You would hardly know from looking at Clara Paget’s Instagram that her proper title is Lady Clara Elizabeth Isis Paget. Her account is a frequently updated mixture of goofy videos, memes, pictures from late nights out, and the occasional cameo from BFF Cara Delevingne. But maybe that’s why we like her so much—Paget is by definition an “aristocrat,” but she handles her pedigree with an ease that is both approachable and irresistible. The 28-year-old feels just as at home acting in front of the camera and posing on the red carpet as she does posing for selfies with her glamorous pack of girlfriends. And through that very feed, you can’t help but get the sense that Paget is the woman to know for what’s happening on the other side of the pond. That’s why we’ve asked Lady Clara to share with us the first things that come to mind of her favorite spots across London, here.
