The V&A’s an­nual gath­er­ing at­tracted a glam­orous cul­tural crowd in the mood for fun

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Flash! -

Rev­ellers at the V&A’s Sum­mer Party, hosted by the mu­seum chair­man Ni­cholas Co­leridge in part­ner­ship with Har­rods, were cer­tainly mak­ing the most of the

beau­ti­ful balmy night. Greeted by a line of wait­ers hold­ing ‘English gar­den’ mar­ti­nis, guests in­clud­ing Edie Camp­bell, Eliz­a­beth Hur­ley and Jack O’Con­nell made a bee­line for the lush lawn in the mu­seum’s John Made­jski Gar­den. Sa­man­tha Cameron and Rachel John­son braved the queue for the make-your-own smoked sal­mon bli­nis, while Princess Eu­ge­nie missed all the lob­ster rolls, so deep was she in con­ver­sa­tion with the artist Jonathan Yeo. As dark­ness fell, the singer Nao took to a stage that was built over the foun­tains. When she launched into her hit sin­gle ‘So Good’, guests re­sponded by kick­ing off their heels

to dance joy­fully in the shal­lows. tf
