Conservative Party leader David Cameron escorted Baroness Thatcher into a reception at London's Guildhall where he presented her with a lifetime achievement award from the investment bank Morgan Stanley.
The night celebrated "Great Britons" and the audience was studded with figures from the worlds of finance, art and music.
But everyone was outshone by the Iron Lady, resplendent in a gold suit. Fashion journalist Hilary Alexander said: "She looks fantastic. She looks like Britannia."
David Cameron seemed as star-struck as everyone else. He helped Baroness Thatcher to their table and then lavished her with praise as he presented her with the award.
