At San Lorenzo - The photographer. Catherine and David Bailey are among the chosen few at San Lorenzo for the dinner given by Conde Nast's European chairman, Jonathan Newhouse in Anna Piaggi's honor. David is said to be responsible, in part, for making London hip in the Swinging Sixties. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithful, Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy were all immortalized by his lens. It has always been implied that David was the role model for the photographer in Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow Up. Over the years he has recorded, on film, Anna's ongoing metamorphosis and it's his photograph on the cover of the V & A's invitation which shows Anna wearing a "newspaper" dress designed by JC De Castelbajac.
