Ridley hobnobs with Richie
KARRINYUP Shopping Centre marketing manager Claire Ridley hobnobbed with some of Hollywood’s elite as part of her whirlwind trip to the US this month.
Ms Ridley, who travelled to Los Angeles for music festival Coachella, rubbed shoulders with fashion royalty Nicole Richie, daughter of Lionel, and brunched alongside Vanderpump Rules reality star and entrepreneur Lisa Vanderpump.
Ms Ridley said it was a trip of a lifetime. James Blunt night. The scoop of the night came from original Bachelor Tim Robards and girlfriend Anna Heinrich, who announced Sophie Monk would be Australia’s next Bachelorette.
Former Perth “Bachelor” Richie Strahan put rumours of a split with his girlfriend Alex Nation to rest as they flaunted their affection on the carpet.
West Australian designers were a hit, with Nine News presenter Emmy Kubainski sparkling in Scarborough jewellery designer Keiko Uno's pieces and a gold number by designer darling Steph Audino.
Wentworth’s Tammy Mcintosh wore Jessica Bratich's accessories while Bonnie Sveen was challenged to “go green” in Morley designer Teagan Cowlishaw's label Aarli.
Sunrise’s Natalie Barr was excited to reminisce about her time at Community Newspaper Group, thanking them for giving her a chance in the industry.
“It was my old stomping ground,” she said.
“I was there nearly 30 years ago; I have fond memories of my time there.
“After one-and-a-half years of university I was given a job there and I loved my time there.”
Barr said she loved attending the Logies and it was a good chance for her and her peers to let their hair down.
