SOUL TO SOLE: Love magazine marked the launch of its Remix collector’s issue on Monday night at a London party hosted by Katie Grand, Katie Hillier, and Luella Bartley at George in Mayfair. Guests included Christopher Kane, Georgia May Jagger, Henry Holland, Lulu Kennedy, Otis Ferry, Tallulah Harlech, Tiphaine de Lussy and Cara Delevingne, who clearly takes her mealtimes seriously. She was heading off to dinner at the Wolseley, and was pre-ordering Dover sole on her iPhone as she went. Models Edie Campbell and Lily McMenamy were still sporting their blue eye liner from the Giles show. Campbell was wearing a white leather motocross jacket and pants straight off the catwalk.

These include a pixillated, hand-intarsia of a portrait painted of McCreery by the late Lucian Freud, one of his last pictures. “I was Bella [Freud’s] assistant for many years,” she said, referring to the fashion designer and a daughter of Lucian Freud. “I sat for him for nine months… He named [my portrait] ‘Irish Woman on a Bed.'”
