Summer's latest trend: Masked balls

Cecil Beaton was appalled when he discovered that Truman Capote was planning one in the summer of 1966. "What is Truman trying to prove?" he wrote testily in his tell-all diary. "The foolishness of spending so much time organising the party is something for a younger man or a worthless woman to indulge in, if they have social ambitions."

"The only people I can't recognise are those with their masks off," remarked Frank Sinatra to the marvellously named Suzy Knickerbocker, The Washington Post' s gossip columnist, as they surveyed the scene at Capote's ball.
