PLAYING TO THE GALLERIES Pink was the hue du jour at the V&A summer party (in partnership with Harrods, hosted by Tristram Hunt and V&A chairman Nicholas Coleridge), from the powder-pink ice-cream carts to the rose-coloured punch. Mary Charteris (hair: pink) DJed as Princess Beatrice, Gwendoline Christie, the Duchess of Rutland and Grayson Perry partied, and the Camerons held court by the bar. Just as the night seemed over, magenta chilli tequila shots pepped it up. POLO LOCO At the Cartier Queen’s Cup in Windsor Great Park, the Queen (a picture in powder blue) surveyed the scene from the Royal Box, alongside the Duke of Edinburgh and Cartier’s Laurent Feniou. Bloody Marys kick-started proceedings, followed by lunch at flower-festooned tables – Sabine Getty ‘loved the pink flamingoes dotted around the tent’. Later, Olympia…

bought to book

The day my book - advance cheque cleared I went to Selfridges. I didn’t mean to. It just happened, in the way that helpless, head-rush shopping does. I had good intentions for the money. A publisher pays an author an advance to stop her starving in her garret as she writes the book. It is there to free her from daily concerns – the rent, the broadband bill – while she communes with her muse. The advance, modest but not miserly, would free me for a few months from the merry-go-round of freelance journalism – six pieces a week, deadlines every day – while I wrote the 80,000 words in my contract. I would eat tinned sardines on sourdough toast. I would grow my hair long and save on haircuts.…

full pelt

It’s time to saddle up for a sartorial safari: the big five animal trend has stampeded into the new season. There was Balenciaga, which went all nu-rave with multi-coloured leopard print, and Halpern, which had sightings of sequined zebra print. Shrimps dominated its category with experimental colours and shapes in faux fur, while Christopher Kane showed his inner animal with his own take on the raunchy illustrated sex manual by Alex Comfort. And the beast with one back that we all wanted to see? London-born Gareth Pugh’s avant-garde leopard-print coat, of course. STILL-LIFE: PIXELEYES. FOR STOCKISTS, SEE ADDRESS BOOK…

papa don’t preach

Autumn/Winter 2018 has seen fashion houses bowing to all things divine. At Dolce & Gabbana, models resplendent in oversized and lavishly embellished crosses and black lace veils emerged from an arch that had been designed to look like the gates of heaven. Meanwhile, Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood shepherded in habit-like veils, and Fendi played on a monochromatic, monastic palette. It goes without saying, however, that the ecclesiastical summit of the year was the Met’s Heavenly Bodies exhibition in New York. Of the many highlights of its opening night gala, a gem was the moment Madonna, dressed in a black hooded vestment and mimicking a priest receiving Holy Communion, sang her immortal lyrics: ‘When you call my name it’s like a little prayer/I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you…
