Ellen Von Unwerth, Snow Queen Vodka

Snowy was like a cat on a hot tin roof as Pandemonia reached for the wraparound dress and Snowy's collar. This get-up was to wear to artist photographer Ellen Von Unwerth's private view.

This PV was for the Snow Queen Vodka 2013 calendar, shot by Ellen, at Gallery Different, Percy Street, W1.

Upon entry, Pandemonia and Snowy spied the capital gentleman of fashion, Aizak Buyondo. Aizak was glugging an SQ vodka cocktail and tipped Pandemonia and Snowy not to leave without the goody bag. "It's got the calendar worth £150 in it," he whispered.

Pandemonia and Snowy turned their attention to Ellen's handiwork, which was dominating all the walls, only to encounter milliner Stephen Jones.

Stephen gushed, "I've been following P&S from their conception." He went on, "Let's do the money shot," and promptly asked P to plonk Snowy on his head.

Snowy felt a vertigo attack coming on but, luckily, was rescued and brought closer to earth by a dashing pal of Gulnida Toichieva's son, tonight's host and president and owner of Snow Queen Vodka.

After thanking the Gulnida party posse, Pandemonia and Snowy shifted away, only to get paparazzi treatment from Ms E Von Unwerth.

Ms Unwerth showed Pandemonia and Snowy her pap snap.

And then followed a more formal introduction to Ms E V Unwerth by P&S's pal and international stylist Sasha Lilic. That done, Ms Von Unwerth said, "You two look great," and gave Snowy an affectionate hug. 

Next to give Snowy a squeeze was fashion stylist Sally Dixon.

Snowy continued to be fondled—this time, by dishy film director and ex male model Jean Horan. Jean took a shine to Pandemonia and Snowy and retorted, "You both should be in movies."

Taking inspiration from Ellen's work were Jeff Mehmet and burlesque star Immodesty Blaize. Pandemonia and Snowy know that whatever it will be, it will be provocative. 

From one illustrious couple to another, P&S got to meet Hofit Golan and her new squeeze. This time, Snowy got off lightly and was gently secured in P's hands. Leaving, Hofit said, "I look forward to seeing you both at  London Fashion Week'.

Turning to leave, Pandemonia and Snowy had a final chat with Suki Waterhouse, model at Next Agency. Suki let rip, "2012 was good year for me with Pepe jeans and M&S lingerie campaigns." Yep, not bad, indeed, for 19-year-old girlfriend of Kooks frontman, Luke Pritchard. P&S feel Suki has the makings for a rock star herself, so watch out, Luke! 

Finally, Pandemonia and Snowy clasped their goody bag and got in the cab on the way home, marveling at the calendar and wondering who'd use such a beautiful thing.
