EMMA ELWICK-BATES Tatler’s Editor-at-Large, Emma Elwick-Bates, is no stranger to Condé Nast, having worked at Vogue – both in the UK and in the US – for 14 years. She has also written for The Wall Street Journal and W. For this issue of Tatler, Emma lunched with the legendary Joan Collins: ‘We met at Claridge’s. All heads did turn.’ Her overall impression of the octogenarian icon? ‘She was elegant, erudite and frankly fabulous.’ HENRY MANCE As Political Correspondent at the Financial Times, Henry Mance admits his holiday plans wouldn’t normally revolve around Donald Trump – but the chance to try out his Scottish resort for Tatler was too intriguing. ‘The burning question?’ he said. ‘Is it possible to enjoy a Trump resort without thinking of the Trump presidency? And can a journalist…

BREX-CESS Fin-de-siècle excess pervaded two great European parties, with guests dancing towards the oblivion of Brexit. Calais was jammed as socialites wondered if this was this the last opportunity for high society to get to the Continent. The highlight of the Venice Carnival was a candlelit dinner for 100 amid the baroque splendour of the Aman hotel’s Palazzo Papadopoli, followed by a Venetian version of Burning Man at the Arsenale. Meanwhile in Vienna (opposite page, right), at the showstopping annual Opera Ball at the Staatsoper, tiara-bedecked debutantes twirled to ‘The Blue Danube’. ART CLASS There was a near-miss at the private view for artist Alba Hodsoll’s new show Grace – held at the Painting Rooms in Covent Garden – when one of the child attendees thought the small pink sculptures were made of…

T he Academicians’ Room at the Royal Academy is an elegant and plushly upholstered space, with groovy prints on the walls and a sedate, coffee-cup clinking atmosphere. But for one night a year, it’s the site of a raucous art party: the London Original Print Fair’s Young Collectors’ Evening. At the inaugural event, in 2012, the room was packed, with bright young things spilling out on to the balcony as a curator of Old Master prints clambered on a sofa to toast the art buyers of the future. The clamour of debate and strains of Sister Sledge’s ‘He’s the Greatest Dancer’ travelled as far as Albany. It’s hard to picture, on a Wednesday morning at the Royal Academy, where Helen Rosslyn and Lady Alice St Clair-Erskine, the mother-and-daughter team behind…

The shoot for Barry Lyndon, as with most of Stanley Kubrick’s films, was slow. There were threats from the IRA, forcing production to move from Ireland to England. Some single shots required more than 100 takes. Yet the cast were aware that they were part of something important: ‘People realised that this was the man who had made 2001: A Space Odyssey and Dr Strangelove and A Clockwork Orange,’ says Jan Harlan, Kubrick’s brother-in-law and executive producer on many of his films. ‘He was something. He made films that remained.’ Stanley Kubrick, the man who also made The Shining, Lolita, Full Metal Jacket, Spartacus and Eyes Wide Shut was a notorious perfectionist – and perhaps the greatest filmmaker of all time. His influence extends light years beyond the appreciation of hoary…

marry for the mother-in-law

LADY CAROLYN WARREN Tall and elegant Carolyn Warren is the mother of equally tall and elegant Susanna Warren (right). This is a horse-mad family: Carolyn (daughter of the 7th Earl of Carnarvon, the Queen’s former racing adviser) and her husband (John Warren, the Queen’s current racing adviser) run the Highclere Stud. She’s always among the bestdressed at Royal Ascot, and her son, Jake, is a great friend of the Duke of Sussex – ask Carolyn about sitting next to George and Amal Clooney at the Royal Wedding. MARLA MAPLES Marrying into the Trump family comes with its pitfalls, but marriage to Tiffany Trump comes with a self-proclaimed ‘adventurer with purpose’ of a mother-in-law. Not least because Marla Maples would be an excellent wedding planner – having hosted 1,000 guests at her own nuptials…

When Mary Quant first opened Bazaar on the King’s Road in 1955, London was a drabber place. Postwar austerity was only gradually giving way to a feeling of optimism and an awareness that things could be different. Mary’s work typified that difference. I started working for Mary (now 89 years old and a Dame) in PR and marketing in 1970, by which time the King’s Road Bazaar had acquired near-mythic status as the centre of Swinging London, where the ‘Chelsea Girl’ was born. Alexander’s, the restaurant in the basement named after Mary’s husband, was the place to be. Actors such as Kay Kendall and Brigitte Bardot – and even royals – ate there before visiting the shop. Model Pattie Boyd and The Beatles’ George Harrison married in Quant designs, as did…
