Inside The Animal Ball: Cara And Poppy Delevingne Schmooze With Prince Charles

10 July 2013 by

Um, we’re a little bit obsessed with these photographs of Cara Delevingne having a right old natter with HRH Prince Charles last night at The Animal Ball at Lancaster House. Attended by Nancy Dell O’lio, Jerry Hall and James Caan guests were invited to wear animal masks – hence the name.

Cara, who attended with her family, choose to go for a kinky owl ensemble wearing a mask designed by Leonora Ferguson , complete with a whip, quite what owls have to do with S&M we’re not sure but she looked pretty hot all the same. According to reports the model spent time asking Charles about whether or not he had any tattoos – she has two recent inkings of a lion and CJD, her initials on her hands.

Whilst this went on her father – also named Charles – larked about posing with a statue of some hippos mating. As you do. At the end of the night Cara, Poppy and their parents crammed into a taxi and headed home taking their masks with them. Well, you never know when you might need them really!

Elsewhere in London the party was also going strong. Here’s what else went down last night…  

Milling about with Miles…

At Somerset House Miles Aldridge celebrated the launch of his fabulous book and retrospective I Only Want You To Love Me. Joined by Tali Lennox and Rosie Fortescue guests sipped on CIROC cocktails and Piper-Heidsieck champagne whilst taking in Miles’ brilliant work.

Rocking With Ronnie…

At Castle Fine Art on Bruton Street Ronnie Wood was throwing a summer party (now the season has FINALLY arrived!) to celebrate his Raw exhibition. Whilst the Rolling Stone himself couldn’t make it due to work commitment artists Dinos and Jake Chapman popped by as did Daphne Guiness and Tolula Harlech.
