BEFFTA Press party

September 28, 2012 Leave a comment

The last few weeks have been a blur! It is an extremely busy time for me, what with filming, mentoring, a new staff selection process, a new office for Snobbish TV and the doing up of the new music studio! I am honestly not sure how I even made it to some of the recent events that I did; Wednesday night’s BEFFTA’s press party saw me sticking to my promise despite my sleep deprivation and attend nude; no make up, just red lips. The lipgloss that saved my life was the “Red Ruu” by Lipavenu Cosmetics; I find it applies easily with no mess, and although not a lip stain, the colour is long lasting; I only needed to reapply once throughout the night.

I could speak on the wonderful atmosphere, tasty canapés, great reception and inspirational people for many paragraphs however, time does not permit! More photos and coverage can be found on the new Snobbish TV website soon. I met some amazing people though and feel very blessed; you know who you are. Thank you for being an inspiration 🙂 

 

 

Lucy In Disguise Official Store Opening

September 17, 2010 Leave a comment


Thursday, 16 Sept 2010 saw the opening and launch party of Lucy In Disguise; the new store of gorgeous vintage finds and favourites from Lily Allen and half sister Sarah Owen.

They placed it in the heart of Covent Garden, and with London Fashion week arriving the launch couldn’t come at a better time. There was a great celeb turnout; we spotted Jaime Winstone, Professor Green, Daisy Lowe, Giggs, Nick Grimshaw, Miquita Oliver, Sharleen Spiteri, Rachel Stevens, Frankie Sandford, Meg Matthews, Gizzi Erskine, La Roux, Little Boots, Julian MacDonald and Lily Allens father, Keith Allen of course; he was looking very proud 🙂

The store is absolutely gorgeous; quirky, pretty and over two floors. We loved the sparkling chandelier and the beautifully dressed mannequins. Extreme attention to detail was apparent,with cute little glass cups, flowers, hats and gloves and dressing tables used as decoration. 

We ventured downstairs and found a cool and relaxed, yet excited atmosphere, with Lily Allens ex-boyfriend Seb Chew on the decks spinning us some funky tunes! Attendees were dancing, sipping on fruity cocktails or getting their tresses glammed up courtesy of Bumble and Bumble. And in fear of being too girly girly and boring the men with frock after frock, Lucy In Disguise had a wii game section! So you can leave your boyfriend in the waiting room playing playstation whilst you shop! Perfect!

Lily arrived in a long black dress with a white peter pan collar and a gorgeous quilted overcoat; she was loud, bubbly and excited and had a wii experience with Sarah before taking some pictures. She was very accommodating throughout the night; mingling very well and showing her guests and shoppers around the many rails of gorgeous vintage finds.

We enjoyed having a good snoop at pieces; with some starting from £50 but many being in the £1,000-1,500 range. Alongside collectibles like Pucci and Chanel, there are also treasures from lesser-known brands, including, Leonard, Zoe Coste and Bill Gibb. But the best thing is you can even hire some of the pieces; one dress was only $25 to hire! How amazing is that! Whatever your budget, you can afford to wear a gorgeous vintage frock! Giving it back may be where the problem starts though…

The store launch was quirky and fun; everything that describes Lily to a tee and we can honestly say the sisters did a great job.

Ps; Did we forget to mention how much they both look alike? Stunning!
Pps; Trust Lily to stock the goodie bags with Grey Goose! Lucy In Disguise also has an all-day vodka bar in store! Yes! We tell you no lies…
