Mr S was a guest at Spectator Life's birthday party at Belgraves. To mark the magazine's third anniversary, party-goers including Princess Michael of Kent, Pippa Middleton, Rachel Johnson and Mick Hucknall joined editor Olivia Cole to raise a glass in celebration.
Gosford Park actress Camilla Rutherford stuck to water at the event, revealing to Steerpike that she is expecting her fourth child. Meanwhile over at the bar, Daily Politics's Jo Coburn reminisced about meeting her fellow guest Hucknall during her university days – something which the Simply Red singer struggled to remember.
While none of the publicity shy Tories tipped for success in this issue's cover feature David Cameron’s secret A-List could summon enough bravery to attend the bash, Nicky Haslam was at least on hand to offer some political insight. When Mr S bumped into the interior designer, he was keen to share his thoughts on Ed Miliband's looks. 'He is just exceptionally beautiful,' Haslam gushed, before declining to offer a verdict on David Cameron's features.
