Social Diary 2012: party of the year. Social pics

THE party of the year was held last night and as usual, the party organiser - Tiffany Farrington from Social Diary - pulled off an amazing feat: topping herself from last year's do... again. The annual shindig is for all Social Diary members, who consist of Sydney's media: journalists, PRs, advertising execs and all media folk.

The theme was 'weddings' but as usual, plenty of people thought outside the square in a big way. Tiffany always has THE best costume, and this year she came as... well I'll let her say it in her own words:

"My costume was the three sexualities who should be allowed to get married all atop a wedding cake. I've never had more fun making a serious political statement - and the fact that newly elected member for the State Seat of Sydney & Chair of Australian Marriage Equality Alex Greenwich made a special appearance on stage was truly the icing on my cake."

Alex's speech was fantastic. The dancing by Carmelo Pizzino and Alana Patience was sensational [I loved standing right next to the one and only Kerri-Anne Kennerley and admire her wedding dress, said to be her actual dress from her nuptials], and Courtney Act, Claudia Zappia, Naomi Csoke, Grace Csoke, Lachlan Cosgrove, and Marie Claire were also fabulous.

Standout costumes were: Rhonda and Kutut [yes, from those AAMI ads!], Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, KAK in her own gown, Paulini as a gorgeous bride, and Tim Burrowes from Mumbrella in a priest get-up, PR Drew Lambert as the drunk guy at a buck's night wearing a lamp shade, and Beau Kassas from Gelatissimo dressed as a wedding present, plus loads of mail-order brides. See all the madness below:
