Campaign Diary: Glam? Yes. Raunchy? Yes. Free booze? Yes. Tara there? Of course

The Diary gets invited to a huge number of parties but we have decided to become choosy about which ones we go to. So, while you were all quaffing free beer at Neisbitt’s do on Thursday, we were supping champers with none other than Our Tara in Eaton Square.

The Diary gets invited to a huge number of parties but we have

decided to become choosy about which ones we go to. So, while you were

all quaffing free beer at Neisbitt’s do on Thursday, we were supping

champers with none other than Our Tara in Eaton Square.



Yes, we know she goes to every party in the world and that she was at

Cosmo’s on Monday (see left), but she passed up Nicole Kidman’s premiere

party to go to Duckworth Finn’s bash at the Mansion and that’s enough

for us. The invite said ’over the top glamour’ so the Diary put on its

fake Westwood basque and dancing boots and went to see how many celebs

would actually turn up.



The party, to launch a press campaign for Lounge Lizard snacks, was

organised by Mark Armstrong who, as we all know, organises Madonna’s

parties when she’s in town and dahlings, is he good at it. Armstrong

acquired the Mansion in Eaton Square, normally only hired out for

weddings, and turned it into a scene from Diamonds Are Forever for the

night.



We were all keyed up to star-spot, though the only obvious sighting was

of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. Wearing the same old black dress she wears for

her Sunday Times column, she only stayed for about half an hour. Not to

be nasty or anything, but we were all probably a bit too exciting for

her. Nevertheless, she completely forgot to mention the party in her

column on Sunday.



As the night went on, we managed to spot Hugh Cornwell from the

Stranglers, various MTV presenters and one member of a now-defunct pop

group called Fresh. The Diary danced its socks off, drank more Sea

Breeze than it knew possible and air-kissed its way into the early

hours. Agencies are now cordially invited to see who can trounce this

for a party.
