Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman to host two different star-studded events in the capital

admin Heroes and Celebrities 1 Comment

As reported by our gorgeous colleagues over at Catwalk Queen, Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino and his favourite actor, Uma Thurman, will both be in London over the coming weeks to promote respective fashion orientated events.

Tarantino, already in the UK on a promotional tour for his latest movie Death Proof, is hosting a good old knees-up in the capital to celebrate the 10th anniversary of trendy Chelsea bar and restaurant The Collection, whose birthday just happens to coincide with London Fashion Week.

From the sounds of things, the event will be awash with stars, the guest list including the like of Death Proof villain and tough man Kurt Russell, stringy hag Madonna and the lovely Sienna Miller. Note to Big Brother "celebs": You ain’t getting in. However, for normal peeps like you and me, there’s a special Facebook group that will allow 100 handpicked members to join the party. Sign up now for your opportunity to dine with/stare dumbly at/grope the stars next Monday.

Meanwhile, just down the road, Uma Thurman will be hosting the Swarovski Fashion Rocks charity event alongside Pulp Fiction co-star and God of Cool Samuel L Jackson. The charity gala is taking place to raise Money for the Princes trust and will feature collections from Calvin Kline, Chanel, D&G and Armani amongst many others.

And it’s not just all about fashion. The likes of Alicia Keys, Razorlight and Lily Allen will all be making appearances to provide entertainment for guests at the high-profile soiree. That reminds me, I’d better where my invite has got too…

    This has nothing to do with the fashion aspect of this post but I just wanted to say that I saw Death Proof a few months ago and although it’s not bad, I don’t think it’s his best work. The beginning was really drawn out and it took a while until the action really started, then it was okay. It was 1/2 of a double feature called Grindhouse, by the way.
