British Fashion Awards 2013 With Gorgeous Couture

Last Monday saw the London Coliseum host an evening of glitz & glamour for the British Fashion Awards 2013. Such an event requires a fabulous frock, which the lovely ladies at Gorgeous Couture very kindly provided. I chose the Sienna Maxi in a soft dusky pink hue, as I didn't want to go for the obvious black or red, and pink is the colour of the season so thought I would be pastel pretty for the night! I should also add what a fantastic service the team provide at the luxury label; I emailed the lovely Amy on Thursday with my dress choice, she informed me the Sienna was out of stock in the pink but had asked the designers to make one up for me especially, and it was delivered on the Saturday! Gorgeous Couture provide an extremely friendly and reliable service and not to mention some divine dresses - I would highly recommend using them for any special occasion requiring a show stopping outfit!

I Teamed the dress with my pretty, sparkly clutch bag from my Accessorize press day goodie bag, which provided a perfect colour duo.
I wanted to accessorise a little differently as it was such a glamorous event. My beady magpie eye fell in love with this gorgeous blue faux fur stole from Topshop while shopping in London the week before...I knew instantly that I had to have it, and it had to be worn to the BFA's, regardless of what dress I'd be wearing! It complimented my pastel theme rather deliciously.

My lovely Mumma Magpie spotted this delicate layered choker style necklace in a charity shop and instantly thought it would be the perfect piece of jewellery for my dress, and she was quite right!

A few pictures from the evening...

My friend Katy & I with the incredible Lucinda Chambers from British Vogue. It was such an honour to have the chance to meet & chat with her briefly after the awards - such a genuine and down to earth lady! She also told my friends and I how gorgeous she thought we all looked, which was a very lovely thing!
 On the red carpet!
1. Cheeky ladies room selfie at the London Coliseum, 2. Slightly too many complimentary champagnes at the bar prior to the awards starting... 3. Especially since we had some in our hotel room before setting off...! 4. My friend very kindly did my hair for me for the night, using her Babyliss heated rollers - I don't think my hair had ever been so glossy and sleek before without having been to a salon!
 Girlies ready for the red carpet back at our hotel...

1. Red carpet, 2. Spectacular detail in the London Coliseum! 3. BFA 2013, 4. Lovely MAC and Label.m treats in the goody bag (and some naughty but nice choccies!)

Kate Moss accepting her Special Recognition award for her incredible 25 year career and continuous contribution to the fashion industry. Some exciting news - she will be launching a new collection for Topshop in 2014! Further to that, she was recently appointed Contributing Fashion Editor for British Vogue, and her first story will be published in a forthcoming Spring issue! I cannot wait to see what the iconic model and fashion guru comes up with...

A few of my favourite red carpet looks...
Kate Moss looking as chic as ever. I love Laura Bailey's pastel pink look - great minds think alike hey! Sophia Webster looks adorable in this cute dress and shoes of her own design.
Amber le bon looks like an incredibly sultry siren in this dress and vampy smoky eyes! The gorgeously quirky Lulu Guiness in all black everything and a bag of her own design. Sienna Miller looks a dream in green on the red carpet!
