It’s official. We are all totally, totally, Great Gatsby crazy. Last night we attended an amazing themed party at the Criterion in Picadilly before popping over to the fabulous Haymarket cinema for a special screening of the film itself hosted by Warner Brothers and Tiffany & Co. The film fans of you will know
A whole host of fabulous faces showed up to sink a few cocktails before the film including Daisy Lowe who looked lovely in a white Prada dress and second time parents Peaches Geldof and Thom Cohen. The couple, who recently welcomed their second son Phaedra looked every bit the part with Peaches in a glittering flapper dress by Alberta Ferretti.
The lovely Suki Waterhouse was also there in a Kate Spade New York coat and towering heels, she told us, ‘If I wear heels they have to be platforms, thinner heels just end up hurting my feet too much.’ We know what you mean Suki! By far our favourite spot of the night though was John Cleese who spent much of the evening chatting my the bar with his wife and some friends.
As well as oddles of amazing food and drink there was a beautiful Tiffany & Co photobooth where guests could have themselves a Gatsby themed photograph taken. For those not in the get up already there was a brilliant props box complete with feather boas, head pieces and faux cigarette holders. We spotted Amber Le Bon and her friends all crushing in to have their pictures taken shortly before they headed off to see the film. What a night!
What we drank: Champagne, of course
What we ate: Scallops and blue cheese and fig tartlets
