The party took place in the grandioso Villa Lysis, and was themed after the F. Scott Fitzgerald masterpiece, The Great Gatsby.
In accordance with the era’s infamous dress-code, Prince Andrew’s former wife sported an all-black outfit which featured a cold shoulder cut – and paired it with a black headpiece.
