The first time I met Ghislaine Maxwell was back in the mid-Eighties. She was the fabulously rich and sophisticated daughter of mighty media mogul Robert Maxwell, wafting in and out of the parties he held at his Mirror offices in London.
I was a humble executive on the launch of his newspaper The London Daily News. She flew in by private helicopter, I got the Tube. She was dripping in designer clothes and diamonds, I was draped in Topshop.
Only three years separated us, and I remember there was much to admire about her elegance, her sense of confidence and entitlement, and her extravagant bearing which was remarkable even during the hedonistic Eighties.
Mostly when I encountered Ghislaine, she was always clinging adoringly to Daddy. No one quite knew what she actually did, except look gorgeous, be funny and adorn Daddy's parties to which the rich and influential flocked like flies.
As we now know, her gift for graceful hosting and ingratiating herself with the wealthy and powerful would become her trademark and continue throughout her life.
