I’ve just been to a sumptuous reception for the opening of Lokum Istanbul at 95 Walton Street, Chelsea.
A shop, elegantly decorated by Anouska Hempel, whom I once interviewed many years ago for my first book Women.
The distinguished guests milled around an Aladdin’s cave full of Turkish delights, bespoke stationery, scented candles and silverware.
But, my Turkish delight of the evening was the irrepressible Rosalind Milani Gallieni, whose charm and energy would invariably send able-bodied young men to utter distraction.
May she always remain a public relations icon.
