catwalk styling at the look show!10.16.2012
wowza what an event! you may remember my behind the scenes post I wrote at look magazine? yes I was lucky enough to be a part of this incredible experience!
as I write this I have my hair scraped up, a distinct lack of make up on and I'm sporting my beloved and well worn pj's (don't tell anyone) quite the contrast to the glamour of the day itself!
we arrived early to watch the rehearsals; seeing the runway models plus kelly brook and alesha dixon warming up for the show. after a quick perv on the above mentioned (by both my boyfriend and I) we were taken for our interviews with zara martin!
we didn't know this was going to happen on camera; cue bumbling speeches and awkward giggles (so grown up) before we posed for several (dozen) photos aha!
here are the other lovely ladies:
this years venue was simple beautiful; the royal courts of justice provided the perfect setting for the catwalk.
after resisting the temptation to peek inside the goodie bags (sooooo hard) we went off to the pre show champagne and cocktail reception.
there was smashbox makeovers, photo booth frolics and canape stealing while we all mingled and tried not to harass the likes of whitney port who we were all pretty excited to meet in the flesh!
everyone took their seats for the show, I was very happy to be front row as one of the style search winners; I had the best view of all the fashion loveliness!
kelly brook kicked off the proceeding in a slinky little number from her line for new look, this girl really does have curves in all the right places (my bf has confirmed this numerous times since)
high street fashions from the likes of river island, warehouse, next, boohoo, fashion union and many more came down the runway.
after alesha dixon performed, it was out turn to be part of the show!
out came the models wearing our outfits while the guests were told about the style search competition, our photos and details were even projected on the main stage so there was no keeping a low profile... yikes!
I didn't realise our styling efforts were going to be such a big part of the show, it was an incredible moment!!
after the last of the models shimmed out the show literally finished with a bang, we were showered in red glitter confetti.
we went back for more champs and gossipping at the after show gathering! I met some amazing people and some of my favourite bloggers; it was a fantastic day and if I get the chance to go back next year I'll bite someones hand off!
the team at look all worked incredible hard to put together a brilliant show this year, it definitely paid off! congratulation girls! you can see more photos of all the catwalk news and celeb appearances on the look magazine here!
so did anyone else get to the show? what did you think?
ps: here I am looking like an excited geek aha, I'll put up the details of my outfit on another post!
plus my gorgeous model maddie on the catwalk.. I hope you like what I selected. I opted for a chashing colour pop combination!
full coverage of the show is out in the magazine today so go grab yourself a copy; I can't wait to see what fashions are in the show edition!
