Somerset House played host to some of the UK’s most successful women last night as photographer Nancy Honey launched her new portrait book, 100 Leading Ladies.
The business world got more than a passing nod, with Coast chief Kate Bostock, former chief of Lloyds TSB Scotland Lady Susan Rice and HSBC’s Carole Plant.
“I came here not expecting to be featured in the book at all,” Plant told The Capitalist. “It’s a tremendous privilege. I’ll be buying the book and putting it on my bedside table to taunt my husband,” she laughed.
