miss_ives: (a careful process)
Sir Ferdinand Lyle was an Egyptologist of such renown that the British Museum had turned to him for help more than once. So while tonight's affair was not quite a work party, if only due to its size and the variety of its guests, it was still something Vanessa attended because of work. Dressed in a long black coatdress with a sharp yet tasteful cleavage, her make-up was discreet and her hair was up in an artfully messy bun. Most people attending the party wore colours, and she stood out in the large room.

She smiled politely at Sir Lyle when he excused himself to go and greet another guest, and turned to find her eye caught by a figure she knew well by the buffet. She walked over to his side and looked at the display of food, leaning a little closer to him to ask, eyes glinting, "Does the buffet meet your approval, Hannibal?"
