The Harper's Bazaar & Moet party promised dancing and decadence, and a whisper of 80's revival.
In practise, this mostly translated as Salman Rushdie throwing shapes to Pam Hogg's remix of The Associate's 'Party Fears Two'. The latter was a hit the same year 'Midnight's Children' was published, so perhaps it was appropriate, reminding our illustrious guest of where it all began. Still, for the onlooker, it was perhaps a little more disconcerting than decadent, albeit in a cool and glamorous kind of way. Of which more anon.
