blenheim revisited

Once a generation there is a major Marlborough wedding and Tatler has covered them all. When the magazine was founded in 1709, the Marlboroughs had just been given Blenheim Palace as a gift for the Duke’s victories in the War of the Spanish Succession. And still fresh in the nation’s mind was the deliciously public argument, in 1708, between the Duchess of Marlborough and Queen Anne on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral, in which the Duchess told the monarch to ‘be quiet.’ (Their close, sometimes overwrought friendship is captured in the film of the moment, The Favourite, starring Rachael Weisz as the 1st Duchess, Sarah Churchill.)Many notable Marlborough men and women have followed and been duly heralded in Tatler.Eddie WreyFlora Paterson, Daisy van Straubenzee & George BlakeyThe Hon Charles…

paris by night

Fashion designer Racil Chalhoub’s birthday falls each year during Paris Fashion Week – and what better time to throw a party? Her chic friends, including Browns’ Holli Rogers and shoe maestro Edgardo Osorio, arrived at Caviar Kaspia ready to celebrate. Guests were dancing on the banquettes to DJ Laila Sarkis, who was flown in from Ras’ (as she’s known to her friends) home city, Beirut. A Valentino party was taking place next door, so Giancarlo Giammetti popped by to give the birthday girl a big kiss. Bravo!Racil Chalhoub’s birthday cakeRacil Chalhoub & Edgardo OsorioLeo Fenwick & Stephanie HortonEugenie NiarchosAfef Jnifen & Cherine Magrabi Tayeb ■…

hell’s angels

Debauchery returned to the Hellfire Caves as, more than 250 years after Sir Francis Dashwood’s days of hedonism, his descendent Tor Dashwood hosted a Hellfire banquet in its subterranean passages in support of the Global Heritage Fund. The theme was interpreted in a blaze of red capes, brocade and lashings of velvet by guests including Ben Goldsmith, Princess Alia Al-Senussi, Adam Weymouth and Harry Dalmeny as the Angel of Death. As the hostess put it, they were ‘dancing in the footsteps of the original dilettante’.Gustav Holst Stuge, Eleanor Wellesley, Jonathan Jackson & Kempton WhiteSasha SassoonVictoria Dashwood & Tarka RussellAlexander ColeridgeDavid GiguariThe entrance to Hellfire Caves, West WycombeEleanor WellesleyEdward & Tish East ■…

new year, new u

Nancy Mitford has a lot to answer for. It was she who, in 1955, set out in print what had never been written before – the unspoken rules for being ‘U’ or upper-class, and ‘non-U’. Her article, published in the CIA-funded magazine, Encounter, provoked an outcry, not least from her old friend Evelyn Waugh. In an open letter denouncing her for lobbing this grenade into British society, he wrote: ‘There are subjects too intimate for print. Surely class is one?’Reading Mitford’s essay now, you realise how quickly everything changes. Back then, her observations on class were based on language – whether you ‘took a bath’ (non-U) or ‘had one’s bath’ (U). Whether you said ‘chimneypiece’ (U) or ‘mantelpiece’ (non-U). Today, having a bathtub at all is a sign of leisure,…

the life of the party

OH WHAT A NIGHTPrincess Michael of Kent at a fashion show at Annabel’s in 1980. Opposite, Lady Annabel at home in RichmondAnnabel’s was – is – London’s grandest and most glamorous nightclub, a place beloved of royals, rock stars, Hollywood A-listers and the peerage alike. Its doors were first opened in 1963 by the dashing Mark Birley, who named the club after his wife, Lady Annabel, younger daughter of the 8th Marquess of Londonderry and a renowned society beauty: slender with foxy hair, cut-glass cheekbones and almond eyes. Its strict dress code of ‘proper shoes and ties’ belied the often raucous antics within. It was famed, fêted and the epitome of the place to be.In 2007, though, Birley sold Annabel’s to Richard Caring for £95 million; last year, Caring uprooted…
