The Serpentine Summer Party

Jessica Bumpus Vogue

MATTHEW WILLIAMSON, Alice Temperley, Charlotte Dellal, Henry Holland, Lily Cole, Yasmin Le Bon and Vivienne Westwood were among those who attended last night's now legendary summer party at the Serpentine Gallery, held in Nouvel's vivid red Pavilion and sponsored by Jaguar. This year the party marked the 40th anniversary of the gallery, the 10th of the Pavilion and the 75th anniversary of Jaguar - so there was plenty to celebrate. Guests were treated to sets from DJs Seb Fontaine and Queens of Noize as well as a surprise performance on the night from Dizzee Rascal as they enjoyed food and delicious cocktails - inspired by the Pavilion - and Laurent Perrier Champagne. Proceeds from the party go directly to the gallery's internationally-acclaimed exhibitions, architecture, design, education and public programmes.
