Clara Paget and Jack Guiness [getty]
Great Fun With Gucci
Following drinks at the brands Old Bond Street store it was to the Café Royal Hotel we tottered for a wonderful dinner held by Gucci in honour of their new muse Clara Paget. Clara who naturally looked amazing in Gucci herself, spent the evening chatting with Nick Grimshaw and George Barnett. As we sat down to dinner we got chatting to Mollie King who revealed her excitement about her band mate Frankie Sandford’s imminent birth, ‘We’re really busy at the moment and Frankie’s about to drop at any moment so we’re on standby, I can’t wait to go and visit her at the hospital.’ One person who already knows what it’s like to be a mother is Peaches Geldof – she dashed off after just one course (London cured smoked salmon, cream cheese, beetroot and apple) to go and look after her two young sons. Aw.
What we drank: Red Wine
What we ate: Café Royal Cotswold white chicken confit leg torte, savoy cabbage honey money sauce
Suki Waterhouse [David M Bennett]
Brit Rock With Burberry
Over in East London at the Village Underground Burberry held their #ThisIsBrit gig with the White Lies taking to the stage to entertain a strong crowd. We spotted Burberry girl Suki Waterhouse in an amazing white lace number larking about with a group of friends in the corner. She tweeted about her dress, ‘Loved my lacy number + White Lies tonight! @burberry #britrhytm next stop Singapore!!’ – Alright for some! Suki recently told us that she loves working with Burberry, she said, ‘It's a privilege to be a part of such a close, creative group of people. They're a lovely bunch who really know how to have fun!’ Pixie Geldof and her boyfriend George Barnett – who stars in the Burberry Brit Rhythm advert - also stopped by in the early evening and were seen hanging out with some mates in the smoking area.
What we drank: Gin and Tonic
Gordon Ramsey and Jonathan Ross [getty]
Getting Down With Gordon
At the opening of Gordon Ramsey’s Union Café it was canapés and cocktail galore. Gordon himself showed up fashionably late with his entire family in tow, including his wife Tana who looked a lot like her BFF Victoria Beckham – never a bad thing at all. Whilst a very toned looking Gordon spent a lot of the evening chatting to Jonathan Ross we got all excited about Mo Farah being at the party – who knew they were mates, eh? We loved the mini desserts of pastine al limone and chocolate and pistachio tart – looks like Gordon hasn’t lost his touch.
What we drank: Lanson Champagne
What we ate: Lobster sliders with basil aioli
