Red Carpet Moments: August

Gemma Oaten

August is traditionally a quiet month as all the celebrities have jetted off on their holidays to the fabulous islands of Ibiza or Mykonos. In these Mediterranean locations, they make the beaches their red carpets! From Oliver Rousting and his fash-pack in Mykonos to presenters Zoe Hardman and Laura Whitmore in Ibiza – its all about sun this month!

Jetting off to Greece

I got a last minute call from my dear friends and Emmerdale stars Gemma Oaten and Alicya Eyo. Both of them have left the show and decided to get away from their dramatic storylines. They wanted to spend the week with me on the gorgeous Greek island of Patmos.

We stayed at the most amazing hotel called the Patmos Atkis Spa and Hotel. It wasn’t as much of a party island as Mykonos, but we did go out every night! We had a wonderful time and Gemma, who loves her fashion, looked stylish in the new Lipsy VIP collection from Michelle Keegan and swimwear from Ann Summers all week!

Celebrity spotting

Two people who have caught my eye this month have been Kimberly Walsh and Denise Van Outen. Both of them have been starring in the musical Sweet Charity, and both ladies have been wearing some strong stylish looks. On the final night of her run, Denise wore a really beautiful bodycon red sleeveless dress that was super on trend and really caught the eye with its detailing. Kimberly meanwhile was more paired back In a monochrome shirt and trousers combination.

To see where Nick spends his time when he’s not sunning himself on holiday, take a peek inside his London home and be inspired by his unique interior style.
