Everyone knows Kate Moss' taste in men tends towards musicians - and the more creative and unfettered the better. But with her current suitor, The Kills rocker Jamie Hince, otherwise occupied, the supermodel called on another creative type, photographer-to-the-stars Mario Testino, to accompany her to a glitzy fashion industry event.

In keeping with the party's 'golden age of couture' theme the 33-year-old cover girl was the picture of old school glamour in a classic gold satin gown with a three-foot-long train, and the dapper Peruvian by her side.

Singleton Camilla Al-Fayed had Elton John to thank for helping her solve the problem of a squire for the evening at London's Victoria and Albert museum. The pretty socialite, fabulous in a plunge-neck panelled frock and jewelled headdress, had borrowed the singer's partner, David Furnish.

Meanwhile, with their other halves unavailable, Claudia Schiffer and actress Thandie Newton both turned up with the favourite designers, Roland Mouret and Matthew Williamson respectively.

Prince stepped out with the two female companions currently sharing his purple reign in London. These days the artist, who split with his second wife in 2006, is never seen without his sultry backing dancers, identical twins Maya and Nandy McClean, who prefer to be known simply as Twinz.
