under the tuscan stars

Fashion royalty Laudomia Castellano Pucci and Diego Della Valle mingled with actual royalty, like the Maharaja of Jaipur at the rambunctious 18th for Uberto Tarantelli on the Tiberini Estate in Tuscany. As Jasper Greig put it, ‘Ages seemed to blur into one as 70-year-old women danced with Adonises in their twenties.’ There was a pause to watch the sun rise – before the last stragglers jumped into the pool fully clothed.…

debs delight

Tatler’s New Debutantes (the activists, artists and models who starred in the September issue) were reunited for a decadent dinner at Hoi Polloi in Shoreditch. At first, everyone was hungover from Fashion Week parties the night before – Maxim Magnus stuck to cups of tea. Not to be deterred, Joe Sweeney ordered an expensive bottle of wine, while Wilson Oryema kept Negronis coming around the restaurant’s latest commission, the Dionysus Table by George Henry Longly, which boasts five types of marble. Host Harriet Verney gave a speech and had everyone in raptures with dazzling magic tricks. The debs had a ball.…

family circus

Wolverton Hall played host to 270 red-hot socials as Nicholas and Georgia Coleridge threw a joint 21st for their youngest children, Sophie and Tommy. The theme: ‘glamorous black tie with a dash of Worcestershire Saucy’, in homage to their county’s famous export. Amelia Windsor, Eliza Manners and Bea Fresson were among the chic crowd who filled up the marquees, knocking back Bloody Marys and Espresso Martinis until dawn. And when the music ended at 6.30am, a cool 150 of them were still on the dance floor.…

the last word

There aren’t many occasions where you might run into three Editors of Tatler at once, but then the Cliveden Literary Festival isn’t really like other events. Tina Brown, Catherine Ostler and Richard Dennen descended on the 17th-century Buckinghamshire stately house for the second chapter of the festival, held over a weekend of glorious late September sun. Another former Tatler Editor Geordie Greig couldn’t make it, as he was in Somerset doing up his new Strawberry Hill-style manor, and so he sent his son, Tatler.com London Editor Jasper Greig, in his place. On Friday night, the literati gathered for the Speakers’ Dinner. Lohralee Astor (returning to the old family home), Stephen Frears, Citibank’s suave David Poole, Dame Helena Morrissey and festival cofounder Simon Sebag Montefiore filled the long, candlelit tables for a…

party awards 2018

No coincidence that a decade has passed since Tatler last ran its Party Awards – a ceremony in print lauding the biggest, best, most coveted and de trop events of the social calendar. Back in 2008, the country was stricken by a financial crash as Britain felt the sobering aftershocks of the fall of Lehman Brothers. And so, amid redundancies, food banks, the falling pound, the parties were reined in or postponed for another day. Too gauche. Too extravagant. But slowly someone started turning up the music. Whether you believe it or not, after 10 years austerity is officially over, says Theresa May. Instead we are all dancing into the darkness of Brexit. While Britain teeters on the brink of crashing uncertainty, the volume increases to drown out notes of panic.…

cause célèbre

The exact moment that the uber-charity gala was reborn in London high society is hard to pinpoint, but quite possibly it came last October when Batia Ofer, wife of the London-based Israeli business magnate Idan Ofer, took to the stage at The Dorchester – her wrists cuffed in diamonds, her couture embroidered with the wishes of sick and dying children. Mrs Ofer, a patron of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the host of the evening’s Art of Wishes gala, delivered a rousing speech worthy of the Oscars. Not since the Eighties has the financial elite worked so hard to justify itself. We are returning to a time of showy benevolence best expressed by Margaret Thatcher who said: ‘No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions; he had…
