Victoria Beckham brought the A-List’s International Women’s Week celebrations to a close by hosting a soiree at Annabel’s on Friday. She and her guests ate from a special menu which included cacao espresso smoothies, granola parfait and lime parsley juice.

A spot of Saturday brunch for Samantha Cameron. The wife of former Prime Minister David Cameron, and founder of fashion brand Cefinn, was guest of honour at The Ned on Saturday, for its monthly Fashion For Brunch events.

As the country despairs, those in power dine at the swanky clubs of London. Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg was seen enjoying a slap-up lunch at The Reform Club on Pall Mall, Monday afternoon. He ate with Jean-Pierre Jouyet, the French Ambassador.

Also out for lunch on Monday was Tamara Ecclestone, the socialite daughter of F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone. She took her husband, Jay Rutland, out for lunch at Roka in Mayfair to toast his birthday.

But why have one celebration when you can have two? The pair were seen again later that day, when they dined at St James’ Indian Chutney Mary’s.

Much of the action in Admissions, the new play at The Trafalgar Studios, takes place in a kitchen, so it’s no wonder its stars get hungry. On Tuesday night actors Alex Kingston — best known for E.R. and Doctor Who — and Miranda sidekick Sarah Hadland took their bows and headed to Brown’s in Covent Garden for a nightcap. They were joined by audience members including Russell Tovey and Game Of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon.

South of the river, the stars were also at Fiume. The Italian restaurant in Battersea hosted the launch of the new cookbook from model and chef Isaac Carew. His girlfriend, singer Dua Lipa, was among the supporters, as well as Jasmine Hemsley, Fiume chef Francesco Mazzei, and model Katie Keight.

The Night Manager’s Tom Hiddleston and his Betrayal co-stars Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox were spotted at the Café beneath the St Martin-in-the-Fields church on Wednesday. The revival of the play by the late Harold Pinter is receiving rave reviews this week.

Jude Law, the Oscar-nominated star of Alfie and The Talented Mr Ripley, was out in north London on Wednesday evening. He was spotted having a bite at The Red Lion & Sun, a popular gastropub in Highgate.

The latest celebrity to be spotted at London’s of-the-moment, very stylish Newington Green bakery, was Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. He was spotted at Jolene on Wednesday morning sipping a coffee and doing some work.
