Catherine Tennant In this month’s issue, Tatler publishes the final horoscope column of the late Catherine Tennant, who died in June aged 73. The British astrologer and writer once dubbed the ‘original hippie aristocrat’ was the daughter of Christopher Tennant, 2nd Baron Glenconner, and wife of the Queen’s godson, Sir Mark Palmer. Catherine landed her first job at Vogue after reading English at University College London, and went on to write for The Telegraph and publish several books. Remembered for her warm presence and eccentric taste, she was known to some as ‘Big Cath’, and Mick Jagger, Isabella Blow, and Nell and Toti Gifford would frequently visit her at her Gloucestershire farmhouse. Victor Demarchelier American fashion photographer Victor Demarchelier shot Natalia Vodianova in Dior couture for Tatler last March, and his work also…

anyone for venice?

CHARLIE DE BEISTEGUI gave the ball of the century in 1951 in Venice. It took place at the Palazzo Labia, which he’d bought and done up at a cost of the equivalent of about £10 million today. The diminutive Old Etonian aesthete issued invitations to his masked ball six months in advance to give guests time to get their couturiers cracking on their 18th-century costumes – luring everyone from the Aga Khan to Salvador Dalí by way of Lady Diana Cooper, Cecil Beaton and Christian Dior. Guests arrived by gondola and glamour was the watchword, typified by Daisy Fellowes and her platinum-set suite of jewels. The world was thrilled. As Jean Cocteau put it: ‘It cost about as much as a warplane, and I prefer a ball.’ Especially when it’s…

ascot antics

Royal Ascot returned, and it was a tale of two racing scenes. For those still in the Royal Borough, the Earl of Derby’s nephew Hugh Stanley threw open the doors of his restaurant, Stanley’s. A glittering crowd including David Tollemache, Charlie Barron and Eliza Manners gathered for viewing lunches. Teddy and Cazzy Derby heard from the horse’s mouth (Leo Dettori, via his father, Frankie) that racing was still on, despite the rain. And when Dettori Sr won the Commonwealth Cup, Simon Marsh and Hugh Roche’s cheers could be heard across Chelsea. MEANWHILE, IN MAYFAIR… Fitzdares, the chicest bookies in town, hosted an Ascot Ladies Day lunch. Glamorous girls gathered for horse’s neck martinis and lobster and chips. Comedian Morgana Robinson backed a winner following tips from former BBC racing correspondent Cornelius Lysaght.…

AT THIS YEAR’S CARTIER Queen’s Cup at Guards, lunch in the enclosure was a more intimate, but no less glittering, affair. Ever-charming host Laurent Feniou, the managing director of Cartier, welcomed starry guests – including two Tatler cover alumni, Emma Bath and Naomie Harris. The Scots Guards band provided some pre-match entertainment – as did Damson Idris, who marched along in time to the music, raising smiles from the glamorous crowd.
