Have you ever heard of a fashion show on ice before? That’s probably because it had never happened until this week when Very decided to organise a spectacular catwalk show at the Tower of London ice rink. It had the wow factor with gorgeous new fashion items and it had the X Factor as former contestant Ella Henderson took to the ice when the professional skaters had done their thing in the Spring Summer 2013 collection.
I had a chat with Ella after the show and she told me this was her first ever fashion show full stop. I hope she doesn’t get disappointed when she finds out the next one isn’t on ice! Also I caught up with Cheska Hull from Made in Chelsea (see our cheesey pic below), who told me she was off to New York after Christmas. Made in Chelsea has been sold to the Fox Network and this means the cast have been told to make the next series even more dramatic. This means even more love life drama – bring it on!
The evening started with some drinks and music to warm us all up before the skating started. TOWIE star Lauren Pope played DJ in rather fetching sparkly headphones. She looked stunning in a fur collar coat.
All the stars had front row seats – obviously – and they seemed to be enjoying it. Cheska sat next to her Made in Chelsea co-stars Ollie and Binky. How adorable are Binky’s snow boots?
Tom Pearce from The Only Way is Essex was on a date with The Bachelor winner Khloe Evans. It was slightly awkward for Khloe as her Made In Chelsea ex Spencer Matthews was also there. They asked to be sat far apart from each other and Spencer left as soon as the show was over. Khloe and Tom seemed to make a cute couple though.
And talking of cute, TOWIE star Joey Essex tried to impress the ladies by taking to the rink after the show. He actually did quite well, skating backwards and trying turns. Joey revealed to me he’s got a range of hair products out in 2013 – reem!
And finally, even I got on the ice with The Streets singer Leo Ihenacho who was rocking some new Very faux fur ear muffs. Leo’s got some solo music planned in 2013. Watch this space…
All of the stars that attended said they looked forward to seeing and wearing some of the new Spring Summer 2013 collection when it goes on sale. We’ll let you know who wears what.
