Wild Boy's Ball @ Kensington Palace

Last Friday, Kensington Palace opened late for the Wild Boy's Ball. With thoughts of Simon le Bon in my head, I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be a fun evening of history, theatrics and fashion. Each room in the Palace was themed according to one of the princesses who once lived there.

The Room of Sorrows.

In Victoria's room, a dress made of thousands of paper cranes by William Tempest was suspended from the ceiling.

A gown by Vivienne Westwood.

Outside in the gardens, guests in fancy dress and masks drank Pimm's and danced to the string quartet on the manicured lawns. It was a very memorable evening and one that showed the Palace in a new light.
