Had a good night ladies? Penny and Shirley full of Xmas spirit!

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Katie Hind

THEY laughed, they gig­gled and they tot­tered on their high heels – clas­sic signs that it must have been a heck of a party!

Lead­ing the way with the Christ­mas cheer was Penny Lan­caster, as she emerged in the early hours yes­ter­day from a star-stud­ded bash in North Lon­don. Also at the party – and clearly hav­ing had just as much fun – were Dame Shirley Bassey, Dame Bar­bara Wind­sor and Liz Hur­ley.

Male guests at the bash, hosted by ty­coon Evgeny Lebe­dev, owner of the Lon­don Evening Stan­dard news­pa­per, in­cluded Penny’s rocker hus­band Sir Rod Ste­wart and TV pre­sen­ter Stephen Fry, out for the evening with hus­band El­liott Spencer.

Penny, wear­ing a short, tight-fit­ting sil­ver dress and high heels, roared with laugh­ter as she gin­gerly nav­i­gated a flight of stairs.

Dame Shirley pulled up the hem of her sparkling black dress and al­most seemed to scream in ter­ror as she was as­sisted down the steps.

In con­trast, Liz was prob­a­bly less wor­ried about fall­ing down than her thigh-skim­ming white dress rid­ing up.

Dame Bar­bara – who re­vealed in May that she had been di­ag­nosed with Alzheimer’s dis­ease and was mak­ing a rare pub­lic ap­pear­ance – was in typ­i­cally cheery mood as she posed for pho­to­graphs with hus­band Scott Mitchell.

Other celebrity guests in­cluded for­mer Prime Minister David Cameron, ac­tress Anna Friel, pop singer El­lie Goulding and Lon­don Mayor Sadiq Khan.
