THE BRITISH FASHION AWARDS 2013

Dress code..............
Go British or go home.

Last night was all about acknowledging the who's who in the fashion industry, not only in the UK, but world wide.
Gywneth Paltrow presented an Award to Muccia Prada, Kate Moss was honored for her 25 years in the industry and my adorable Sophia Webster was the Winner of emerging talent and so she should be, b'cos her shoes are beyond fabulous!
Phew, that was a super duper long sentence, she laughs.
Anyway, and so the night went on, with dinner served to the VIP's and champagne, drinks and finger food served, all nice and yummy and it took the edge off so u could really enjoy the show. 
There were other winners such as, Model Edie Campbell, who became model of the year.
Dontella Versace awarded Chritopher Kane with the Womanswear Designer of the year.
Tinie Tempah awarded Christopher Bailey winner of the Menswear Designer of the year.
Actress, Sienna Miller presented Christopher Bailey for Burberry, winner of the Brand of the year award.
Suzt Menkes was awarded the special recognition award.
Harry Styles, winner of the British Style Award.

So what did I wear?
The invitation said that we had to dress British, so I tried to stay within those lanes, b'cos I wasn't sure if they might be checking labels at the door and didn't want to dare them. 
Hahaha
The feathered cape is actually from TopShop by Kate Moss.:-))
The dress is a simple flat front no-name dress I got a long time ago. 
The boots were from H&M by Anna Dello Russo
Bag is from Sax 5th Avenue in New York
And the star of the show are the red chop sticks which I got at a Chinese restaurant down the street from me, & at the suggestion of my husband, I painted the Red with my Revlon nail polish!   
Hahahahaha! 
Yep, you gotta be creative if u wanna be in FASHION!
I adore these boots and intend to wear them a lot this winter, they go up right past the knee, very Fab!
That face!
So I made it all about the Ruby Woo lip to match my fabulous freshly painted chop sticks.
Blusher was by Sleek cosmetics and I contoured my face with Mac cosmetics and my adorable beauty blender.
I kept my eyes simple b'cos I was wearing such a strong lip colour and just spread glitter over the entire eye lid and lined them with the blackest black liner I've discovered to date, by Urban Decay
Seated and ready:-)
Agggggrh
I had a fantastic time but my feet were KILLING me from all the networking and partying I did. 
Gift bags are always nice!
I loved my Mac give-aways. 
In my bag I had the lip colour called Lady Danger which is a lovely tomato-red lipstick!! Adore!
And the mascara is called False Lashes Mascara in false Black. 
Totally loved the wand and I know it's going to work wonders.
Smiling from ear to ear. 
We got some other goodies like luxury chocolate, gift vouchers, a beautiful pen from American Express. :-))


It was a great night and it was so nice to make new friends in the industry, one party just leads to the next. 
Yep! London is definitely Rocking & Rolling.
