Mulberry’s 40th Birthday Party

Mulberry ?’s NY.

Following the opening of their brand new flagship store at 134 Spring Street last Tuesday, they celebrated their 40th birthday party by throwing a lavish bash on the roof top of Skylight West on Monday night.

We sipped margaritas and scoffed down the canapés before taking to the multi-coloured lit dance-floor to rock out to Kasabian who played a 45 minute set.

A balloon artist made us animal shaped balloons and hats which was a fun addition to the party.

My friend from New York Daily News and I set about looking for the celebs at the party.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress quietly sat in the corner looking effortless and serene wearing a Mulberry Tille wrap dress from the Fall 2011 collection. She added a simple black blazer to her print dress and carried a Mulberry ‘Effie’ satchel from the Resort 2012 collection.

Solange Knowles: The face of Rimmel cosmetics is one of the nicest celebrities I have ever met. She’s beautiful and happy to talk to randoms like me. She wore a Mary Katrantzou Vienouas silk-georgette reversible shirt dress with Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte gold wedges whilst carrying a Mulberry ‘Fox Lock’ bag. She was impressed that I was able to name all her pieces (girl, this is what I do). I was stumped on her jewelery which she told me was by Lia Sophia.

Rose Byrne: As you know I have a mild large girl crush on Rose Byrne. The Australian actress was glowing wearing a Mulberry Resort 2012 gold pleat dress. I love the pop of colour via her aqua blue earrings. A white Mulberry mini ‘Taylor’ bag from the Resort 2012 collection and nude pumps I wasn’t too fond of completed her look.

Alexa Chung: My friend from the New York Daily News was very excited to see Alexa Chung at the party. After a little pep talk he went on his merry way to interview the British star. He returned long face saying, “I got nothing.” Whilst doing my “I told you so” dance, I observed that Alexa was wearing a really cute Mulberry ‘Polly Push Lock’ trench over a ruffle collar blouse. Black pants, Charlotte Olympia ‘Kitty’ flats and her namesake mini ‘Alexa’ from the Resort 2012 collection completed her look.

Michelle Trachtenberg: The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a navy cowl-neck top with a Mulberry ‘Annie’ skirt. She completed her look wearing her co-designed Stuart Weitzman Young Hollywood Cares Collection pumps.

Louise Roe: The British TV presenter wore a Mulberry Tillie wrap dress with a devore feathered friends print. The fashion week front row regular completed her look with a Mulberry ‘Postman’s Lock’ cross-body bag.

    Greta party and awesoem to hear Solange is a great person, she looks beautiful here. When it comes to Alexa, I don’t get her, like never, she has had a great managing team since I do not consider her looks are so awesome to make a her a “fashion girl”.

    i am very jealous!

      I could have but I didn’t know what to say to him apart from “you so pretty”

      • Alexandra September 15, 2011 at 16:05 #

        haha 😀 i think i would probably go with “will you marry me, now?”

        • Fashion Critic September 15, 2011 at 17:32 #

          😀

          Great starting point

  3. katchimo September 15, 2011 at 01:58 #

    Lol “Girl this is what I do” So true.

  4. Teleholic September 14, 2011 at 23:58 #

    You saw Alexander Skarsgard, as in you were in the same room as him, as in YOU BREATHED THE SAME AIR.

    Can I just have your life for like 5 minutes?

    • Fashion Critic September 15, 2011 at 01:00 #

      Ha ha, he is easy on the eye

    I find it strnge that not a single person went for a clutch bag, or a bag worn as a clutch. It is also slightly ironic that what I liek least in pretty much every look is the bag.
    Also, v. Jealous of you getting to see Alexander Skarsgaard and Solange sounds like a pleasure, unlike others, and her dress is amazing, I probably would have been salivating over that more than Mr. Skarsgard!

    I love Maggie Gyllenhaal and Alexa Chung’s looks!

  7. TeaAtTwo September 14, 2011 at 23:11 #

    I love Solange’s look and her hair too. I like alexa’s look too, shame’s a horrible person.

  8. JacobGH September 14, 2011 at 23:07 #

    You are not a random! Honestly, celebs should be lining up for you.

    • Fashion Critic September 15, 2011 at 02:25 #

      Lol..I feel like one in their presence

  9. justme September 14, 2011 at 22:45 #

    lol @ Alexa, I like her outfit for a change though.
    I always read nice things about both of the Knowles sisters, they seem sweet.

  10. Rebecca September 14, 2011 at 22:02 #

    Rose looks A-m-a-z-i-n-g. BDOW me thinks. Although she always looks a little bored, in reality she’s really shy. So fresh she’s a star

    • Lara September 15, 2011 at 13:00 #

      For me too, Rose is worthy of a BDOTW nomination. She was by far the best at this event in these pictures.

    Sounds like an awesome evening, so fun! I love all the gold backgrounds (not sure what all the shapes are?), and the blue/purple glowy floor under Solange, who is the best dressed of this bunch for me I do love seeing Maggie, and I think Alexa looks good, she should wear pants more often methinks.

    • Jackie September 16, 2011 at 04:29 #

      To cover up her third world legs?

      And I didn’t notice all those things until I scrolled up after reading your comment but that’s a pretty cool looking event! The gold is so fun!

  12. milex September 14, 2011 at 21:11 #

    Did you had a change to talk with Michelle Trachtenberg? I soo love her on Gossip Girl

    • Fashion Critic September 14, 2011 at 21:20 #

      unfortunately i didn’t

  13. robbie September 14, 2011 at 20:50 #

    alexa is wearing the “kitty flats” by charlotte olympia.

    the event looks so grab. could rose byrne look any more bored if she tried?

    • Fashion Critic September 14, 2011 at 20:52 #

      thank you

  14. Matt y. September 14, 2011 at 20:36 #

    Stay classy Alexa.

  15. Sabrina September 14, 2011 at 20:32 #

    Lol at your Alexa response. Nice to hear that Solange is actually a pleasant person.

  16. Ash September 14, 2011 at 20:32 #

    Solange surprisingly looks the best, for me.

    I saw your tweets from this party FC, can’t believe you saw Alex Skarsgard, what a hottie!

    • Fashion Critic September 14, 2011 at 20:45 #

      He is a hottie…but not arrogant which I respect

  17. Verena September 14, 2011 at 20:22 #

    Apart from ‘looks good’ you rarely read nice things about Alexa. Weird.
