British models and celebrities were out in full force last night (May 30th) to attend the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition VIP View.

As with any star-studded event, there was a cornucopia of stunning jewellery on display, including gold earrings and chunky bracelets.

One of the original supermodels Yasmin Le Bon easily outshone the younger British models who visited the art gallery with her choice of clothing and gold jewellery.

The 47-year-old showed younger models how it is done as she looked glowing with healthily-bronzed skin and curves.

Yasmin wore an eye-catching patterned purple maxi dress and accessorised with simple gold jewellery in the form of dangling earrings and cuff bracelet.

She teamed her outfit with a pony-tail and red lipstick.

Yasmin Le Bon wasn’t the only celebrity to rock earrings at the event, as TV actress Emilia Fox chose a simple pair of studs to complement her blue lace dress and nude heels.

Donna Air also wowed with her choice of jewellery and hot pink dress. She completed her frock with a pair of silver heels and gold hoop earrings.

The ever-glamorous Nancy Dell’Olio proved her fashion credentials once again in a sheer black dress matched with black heels and offset with silver drop earrings, as well as several sparkling bracelets.

Interior designer Kelly Hoppen also wore a figure-hugging gown in the form of a long, brown gown complete with waist belt.

She rocked a ladies designer watch, a pendant and dangling earrings to glam up her ensemble.

Tracey Emin represented the art world at the event, wearing a red dress with a gold necklace and white gold bracelet.

The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition VIP View gives famous faces the chance to see the art being displayed in the galleries before the public.

This year’s exhibition features tiny paintings by Turner Prize winners as well as art by amateurs and young Afghan artists.
