Location: Les Ambassadeurs Club, London
Joanne Black style: Azzaro black feathered dress, Damiani diamonds
The opulent Les Ambassadeurs Club was a fitting location for this dazzling display of diamonds from luxury jewellery house Damiani.
Hosted by Mira Anafina – who looked fantastic in a silk YSL dress – the evening started with Krug Champagne and the opportunity to admire the latest diamond collection on statuesque models. A fabulous Italian-style dinner followed – with truffles from Alba washed down with delicious Puligny Montrachet wine.
With a guest list that included some of the most powerful and beautiful ladies of Kazakhstan – including the President’s daughter – it wasn’t just the diamonds I was here to admire. I ended up being immersed in the world of art, however, with director Mike Figgis and his beautiful and talented girlfriend Rosey Chan on my table. Rosey entertained us all with her amazing piano skills, and Mike with his cinematic images of NYC.
Dazzled by the talent on show, I had little time to soak up the style scene. Mention has to be made, however, of Giorgio Damiani, who did a superb job flying the flag for Italian fashion.
