Ridley hob­nobs with Richie

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.

Perth girl Jessica Marais won best ac­tress for The Wrong Girl and Love Child.

The gold Lo­gie was won by Sa­muel John­son.
