The star of television programmes including Silent Witness and Merlin revealed she is “especially excited to go and see Alice Temperley’s show” as the two are close friends.

Fox, wearing a green ‘60s style Kate Spade dress, was speaking at the Gordon’s Gin Limited Edition Ten Green Bottles launch party at The Vault, One Marylebone, last night. Gordon’s has teamed up with designer Sir Terence Conran to create a collection of limited edition bottles for the drink.

As well as Fox, celebrities at the event included Philip Glenister, Jasmine Guinness, Olivia Inge, Lisa Butcher, and Donna Air, who has just finished filming a cameo in Ridley Scott’s new film The Counselor with Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt.

She said: “I loved filming with Brad, it really was a dream come true.”

Glenister wore an emerald green coloured cravat. He said: “My wife ran around Richmond looking for Gordon’s Gin coloured clothing for me to wear tonight - I have to say I love it.”

Jade Parfitt, who has been a model since the age of 15, said she was “excited to see Christopher Kane, Giles Deacon and Henry Holland” at London Fashion Week, and that she would be “covering a lot of shows, filming for fashion titles” during the event.

Designer Guinness also spoke about London Fashion Week, but said she hadn’t decided which shows would be on her “hit list just yet”.

Mirroring the 10 different bottle designs, The Vault held 10 separate bespoke rooms, each designed around the inspiration for each ‘green bottle’.

Sir Terence said: “Gordon’s is such a heritage brand, and so iconically British that I thought it would be the perfect match.”

Guest DJ Gemma Cairney span the decks, while guests sipped on Gordon’s Elderflower Gin and Tonic cocktails and ate canapés such as black summer figs with parmesan and Parma ham and lobster nero candied lemon followed by a selection of Gordon’s Gin based chocolate lollipops.
