Hitting the High Notes

| September 28, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Jeweler Stephen Webster hosted a rollicking cocktail party at his Beverly Hills boutique to launch his newest collections and to celebrate British trumpeter Alison Balsom’s Hollywood Bowl debut. THE PLAYERS Victoria Hervey, Alison Sudol, Maryam Malakpour, Marjan Malakpour, Ashley Avignone THE HIGHLIGHTS Guests took a look at stylist Avignone’s creepy-chic window installation—complete with skeletal hands—before entering the boutique to see Webster’s new work with the rare gem zultanite (its color shifts from green to tan to red). Later, Balsom held the audience captive with a riveting solo on her trumpet. “I just said I’ll do a party and she said, ‘Then I’ll play for it.’ That’s how it all came together,” said Webster, explaining that he met Balsom through the artist Tracey Emin.
