Everyone knows it is the red carpet after-parties at which the real action takes place, and the only party to be at following the BAFTAs in London on Sunday was The Weinstein Company’s at the Rosewood Hotel. And amongst the usual up-lit ice-filled troughs of Grey Goose, flitting waiters and mingling celebrities were tall cases showing off opulent jewels by Bond Street newcomer Kat Florence.
I joined designer Kat Florence, who specialises in rare bespoke-cut coloured gemstones such as Paraiba tourmalines and its latest Turkish find zultanite, for the evening as she co-hosted the party. Also in attendance were stars including Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Naomi Campbell, Viola Davis, Dev Patel, Noomi Rapace and BAFTA host Stephen Fry.
