Last night saw the world premiere of the new MINI held at the Old Sorting Office on New Oxford Street. Attended by Peaches Geldof, Henry Holland and a very pretty Laura Bailey and despite only being Monday it seems guests were very much in the mood to party.
Whilst some people threw shapes on the dance floor as early as 7.30 (a little premature for us), most of the VIPs slunk off to a secret back room where they got to check out the new MINI before anyone else. In there Poppy Delevingne – clad in an Isabel Marent for H&M jumper – hung out with Mary Charteris and Henry Holland before making her way out to the main room for the grand unveiling.
After the car was presented by a suited and booted Rick Edwards, everyone seemed pretty keen to have their picture taken alongside it – well, why not? And for all those who had worked up a massiv appitite the party boasted some amazing food, from chorizo and quail scotch eggs to beetroot and goats cheese salads. Later Ellie Goulding took to the decks to DJ and we couldn’t help but notice that she seemed to be playing a lot of her own tracks… tee hee.
What we ate: Thai Chicken Salad
What we drank: Hot cider with cloves
