blasblog from frieze: supermodel, super birthday celebration


Nicky Haslam wasn’t the only one celebrating a birthday in London last night. British model Jacquetta Wheeler rang in another year, too, but instead of asking friends to hightail it to the southern outskirts of the city (you might as well have been in Surrey, Nicky!), Wheeler invited pals like Natalia Vodianova and Camilla Al Fayed to Momo’s off Regent Street for a spirited night of dancing. Turns out this isn’t just a birthday for Wheeler, who’s keeping the celebration going this weekend at the pile of bricks her parents own in the Kentish countryside. On Tuesday, the catwalker will head to Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, to do some Obama stumping in the swing state. “My little sister Charlotte has been there for six weeks already, and says they need all the help they can get,” Wheeler said in a moment when she wasn’t on the dance floor. “If Obama wins—no, when Obama wins and changes the world for the better, I’ll be able to say I had a part in that.”
