We love the Aspen Art Museum (AAM). Its cool, its artsy, its accessible, its close by and its free.
We think its great that celebrity furrier Dennis Basso chooses to raise coin for AAM by throwing a decadent party and fur fashion show every year. Dennis Basso Freestyle 08 was an important see & be seen event during the wild and woolly holiday period in Aspen. All the show ponies were there.
Obviously we're not the most 'granola-y' or politically correct web site on the net, but fur, its just not our bag, baby. We worked Freestyle 08 anyway. It was a beautiful party, so we took glamour shotz of some of the beautiful people who partied with fur in Aspen to benefit AAM.
See the pix at FUR flies in ASPEN.
Inside Info: #1) At the super-VIP Basso pre party, a custom made fur valued at $200,000 caught fire on a decretive vanilla votive candle. The fire was extinguished and the coat repaired, but the model who sparked the flame will never live it down. #2) Actor Orlando Bloom and his lady friend were asked to leave the extremely private Aspen Mountain Club for excessive "canoodling". No PDA's @ AMC.
