Saturday Scrapbook : My imaginary dinner party

Salvador Dali

I love playing games that force you to think about the who or the what, for example, if you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today? Or, what would your last ever three course meal consist of? Or, in today's example, who would you have at your ideal imaginary dinner party? Here is my list. 

First up (other than me of course - I haven't included a picture but if you really want one go here) is Salvador Dali. He is one person that I would travel across the world to meet, if he was still alive today. Visiting his house in Spain is still one of my favourite Europe experiences, and I'm already smiling, imagining the conversation he would inspire around the table. 

Colin Mathura-Jeffree

Charming, hilarious and always immaculately styled, I think Colin might just be the perfect dinner party guest. (Read my interview with him here)

Elsa Schiaparelli

Coco Chanel's nemesis, and muse to several Surrealists, I can only imagine the crowd of shutterbugs that would gather to snap Elsa for their street style blogs. I wonder which of her dresses she would wear? The Lobster? Or the Skeleton

Nicole Richie 

In particular, my inclusion of Ms Richie seems to divide people, but I love her ballsy humour and I'm sure she would have a few cracking stories to tell.

Tom Ford

Rounding off my list is Tom Ford. This man fascinates the heck out of me, not only because his taste is immaculate but because he is so darned talented and makes magic wherever he casts his hand. The only question now is what I would serve at this dinner party. I've certainly made life interesting with the guests...

How about you? Who would you have at your ideal imaginary dinner party?
