Eco-chic glam­our at the V&A; plus, a bou­tique open­ing with a supermodel host­ess

A feath­ered fan em­bel­lished with a hum­ming­bird, an 1869 dress em­broi­dered with lus­trous green bee­tle

wings; ‘Fash­ioned from Na­ture’, the V&A’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion, is full of trea­sures de­signed to make us think twice about what we wear. No won­der the show’s first night at­tracted an equally ele­gant gath­er­ing. El­lie Gould­ing, Natalie Im­bruglia and Jennifer Saun­ders came to sip honey and rhubarb gin cock­tails, while Stella Mc­Cart­ney shared a selfie with the evening’s host­ess, Arizona Muse. The model later de­liv­ered an in­spir­ing speech to the as­sem­bled guests: ‘Liv­ing sus­tain­ably can be a daunt­ing sub­ject

but this evening is full of so­lu­tions.’
