Last Thursday I was invited by Cosmopolitan as a VIP guest to their #FashFest fashion show. As you can probably imagine I was so ecstatic to be invited to the event itself, but I could not believe that I had been chosen as a VIP, I felt extremely honored! The evening took place at the luxurious Battersea Evolution venue near Battersea Park.
When I arrived at the venue I was treated to the complete VIP treatment. Above you can see a photograph of myself and the lovely Louise from Style Me Curvy being photographed on the red carpet! As you entered the VIP area they had a delicious Cosmo cocktail waiting for us, well it would not be a Cosmopolitan event with a cheeky Cosmo would it? All the celebrities were out in force, such as the gorgeous Millie Mackintosh, Alexandra Burke and our host for the evening Laura Whitmore.
During the evening I was able to meet some other wonderful bloggers, theses included Laura from Tiny Twisst, Naomi from Two Shoes, One Pair, Grace from Dorothy and Olive, Mel from Media Marmalade and Louise from Style Me Curvy. It was great to be able to chat about fashion trends with other fellow lovers of fashion and beauty.
Before the fashion show began us lucky bloggers were treated to a special sneak peak backstage by the lovely Gem Royston. Being a newbie to the blogging / fashion world I had never actually been backstage before a fashion show, it was great to see all the beautiful models getting beautified. To be honest I could not quite believe how calm and organized everything was, I thought it would be more like a scene from America’s Next Top Model with people frantically running around left, right and center!
Afterwards, we were all seated together on a table that was only a few feet away from the catwalk. We were each provided with a copy of a Cosmopolitan magazine before the show started, which I have been making my way through at the moment. Below are snaps of my best-loved outfits from the catwalk show, which included all our favourite high street brands – Primark, River Island, Miss Selfridges, Boohoo.com, ASOS.
I was actually blown away by the catwalk show, not only did it showcase my favourite high street brands but it was so beautifully choreographed, everything just flowed perfectly. At the end of the evening we were all given a goody bag with lots of different goodies and treats; I hope to show you some of the goodies when I have finished making my way through it!
So there you have it, all of the gossip and snaps from the 2014 Cosmopolitan #FashFest event. I just wanted to say had an incredible experience at my first ever #FashFest and met some wonderful bloggers in the process, so thank you very much to Cosmopolitan for the invite and I can not wait until the next one!
Which one of the outfits is your favourite? I can not lie I want them all in my wardrobe!!
