Two weeks after he was found dead in his Soho flat, Sebastian Horsley was put to rest today. A very well-dressed, immaculately groomed cortege processed through Soho, stopping traffic and turning heads as Horsley probably would have liked. He must be the only person in history to upstage a one-man show about himself with this very final flamboyant appearance. The horses, black plumes, carriage and artfully draped coffin are all beautiful touches and London will remember our modern day dandy with fondness.
