Party of the week: Tsar-struck amid the Romanovs' decadence

The Diary: The bling in ballet

Friday, 12 December 2008

Guests who were handed a goodie bag as they left the English National Ballet's Christmas party last week at the St Martin's Lane Hotel, to call in on a festive performance of 'The Sleeping Beauty' (right) might have been forgiven for thinking they were receiving the usual bag of tat including advertising brochures, cheap chocolates bearing sponsorship logos and a dodgy key-ring. But what lay inside was a treasure trove of Christmas goodies including a Swarovski crystal necklace, dipped in gold glitter, said to be worth around £200, which has apparently emerged as a hot seller on eBay over the past few days. As well as the sparkler, there were vouchers for a mini facial by Agua, a Laura Kuy potted plant and Lindor chocolates. Even the "second tier" goodie bag (for when the Swarovski ran out) included a generous stock of Elemis skin treatments. A source said the goodie bag was designed to reflect how ballet was getting "bigger and better". And blingier, evidently.
