"Everyone indulged in shared plates of decadent food, like hangar steak with shallot rings and fingerling potatoes," says Kerr of the menu. As for the fashion? "It was all about easy-chic leather pieces, clean silhouettes, and of course, super-flattering jeans."

A peek under the table shows the bottom half of the J Brand looks. The skinny silhouette proved to be a favourite.

Kerr and Power strike a pose. What was the most stylish gift Power ever received? "Way too many to list! But maybe my gorgeous wedding ring! It's certainly the most meaningful," she reveals.
