A dazzling dose of glamour came to London last night as the capital’s favorite fashionistas attended the V&A Golden Age of Couture Gala. Kate Moss arrived to much paparazzi fanfare in a cream vintage gown by Christian Dior, with her date for the evening, legendary photographer Mario Testino, snapping the model with his vintage camera as she glided up the pale pink carpet. Thandie Newton wore a multicolored print dress by Emilio Pucci, while Claudia Schiffer sparkled in Chanel. Other guests including Elizabeth Hurley, Eva Herzigova, Courtney Love and Prince, who all enjoyed a quintessentially English feast of lamb shank and parsnip shepherds pie and cocktails in the garden. With the temperature in the courtyard dropping (staff were even handing out pashminas to the shivering guests) and a whole day of London Fashion Week shows beginning in a matter of hours, guests left the glitzy museum and headed home, all clutching their official V&A catalogues, sure to be the coffee table tome of the season.
