Elle Style Awards 2012

Last Monday, I arrived at work to be told I would be attending The Elle Style Awards on behalf of the company. Erm, WHAT. It's 9am on a Monday morning and I've just been told I'll be spending the evening smoozing (is that even a word?) with some of fashion's finest. Last year Blake Lively, Alexa Chung, Henry Holland, Emma Watson AND David Gandy attended and after checking this year's line up frantically after I was told, I was definitely in for a treat.

I opted to wear my Very dress teamed with my Miu Miu clutch for the occasion. I was slightly concerned that everyone there would be dressed in head to toe designer but I spotted some Topshop and ASOS getting down on the dancefloor and received a few compliments on my dress from people who couldn't believe where it was from. My manager and I arrived at the Savoy around 10pm and waited in a queue to get into the party and as I looked down this rather glam lady was walking up the stairs towards me dressed in a beautiful fur coat, turns out it was Naomi Campbell. Yep, one of the world's biggest super models just grazes past me. So casual. I was trying to keep my cool but to be honest, I was screaming and fan girling slightly inside.

As we sipped on mini bottles of Moet and chilli martinis (sounds gross, but they were delish!) we were treated to a performance from the gorgeous Emeli Sande who was joined on stage by none other than Professor Green (OH MY GOD). I have to say, I've always fancied him but he's even hotter in the flesh and really lovely. The DJ's on the night were playing some amazing tunes and there were celebrities everywhere I looked. We took a peek into the grand room where the actual awards were held and it was beautiful. I really need a nights stay in The Savoy!

Oh hello Eddie Redmayne!

The amazing goody bag which included: Elizabeth Arden 8 hour face cream, Vivienne Westwood perfume, a Next gift card, OPI Nail Varnish, Benefit Mascara, iPhone case and an amazing Valentine's Lola's cupcake.

If you want to check out the winners on the night, Catwalk Queen has done a round up. Massive thank you to Elle for putting on such a fantastic event. I won't be forgetting it any time soon.
