Glamorous British TV presenter Tasmin stood out from the crowd with a long chiffon affair featuring a keyhole detail that showed off her decolletage and a jewelled head dress. Also making an entrance was Holly, who was accompanied by her husband, millionaire property developer husband Nick Candy.

The Australian beauty was pretty in a peacock blue gown, featuring a sequin-encrusted neckline sourced with the help of her Twitter followers. Last week, she issued the following plea: "Fabulous Indian Girls HELP! Best place to buy AMAZING saree's in Central London??? Much appreciated! X’



It was a rare outing for the Candys since the birth of their one-year-old baby Luka. Holly took the opportunity to chat with a fellow mother Lauren Silverman, who was attending with partner Simon Cowell.

The Prince was hosting helped by the Duchess of Cornwall, who held her own in a floor-length velvet gown. Camilla had accessorised with a diamond necklace in the form of a serpent with two rubies for eyes and a matching bracelet, which are thought to have been a wedding present from her husband. The outfit was topped off by large amethyst earrings.
