Snowdon

I was invited to lunch today at Bibendum to celebrate the publication of a big book about Tony Snowdon, A Life in View, which has been put together by his daughter, Frances, and published by Rizzoli.   It included lots of people of Tony’s generation – Terence Stamp wearing a green corduroy suit he acquired from Far from the Madding Crowd and had remade by Cerruti ten years later – and lots of Frances’s as well.   Lucy Snowdon reminded me of what it was like to sit for Snowdon:  the old blue shirt one was forced to don, the stiff leather arm chair.   I was photographed with a battered green leather suitcase on my lap.
