The socialite looked pretty in pink

Considering her glittering socialite status, it comes as no surprise that Lady Marina Windsor surrounds herself with A-lister acquaintances. The older sister of Lady Amelia Windsor dressed up in a hot pink concoction to celebrate a famous friend's birthday – and she looked sublime doing so.

Emma, who has starred in series such as Everything I Know About Love and Pistol, served her usual cool-girl charm. She donned a green Barbour-style jacket layered over Stella McCartney's adored 'Kind Intarsia Jumper,' which retails at £925, and a black bucket hat - contrasting Lady Marina's ultra-feminine Barbiecore aesthetic.
