London's Bright Young Things, celebrated and demonised in their own time, were immortalised in the work of Cecil Beaton, Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford. And the Sirens of the silver screen, no longer silent, came to influence not just the fashions of the times but the attitudes and behaviour of the audiences.
