Kate Moss had a big night out in London yesterday getting a head start on ringing in Chinese New Year, which is Sunday, Feb. 10, at China Tang restaurant, which is owned by her good friend David Tang. Also out for the fun were Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, as well as their mom, Sarah Ferguson. Beatrice and Eugenie brought their respective boyfriends, David Clark and Jack Brooksbank, along for the fun, too. At the dinner, Kate caught up with the royal trio as well as TV executive Elisabeth Murdoch, daughter of Fox News mogul Rupert, and singer Tom Jones. The whole group went to an afterparty at David's house, and Kate reportedly stayed out until 6 a.m. Kate may well have been in a celebratory mood thanks to a big new job — she's on four covers of the new i-D magazine.
Victoria Beckham rocked a bright red suit to a dinner celebrating the launch of a new exhibit about the designer Valentino in London. Posh posed with Valentino himself at London's Italian Embassy. The exhibit, called Valentino: Master of Couture, opened at Somerset House today and will be open until March 3, 2013. Victoria also caught up with fellow guests Sarah Ferguson and her daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. Olivia Palermo and her boyfriend, Johannes Huebl, also dressed up for the special evening.
Victoria's in London with her kids, supposedly house hunting ahead of her family's move from LA. Her husband, David Beckham, has his last game with the LA Galaxy this weekend, and is currently in California prepping for the finale.
Kate Moss wrapped up her bikini time in Ibiza and headed back to London yesterday. She didn't need much time to acclimate to being home after the flight. She and her husband, Jamie Hince, put on their party clothes to hit the town during the tail end of London Fashion Week. Kate went to the Serpentine Gallery for the Future Contemporaries bash, where Jamie performed with his band, The Kills. Other celebs like Princess Eugenie, Liberty Ross, One Direction's Harry Styles, and Kelly Osbourne attended as well. Kelly's boyfriend, Matthew Mosshart, was there, too — his sister Alison is Jamie's bandmate in The Kills. Kelly had a great time, and tweeted a photo of herself and Kate with the caption, "I had the best night catching up with Miss Moss and watching The Kills at the Serpentine!" Kate and Jamie wrapped up their evening at an afterparty held at Loulou's members club.
Despite their late one, Kate was out this morning for the Spring 2013 Mulberry show. She had a seat in the front row near Lana Del Rey, Rebecca Hall, Alexa Chung, and Gillian Anderson. Downton Abbey was also well represented at the presentation, with Joanna Froggatt and Elizabeth McGovern on hand to see creative director Emma Hill's latest.

Prince Harry attended the London Dark Knight Rises premiere last night. He hit the red carpet solo, but once inside, he met up with a rumored new love interest, a blonde in a tight white dress named Cressida Bonas. Harry and Cressida sat next to each other inside the BFI IMAX theater and were joined by his cousin Princess Eugenie and her boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank. Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas stuck together and went to the afterparty at Freemason's Hall.
The movie's stars, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, and Marion Cotillard also attended the bash. Marion changed out of her Dior dress, and Anne from her Gucci gown, into shorter ensembles to mingle. Anne's little white dress was designed by J. Mendel. Tom, meanwhile, made the rounds with his fiancée, Charlotte Riley. Prince Harry and his crew wrapped up their movie-star mingling at a reasonable hour, then hit an after-afterparty spot. At 4 a.m. this morning, Harry headed home from the nightclub Salon just a few minutes after Cressida left in her own car.
It's graduation season, and when it comes to academic pomp and circumstance, the royals are just like us common grads. Yesterday, 22-year-old Princess Eugenie celebrated her degree from Newcastle University at the school's commencement ceremony. She donned her cap and gown with her degree in English and history of art in hand.
Last September, her sister Princess Beatrice of York graduated from Goldsmiths College in London with an honor bachelor's degree in history and the history of ideas. Beatrice, 23, was diagnosed with dyslexia when she was a little girl, but it didn't keep her from reaching her goals. The daughters of divorced parents Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, were just the latest British royals to don the grad cap and gown. Their cousins Prince William and Prince Harry have celebrated finishing their studies in addition to graduating from military academies. See some of the great graduation moments over the years of the royal Brits, including Eugenie, Beatrice, Will, Kate Middleton, and Harry.
Queen Elizabeth led the royal family from her Diamond Jubilee mass at St. Paul's Cathedral this morning back to their home base at Buckingham Palace. Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, shared a carriage ride across the city. With the queen's husband, Prince Philip, hospitalized with a bladder infection, she shared a ride with her son Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla. The royals stepped out onto the palace's balcony, where Prince William and his wife Kate shared their iconic wedding kiss on April 29, 2011. There was no lip-locking for Will and Kate this time, though. Instead, it was all about celebrating William's grandmother as her four-day celebration winds down.
Today is Queen Elizabeth II's first official event as part of her Diamond Jubilee Central Weekend. It's the 233rd Epsom Derby — this year named the Diamond Jubilee Derby in honor of the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The Epsom Derby kicked off with Ladies Day yesterday, and women sported eccentric hats and plenty of Union Jack attire. As the country's most prestigious horse race, the event draws a who's who of England — including, of course, the royal family. At today's event, Queen Elizabeth presented the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup to the winning horse, Camelot, who was trained by Aidan O'Brien and ridden by O'Brien's son, Joseph. Katherine Jenkins sang the national anthem, and members of the royal family like Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie attended the races — along with some stars including Mischa Barton — to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's big event. We've already taken a look back at the royal family's Epsom Derby presence over the years, but now we're offering a glimpse of this year's sightings. Check out the best moments from the Diamond Jubilee Derby now!
You know her sister, Princess Beatrice, as the girl who wore the hat that launched a meme at the royal wedding almost a year ago. But the younger York can rock a fanciful fascinator, too. Princess Eugenie — daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and sixth grandchild of Queen Elizabeth — turns 22 today. Unlike her parents, Eugenie has been scandal free — except for that one time she reportedly went streaking while away at boarding school. But we'll let that one slide.
Although she has the very royal title Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie of York, Eugenie found love with everyday guy Jack Brooksbank when he was working at a restaurant and bar. Eugenie is studying art history, English literature, and politics at Newcastle University and is said to want to participate in her granny's Diamond Jubilee celebrations this Spring, along with her sister Beatrice. So we should expect to see more of her and her daring hats. Take a look at Princess Eugenie over the years now!
Pippa Middleton showed some skin in a plunging red dress on Saturday night for the Boodles Boxing Ball at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel. She was joined by many other members and friends of the royal family. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie also dressed up for the occasion, as did Prince Harry's ex Chelsy Davy. Pippa and Kate's younger brother James threw on a tux much like aristocrat Henry Beckwith, who brought his apparently on-again girlfriend Geri Halliwell. The Boxing Ball is a big annual charity event in the UK, and Prince William attended three years ago with then-girlfriend Kate. It was underwritten by the jewelry company Boodles and proceeds went to benefit the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Lieutenant Dougie Dalzell Memorial Trust. Pippa and boyfriend Alex Loudon met up once inside, and were seen sharing a passionate kiss after the bash as they waited for their car at around 4:30 a.m.
