NUDE FOOD PORN - SHOCK HORROR @ CRUISE BAR RE-LAUNCH..

Well I am not sure it was really that shocking or scandalous but if the idea was to get some extra media coverage it certainly sort-of did the job. What I found most interesting about said 'nude platter scandal' was not just that the models weren't nude.. doing my research for this blog post I was very surprised to discover that the so-called 'famous' 'Sex and the City' 'Sushi Samantha' scene (below) was an idea lifted from one of the greatest Surrealists of all time Méret Oppenheim who "in 1959 she created the controversial object, Cannibal Feast, for the opening of the last International Surrealist Exhibition in Paris. The sculpture included a live nude model laid out on a table and covered with food" hows that!

Storm in Le Déjeuner en fourrure aside, the Re-launch party for Cruise Bar which also incorporates Terrace Bar and Junk Lounge (no it's not an opium den but that is where the decadence happened) all with views of the Sydney Opera House, and in my books and keeping with an art theme, the best view is toward the CBD, layering Circular Quay Station and the Cahill Expressway with boats and trains and above, the cars whizzing by, then steel and glass skyscrapers and an occasional plane, it's the ultimate Futurist city view. And it certainly doesn't hurt that Circular Quay Station along with the Harbour Bridge are both Art Deco structures; perfect!

So I attended with Vivienne from vivalaViv, met up with stylist Mr Christopher Haggerty, Gordon Charles and Sandy from Platform Models, Kate Peck, Yianni(s City life) Zinonos, lots of beautiful people and many of the usual suspects. The food was great and just kept coming, the speeches were well timed, and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time. I do recommend you check out Cruise Bar for yourself. Scandalous pictures Below!!!
