Last month, the gallery marked Kate Moss’s 40th birthday with a special exhibition of photos of the supermodel in the River Room at the world-famous Savoy hotel.

In attendance at last night’s show was 1960s sex symbol Shirley Eaton, 77, who starred as Bond girl Jill Materson in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger, famously appearing in full gold body paint.

The Mill Hill resident was proudly sporting a diamond necklace for the occasion reportedly worth £1million.
