Unless you're Naomi Campbell, that is. At this year's Serpentine summer party - the jewel in the crown of London's society calendar - the catwalk queen stole the show as she and her handsome beau Vladimir Doronin joined famous pals Camilla Al Fayed and celebrity photographer Mario Testino.
Also at the bash, hosted this year by Dasha Zhukova, the girlfriend of Chelsea football team owner Roman Abramovich, were a host of fellow beauties including Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Joely Richardson.
Naomi attended the sophisticated soiree just hours after starting her community service stint at an East London drop-in centre after assaulting a police officer at Heathrow.
And the 38-year-old supermodel seemed upbeat about her intial experience at the centre. "I had a great time today," she told the Daily Mirror. "Everyone was so lovely and welcoming."
And it seems she's made some new pals there, revealing she's asked her new workmates along to a charity fashion event she's arranging next week.
"I've invited them to my show and they've promised to come," she said. "I just want to keep my head down and get on with it."
