Tim Marlow, Tracey Emin and me
An evening spent in The Ballroom at Claridge's with guests
dripping in black and gold (dress code) for the Women of the Year
Awards - doesn't get more glam.

On my way, passed two Father Christmas' having a sneaky ciggy
around the back entrance of a department store, not very pc but
quite funny, and anyway, wouldn't Santa smoke a pipe?
I loved all the women awarded, the most inspiring, extraordinary
role models, including Tracey Emin, Helena Bonham Carter and
Camilla Batmanghelidjh, who without a doubt got my award for the
best dressed woman there. Dame Judi Dench was given a standing
ovation when she collected the Lifetime Achievement award, and
there's no one more special, she's a national treasure.
