Buoyed by the home team’s success, a party spirit was in the air as tea was served, long before the infamous annual Chinawhite party began. Model Poppy Delevigne looked eye-catching in her short red dress with matching lipstick and leather jacket, proving that polo chic need not be staid, while some Hollywood glamour came in the shape of Camilla Belle and veteran actor Tommy Lee, who looked dapper in an off-white suit. It was at Chinawhite's V.I.P. lounge where things really got rowdy later in the evening. Ali Spencer-Churchill was spotted chasing a stunning blonde around the dance floor as revelers sipped champagne. TV host Cat Deeley, wearing a vintage maxi dress, posed delightedly with a bevy of hunky army men, while Geri Halliwell eventually tired of watching the action from a private bus rooftop and pulled her beau, Henry Beckwith, down to join in the dancing. The event had to stop at 11:30 p.m. because of park restrictions, but with talk of a house party in Berkshire, as well as the usual hordes decamping back to London’s clubland, those determined to continue the festivities partied on.
