Christian Audigier's new Champagne launch was scuppered last night after cases of the fashion guru's wine were stolen from London's Movida nightclub just hours before they were to be unveiled.

All the cases of Audigier's Grand Cru and Rose Champagne were stolen by a group of men from outside the fashionable club, in full view of security cameras. Movida confirmed the cases were stolen and that the police were involved.

Meanwhile, guests at the launch party, which included Australian singer Peter Andre, comic Alan Carr and glamour model Bianca Gascoigne were served still wines from Audigier's Vin de Pays d'Oc range. All of his wines, including the Champagnes, sport his distinctive tattoo graphic.

Audigier, who also attended the launch last night, is widely regarded as being the driving force behind the growth of popular fashion brands including Von Dutch and Kookai.
