You know it’s a good party when, by 3am, the floor is a carnival of beads, feathers and wisps of tulle. This is one of the perils of couture gowns with metre-long trains, stilettos, and enthusiastic dancing to Jessie J. Nobody seemed too bothered though. In fact, all eyes were on the show stopping jewels that bobbed and shimmered on the ears, necks and wrists of some of the most beautiful women in the world.

Whereas model Camila Morrone was resplendent in white diamond Gocce earrings and a white gold and white diamond Allegra ring. Other guests included Naomi Campbell, Chris Tucker, Hailey Baldwin and Antonio Banderas.

The evening at the magnificent Hotel du Cap Eden Roc kicked off with the purr of limousines dispatching guests as an orderly queue formed overlooking a twinkling harbour. The Philippe Starck-designed Motor Yacht A bobbed in the distance (its sister boat Sailing Yacht A was back in Cannes).

Perrier-Jouët was served alongside coconut salmon sashimi and rocket and parmesan focaccia. With dinner starting at a Mediterranean 11.30pm, it gave everyone a chance to make merry, mingle and watch the firework show at the end along with a catwalk parade showing off the pieces launched at Cannes this year at the Hotel Martinez.

As the lights twinkled over bay, dinner was served. Foie gras and roasted blue lobster gave diners requisite energy to hit the dance floor as the clock struck 1am. Pamela Anderson and her pal Paris Hilton shimmied through to the rock and palm tree-flanked outdoor setting.

A riotous performance by Jessie J thrilled, with a few crowd pleasers in there such as Purple Rain and her number one hit Price Tag. A kerfuffle behind our party heralded the arrival of Leonardo diCaprio and his entourage. Nearby Lewis Hamilton was also seen enjoying the party alongside the roped off area. A few drinks later and the Titanic actor made a swift exit around the back, and a DJ arrived, fresh from Monaco.

It was then left to revellers to jump into the fleet of hovering Mercedes E class to find the after parties, a veritable game of Catch Me If You Can.
