British high society and the political elite gathered in London recently to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Azerbaijan's independence.
Leyla Aliyeva, the glamorous daughter of the country's president, hosted a gala evening, which showcased an ornate and vibrant display of intricately woven carpets.
The beautiful brunette and her millionaire husband, Russian singer Emin Agalarov (pictured) joined Peter Mandelson and Giles Coren among others at the Flying Carpets to a Fairy Tale event.
The couple, who are planning to spend more time in Britain, are said to be putting the finishing touches on a high-tech modern penthouse apartment overlooking Hyde Park in Knightsbridge.
"I hope this exhibition takes visitors on a magical journey and inspires them to discover more about the beauty and soul of my country," said Leyla.
