Red Carpet highlights for July
The celebrity red carpet season never ends and this month has been a whirlwind of glamour and style. I had a call from Eva Longoria to attend her Global Gift Gala in Marbella and I jumped at the chance to go. I invited my dear friend Laura Pradelska from Game Of Thrones to attend.
She loves fashion, and I knew she would wear something stunning. She opted for a black Roberto Cavalli dress teamed with some stunning Manolo Blahniks and a Lulu Guinness clutch in the shape of a mirror ball! With her hair slicked back and a cool red lipstick, she looked every inch the star. I loved it and so did Eva who was in an elegant black dress with bright red lipstick too – so on trend.
Red lipstick is key
We also went with Claire Merry, model and owner of lingerie brand Dirty Pretty Things – she wore a pink dress with towering heels and red lipstick once again. We partied all night dancing to the brilliant Black Eyed Peas DJ Taboo until very late.
Summer in the city
Back in London its been a busy time and although the celebs are mostly enjoying their summer holidays in August, it was time to host one more party. The online charity Charity Stars asked me to host#agoodsummerparty at Sanctum Hotel in Soho. Lots of stars came to support the charity initiative, including TOWIE star Jessica Wright, who looked stunning in a shirt and trousers combination that was totally on trend and perfect for a rooftop party.
DJ and presenter Zoe Hardman dressed in a very Ibiza style with cute cut off denim shorts and a long fringed waistcoat. It was model Casey Batchelor who stole the limelight in an orange dress so bright that you couldn’t miss, which of course the paparazzi loved – and so did I.
See you next month, Nick x
