It's not often a viscountess is seen sprawled across the stairs of her stately home with her ballgown hitched up to show off her shapely legs.
But tiara-wearing Lady Weymouth was happy to pose for this picture at the weekend at her husband Ceawlin's family seat, Longleat House, in Wiltshire, where she celebrated her 30th birthday with a louche 'Elizabethan disco'.
Next to her on the 19th century gothic staircase lined with white candles is artist Daniel Lismore, who was once called 'the most outrageous dresser in London'.

The hand and foot of a mystery woman can be seen reclining behind them.
The eclectic guest list included American rapper Eve to Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer, who wore a cleavage-enhancing Tudor dress.
Her property tycoon beau, Niccolo Barattieri, also wore traditional Elizabethan attire.
I wonder what Lady Kitty's father, Earl Spencer, makes of her bit of ruff?
Lady Weymouth's birthday celebrations come almost two years after she married Ceawlin Thynn, 40, Viscount Weymouth, the heir to the Longleat estate, in a lavish ceremony.
The couple married in June 2013 but the wedding was marred by the fact that the Viscount's parents - the Lord and Lady Bath - did not attend.
At the time they were not on speaking terms with the couple.
It is thought that the family fallout had come about due to the removal of some ancient murals which had adorned the walls of the famous Longleat estate.

Lady Weymouth said at the time: 'It's very sad he didn't come to the wedding and that the misunderstanding has escalated to this point, but what can I do?'
The family also appeared to suffer another bone of contention when Lady Weymouth, formerly known as Emma McQuiston, spoke of racism in the aristocratic circles in which she now mingles.
She will one day become Britain's first black marchioness but previously revealed how Ceawlin's mother, Hungarian-born and French-raised Anna Gael, apparently described her son's marriage to Emma as a disruption to '400 years' of English 'bloodline'.
At around the same time as the revelation, Lady Weymouth told Tatler magazine: 'There has been some snobbishness, particularly among the much older generation.
'There's class and then there's the racial thing.'

Lady Weymouth couldn't be happier splitting her time between London and the Longleat estate in Wiltshire
However, the family are now on good terms and are enjoying spending time with the Viscount and Viscountess' first child - The Hon. John Thynn – who they welcomed last October.
And Emma couldn't be happier splitting her time between London and the Longleat estate – which is the only drive-through safari park outside of Africa and open to the public all year round.
'Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be living in a safari park! It's a bit Disney, [but] I feel so lucky and happy to be where I am, I need to pinch myself,' she once said.
