Having been the city's leading authority on luxury lifestyle for the past four decades, it's safe to say we've seen our fair share of glitzy parties and glamorous personalities. For our 40th anniversary year, we celebrate by sifting through our archives to see what high society looked like all those years ago—look out for some recognisable Tatler faces who you can still spot gracing our pages today.
