HELLO! Editor-in-Chief Rosie Nixon and her friend and fashion designer Tabitha Webb hosted an exclusive screening of Natalie Portman's acclaimed new film JACKIE at the luxurious Bvlgari Hotel on Thursday night. The pair were joined by a host of VIP guests for the glamorous evening, including TV presenters Kate Silverton, Gina Hardy and Lucy Verasamy, First Dates star Cici Coleman and HELLO! blogger Zoe Onions, as well as our lucky competition winner Polly Burn.
The private event proved a hit as guests sipped on champagne and nibbled on canapés before heading into the screening room, where they were greeted with goodie bags before settling down to watch the highly-anticipated drama. "It was a thrill to host the second HELLO! Film Club with such a major movie as JACKIE," Rosie said after the screening. "Natalie Portman's portrayal of the former First Lady is hauntingly brilliant, it's no wonder she causing such a stir this awards season. I would highly recommend it to all our readers."
Meanwhile, Tabitha took to Twitter to celebrate the evening's success, writing: "Awesome night hosting our film club with @Rosie_Nixon and @hellomag – gorge to have @GinaHarding and @LucyWeather there with us! X"
