ELEGANCE IN HOUSE

While colonial portraits are not exactly our thing we popped into the National Portrait Gallery last night for the opening of Elegance in exile: portrait drawings from colonial Australia. (Yes … went for the drinks and weren’t disappointed either.) Noice (sic) looking actor John Waters opened the exhibition but when it comes to post colonial elegance no one can hold a candle to Beryl Legge-Wilkinson. The fabulous Beryl, with her stylish hats, is always a scene stealer  and last night was no exception.
