London Fashion Week beehive complete with v on-trend cobalt blue streaks.
4. Sophie Ellis Bextor looking AMAZING in be-shoulder-padded vintage sweater dress from Relik in Notting Hill. She also looked super super slender following the birth of her second child Kit in February and credited losing all the baby weight to breastfeeding and Pilates!
5. New singing sensation Erik Hassle - who recently supported Mika - sipping orange juice all night as he was feeling a bit under the weather but wanted to support Mika. Bless.
6. Natalia Vodianova towering over her husband Justin Portman in a pair of killer Louboutins.
7. And finally - in our favourite story of all week - Mika himself revealed how Christian Louboutin had recently given him the late Michael Jackson's entire collection of shoes that he had designed for the O2 gigs that never happened - including a pair special golden moonwalking ones with slippy souls. 'Maybe they might give me some magic power to help me dance,' he said.
