She's a marchioness who calls the famous Longleat estate her family home.
And Emma McQuiston, Vicountess of Weymouth, certainly looked right at home hobnobbing with VIPs at the launch of a luxury children's clothing platform in Mayfair on Thursday night.
Viscountess Weymouth - who became Britain’s first black marchioness - joined Sugababes singer Jade Ewen, Made In Chelsea's Jamie Laing and JLS stars at the Fancykids launch at the Mayfair Design Studio in London on Thursday.

Fancykids, a luxury children's clothing platform featuring brands such as Marie Chantal, Melissa Odabash and Nature's Purest, celebrated its launch with a VIP event.
Viscountess Emma gained her title in June last year, when as plain Emma, the daughter of a Nigerian oil tycoon, and an aspiring TV chef and food-blogger, she married Ceawlin Thynn, 40, whom she has known since she was four years old.

Viscountess Emma has previously spoken of racism in the British aristocratic circles in which she now mingles, telling Tatler magazine: ‘There has been some snobbishness, particularly among the much older generation.
‘There’s class and then there’s the racial thing.’
The aristocrat married the heir to the Longleat estate, and gave birth to The Hon. John Thynn in October.
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 fall out had come about due to the removal of some ancient murals which had adorned the walls of the famous Longleat estate in Wiltshire.
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?’
However the family are now on good terms and they all seem enamored with little John.
Newly blonde TOWIE star Chloe Sims was also in attendance at the event
