For many birthdays are all about a few vinos at their local and a slightly nicer than usual piece of cake. But last night for Ben Caring’s (son of businessman Richard) 33rd birthday he celebrated in absolute style. Whiling the night away at exclusive member’s club Annabel’s in London’s Mayfair with a whole host of fabulous and famous faces. Jealous much?
The evening started early with guests being treated to a three course meal but it wasn’t long before the party really got started. With a special performance from Paolo Nutini party goers were up on their feet dancing by 11 and we even spotted one of Prince Harry’s bezza’s Guy Pelly having a little boogie on the dance floor. We’re sure his highness would approve.
Benedict Cumberbatch looked incredibly dapper in a dark suit and we spied him joining friends in the canopied outside area. Also at the bash was Leona Lewis, who looking pretty in a red vintage tea dress told us that she would consider a full time X Factor role should she be offered one. ‘I would like to take on an X Factor role but it would have to be if I wasn’t working on any music so I could really focus on it,’ she told us adding that while Gary is her favourite judge she’s also a fan of Nicole. ‘She’s really beautiful,’ said the singer.
Well, there’s no denying that - the former Pussycat Doll was also in attendance at the party throwing some shapes on the dance floor in a tight black lace dress. We wouldn’t like to take her on in a dance off, that’s for sure.
What we ate: Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb and a Dark Chocolate Soufflé
What we drank: Mark’s Club Chablis
