TALK OF THE TOWN: Stella McCartney's £1,500 shock for pals

Sounds like being a pal of Stella McCartney is only for rich people. 

She turned 50 last week and celebrated with a wild weekend-long bash for friends and celebrities at Cliveden House in Berkshire. 

The only problem? Stella didn’t foot the whole bill! 

My spy says some bleary-eyed guests were surprised to be charged for their rooms when they checked out last Sunday. 

As a night’s stay is around £1,500, and minimum booking is two nights, that’s one hefty unexpected expense to compound the after-party headache!

Look who is all grown up! It’s Harry Potter child star Genevieve Gaunt, no longer little Pansy Parkinson but a mature and elegant new fixture on the social scene. 

I met Genevieve, 30, at a party in London’s exclusive 5 Hertford Street where a mutual pal whispered that she was quietly dating pop star Mark Ronson – until he moved on to marry Meryl Streep’s daughter Grace Gummer two weeks ago.

Handy material perhaps for her podcast, The Cupid Couch, in which she compares modern-day love stories to historical tales to find out why we still haven’t quite mastered the art of relationships. 

Brainy stuff, but perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised as she read English at Cambridge... and Slytherin!
