Duffy attends "Living With Nature" exhibition.

From Celebrity Red Carpet:

When the cool kids go out, they often start with an exclusive opening night of some exhibit with cool free drinks and other cool people to talk to in attendance and such was private view of 'Living With Nature' at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London for Ophelia Lovibond, Duffy and Angela Scanlon.
Well, if you're going to be a hipster, do it properly, right?
In actual fact, these ladies probably aren't hipsters at all and are most likely as interested in art as they are free champagne and Instagram updates. They really just seem like three girls it would be fun to hang out with while the more high-brow guests spend an evening taking themselves and everything else too seriously.
