Saving Grace WHAT: The Launch of Grace Guru WHEN: 17 June WHERE: Sketch, 9 Conduit Street WHO: Anna Grace-Davidson, Yasmin Mills, Lisa Snowdon, Camilla Rutherford and Meg Matthews WHY: To celebrate the launch of her new online lifestyle guide, designer and entrepreneur Anna Grace-Davidson invited along a few close friends to Sketch for high tea, champagne and indulgent hand massages using luxury Elemental Herbology products – quite the treat for the pregnant Camilla Rutherford! Yoga specialist Karina Scherbina shared helpful techniques with the group, while Grace-Davidson waxed lyrical about her latest venture – an online platform that provides insight into success, lifestyle, spirituality, travel and books. Feeling inspired and rejuvenated, guests left with goody bags filled with pampering treats, such as Jo Wood Organics body mousse and Cocoface coconut water.

Racing on the Edge WHAT: The Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ Concours d'Elegance at Goodwood's Festival of Speed WHEN: 28 June WHERE: The Private Lawn, Goodwood, Chichester WHO: Arnaud Bamberger, Laurent Feniou, the Earl of March, David Gandy, Lord Linley and Yasmin le Bon WHY: Over the past 20 years, Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ has become one of the most respected Concours d’Elegance. This time round, Goodwood welcomed 185,000 spectators for the Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show, with the theme Flat-Out and Fearless – Racing on the Edge, to present the champions of the motorsport world. These were separated into seven categories, or ‘car classes’, along with an Overall Winner award; this went to the deserving sculptural Talbot Lago T150 C-SS Goutte D'Eau. After quenching their petrol thirsts, guests who visited on the Sunday, including car enthusiasts Jodie Kidd and David Gandy, retired to the Cartier tent to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, followed by afternoon tea. During the lunch, the winners were announced and prizes awarded before a rousing speech was given by the Earl of March to Arnaud Bamberger, who retires this month as executive chairman of Cartier UK after five years at the helm. He has certainly done the company proud.
