With the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Ball, one of the most talked about functions of the year, almost upon us, just one question remains: who will wear the tiara?

The event, to be held at the Conrad Ballroom on Monday night, is turning out to be a glittering It-girl gathering. Assembled under the same chandeliers will be such 'royal' personages as Baby Spice (aka Emma Bunton), Anson Chan Fang On-sang, British socialite Tamara Beckwith, CNN's Lorraine Hahn, Sophia Harilela and Teresa Cheung Siu-wai.

And if that isn't enough glamour for one night, Blaze Productions has slotted in a fashion showing of Paul Smith's autumn/winter collection plus a raffle and an auction of original art and jewellery. The event's MC will be the mouth from the south himself, barrister Kevin Egan.

SAR wants to know which of the It-girls will remain seated when Egan says 'all stand for the Queen'.
