An Islington student met a mock Marilyn Monroe at a swanky prom for her sixth form college.

Harriet Hutton, 18, from Ripplevale Grove, Barnsbury, strolled down the red carpet Hollywood glamour themed event on May 8.

Another local student, Oliver Binks, also 18, from nearby Thornhill Square, was one of the 120 students to enjoy the do, which included cocktails, canapes, a two course meal and a disco in Fulham Palace. The bash was organised by DLD – a private college based in Marylebone and Belgravia.

Harriet said: ““I have spent my A level years at DLD and during this time I feel that I have matured and developed due to the learning opportunities provide by the college.

“The teachers are amazing with the gift to inspire young people to discover talents that they themselves may not have realised that they possessed.”
