So far this week has been a lot of early starts and late finishes but it’s been SO much fun! The great and good of menswear and the grooming industry braved the rain on Tuesday morning for the GQ Grooming Awards 2016 in Mayfair in Central London where the winners of the best lotions and potions for men were unveiled.
Afterwards I headed to a studio in West London for a really fun shoot with Candid magazine and their upcoming London special. The stylist had such a beautiful range of clothes chosen for me so I was in heaven. I fell in love with this brown shearling contrast trim coat from Scotch & Soda Atelier.
That evening, I hit the green carpet for the Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of The Year Awards. I was filming at the event and had such a laugh interviewing Twiggy, Anne Robinson, the gorgeous Emma Bunton, Joey Essex and lovely chap Oliver Proudlock. Fans of Twiggy will be interested to hear that she has a new collection of specs in the pipeline launching very shortly.
Bradley Walsh hosted the Awards and was ably assisted by former X Factor judge Louis Walsh on the panel to judge the over winner. I presented the Irish winner, the very lovely Kate Brennan from Dublin. Once official proceedings were over, we hit the dance floor with Sarah Harding on the decks.
This week also saw the launch of the new #StyldBy project I’m doing with Gap. Gap has teamed up with GQ magazine to launch a range of limited-edition pieces. The capsule collection, which features designs from David Hart, Stampd, NSF and The Hill-Side offers a re-imagined take on classic menswear pieces for a fresh approach to some much-loved staples. I got to road test the collection in a shoot around the streets of London.
That’s it for now, I’m off to catch up on some much-needed zzzzzzzz’s!
Get social with me!
