The place was swarming with mothers desperate to spot the best new outfits for their little ones. Money was clearly no object, with a red silk Chloe dress selling for a mere snip at £1,235 (€1,454).

Children as young as 18 months were getting their nails painted at a nail bar. But don't worry, the nails were being painted with washable, non-toxic polishes. Phew, for a moment there I thought these women had all lost their minds.
