That's an odd couple! TOWIE's Lauren Goodger parties at an exclusive dinner hosted by high society cad James Hewitt

They are two people from completely opposite worlds and they normally mix in very different social circles.
However, last night stars from The Only Way Is Essex continued their Marbella takeover by moving up into the upper echelons of society.
Lauren Goodger was one of the few guests invited to an exclusive dinner hosted by the distinguished James Hewitt.
New friends: James Hewitt invited Lauren Goodger to an exclusive dinner at his club The Polo House, in Marbella, Spain, last night
The former British household cavalry officer had a classy party at The Polo House, in Marbella, Spain, and wanted Goodger, 25, to be there.
The 54-year-old also invited her co-stars Cara Kilbey and Frankie Essex along, and all of the girls seemed to enjoy his hospitality.
Hewitt, who had a five year affair with the late Princess Diana, opened The Polo House in 2009 and spends most of his time at the trendy venue in the Golden Mile.
The odd couple: James appeared to have some bronze make-up on his right cheek after greeting his guests
Handy man: The former British household cavalry officer had a good time with the reality TV star
He relished the chance to party with the younger crowd and appeared to have make-up on his right cheek from Goodger's heavily bronzed face.
The newly slim reality TV star showed off her svelte figure in a tight short silver dress which she teamed with black heels.
Cara, 24, opted for a white maxi dress and wore her hair elegantly up in a bun, while Frankie chose to wear a short white skirt with a black vest.
Silver siren: Goodger had clearly slimmed down and showed off her curves in a short sequin dress
Put your hands up! Lauren hit the dance floor with her girl friends and was also joined by a pink shirt wearing Max Clifford

Ever the good host, Hewitt served his guests Veuve Clicquot champagne followed by a sumptuous dinner of buffalo mozzarella, baby lamb cutlets and lemon torte.
No doubt Lauren, who is currently on the Cambridge Weight Plan, didn't eat much of the food as she is continuing with her very-low-calorie diet.
Classy girls: Lauren and Cara both chose very different styles for the exclusive party
In safe hands: PR guru Max Clifford has helped Lauren meet the right people with his many connections
Press and publications man Max Clifford was also at the party and he was seen throwing shapes on the dance floor as the evening picked up.
Max, who now represents Lauren, stood out from the crowd in a pink shirt, but it was James who was surrounded by girls as they danced around him.
The hot spot: The Polo House is set in Marbella's Golden Mile and it attracts a high caliber of guest
