Face of Fabulous launch party

Last week, the lovely guys at Fabulous magazine invited me to the a secret bloggers party to announce a very special exclusive to some gorgeous bloggers including Fi from Save Our Shoes, Carina from Carina 100, Frankie from Swell Vintage, Sherin from Hi Fashion, Susie from Take-out in Couture, Ronke from The Musings of Ondo Lady and Jenny from The Style PA. We were given a behind-the-scenes peek into life at Fabulous, a chance to raid their New Look fashion wardrobe and getting our hair and makeup did in their beautiful offices which had stunning views across London.

There was a point to all that fun, honest. The party was purpose of the party was to launch the ‘Face of Fabulous’ model competition, in association with Next Model Management. The lucky competition winner will appear on the cover of the magazine as well as a year’s contract with Next, who have the likes of Alexa Chung, Alice Dellal, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Karlie Kloss and Anja Rubik on their impressive roster. The competition is hosted on the Fabulous Facebook page, all you need to do is upload a picture by 2nd July as public voting closes on 4th. The next stage of the competition will be judged by Fabulous’ editor Rachel Richardson, fashion director Tracey Lea Sayer and Next Model Management’s head of new faces Ross Young.

I had lots of fun catching up with some of my favourite blogger ladies over cupcakes and champage. The team at Rush did a fab job of curling and styling my hair – which has been recently highlighted, more on that in another post. The highlight was definitely playing dress up with Sherin and Susie though, these killer shoes from the New Look x LCF collaboration were my favourite by far. It’s totally ok to base an outfit around a pair of shoes, right?! Here’s pictorial evidence of what went down….
