Florence Welch became an impromptu DJ at the Met Ball after-party in New York last night (08.05.12) after the decks caught fire at the exclusive bash at the Standard Hotel in Manhattan.
Florence Welch took on the role of DJ at the after-party of the 'Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations' Costume Institute Gala in New York last night (08.05.12).
The 'Shake It Out' singer acted fast when the decks at the bash at the Standard Hotel in Manhattan burst into flames and quickly created a playlist on her iPod for the stars in attendance to party to.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Without Flo the party would have been a flop as it would have taken hours to rig up another set of decks.''
Earlier in the evening, Florence, 25, attended the Costume Institute Gala - which is known as the Met Ball and is considered to be The Oscars of The Fashion industry - at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art but drew criticism on the red carpet for her silky, white-tiered gown.
The 'You Da One' singer spent two hours in her hotel suite having a manicure and missed her spot on the red carpet after Anna, 62, waited to make her grand entrance and then had the carpet closed.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''She missed her slot on the red carpet and left Anna in a frenzy. The pair had a heated conversation during the champagne reception.
''Rihanna will not be invited to any of her future events any time soon.''
