The party of last week was the fabulous Jaguar XJ launch at the Saatchi Gallery. I mingled my heart away with the likes of Elle Macpherson, model Poppy Delevingne, top designer Matthew Williamson and David Hasselhoff.
Hilariously Matthew managed to get caught up in a tangle with Elle after the pair embraced. He told me: “Oh Lord, I just managed to get Elle’s bugle beads from her dress tangled on my collar. She bugle beaded me.” Elle, Matthew, Jefferson Hack and the nights host Jay Leno all walked away with brand new versions of the car but Matthew decided to go for the sport. He told me: “I don’t want one of those huge things. So I’ve gone for the Jaguar XK. It’s more me – I couldn’t drive those massive Jags.”
Elsewhere at the bash singer Sophie Ellis Bextor told me she’s hard at it putting the finishing touches on her new album, Kirstie Allsopp revealed she’d love to do another series of Kirstie’s Homemade Home if the offer comes up and The Hoff played the diva disappearing upstairs to “escape fans” midway through the night.
