It's known as the summer party in the capital, where the beautiful people (namely models and actresses) hobnob with artists and entrepreneurs at the Serpentine Gallery's annual Pavilion Party at Kensington Gardens.



While actress Mischa Barton arrived looking resplendent in a cream, tiered gown with delicate ruffles, and model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne smouldered in black, Nancy Dell'Olio - who incidentally is older than Mischa and Cara combined - thought she could upstage the pretty young things in one easy manoeuvre.

Seemingly inspired by the late screen goddess Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 film Cleopatra , 51-year-old Nancy left her bra at home, accessorised her white backless minidress with lashing of silver accoutrements and topped the lot off with an Egyptian-style silver headdress.
