Well, it seems we have some-what of a new crush after attending the English National Ballet Summer Party last night. Introducing Roo Panes, not only is he the face of Burberry’s Autumn Winter 2012 campaign, he is also a beautiful, beautiful singer. Did we mention he’s incredibly good looking? Well, we should, because he is.
Roo performed to a star-studded audience which included Pam Hogg, Sean Bean, Olivia Grant and Lauren Lavern at the party which was held at the Orangery in the Kensington Gardens. Possibly one of the most sublime venues we’ve ever been too, and we ever got to check out the terrace because for once (thank you British weather) it wasn’t raining.
Those invited were encouraged to bid on a selection of art works made by those including Ronnie Wood, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Sophie Dahl and Kimberley Walsh. The pieces were based on a swan drawing which was created exclusively by Natasha Law. Guests dined on canapés by Zafferano which included quails eggs with celery salt and sesame seeds and cocktail sausages with a mash dip and don’t even get us started on the champagne that flowed freely throughout the evening. We were even treated to a performance by the ENB star dancers Daria Klimentova and Zdenek Konvalina, we were almost inspired to pirouette home ourselves, almost.
