Lady Eliza’s pride at being a wallflower


AS THE youngest of the Duke of Rutland’s spirited daughters, Lady Eliza Manners is used to being the centre of attention at parties. But the 25year- old interior designer is in danger of blending into the background in this outfit.

She’s wearing a floral dress that imitates the decoration at her family’s ancestral home in Leicesters­hire, Belvoir Castle. ‘A celebratio­n of this wallpaper, which predates the castle,’ explains Lady Eliza. There have been four castles on the site, the present one having been built between 1801 and 1832.

THE glamour quotient will be lacking when next year’s Bafta film awards move from the plush Royal Albert Hall to the more utilitaria­n Royal Festival Hall. Organisers said the shift to London’s Southbank Centre will see Bafta programmin­g ‘its most ambitious night yet’, which will also be ‘ bolstered by a refreshed production and format’. Refreshed certainly describes the guests stumbling out of the after-party when the Bafta TV awards are held at the venue . . .
