I didn’t know what to expect from the Lipsy VIP Awards as it’s the first time Lipsy has ever hosted its own awards ceremony…but what a way to start it off. The event in West End club DSTRKT was seriously star-studded. To keep the girls happy were Aston and Oritise, formerly from JLS. But it was mainly an evening for the girls (as it is fashion after all!) I spotted Essex diva Amy Childs, the ultimate WAG Alex Gerard, 90210 star Jessica Lowndes, Caprice, actress Hayley Tamaddon, Hollyoaks actress Rachel Shenton, Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan and Ashley James and Cheska Hull from Made in Chelsea. What were they all wearing? Lipsy, of course! The dresses they’re wearing are from the new collection, out next month, so it was a good opportunity to see what’s coming up in terms of fashion.
I especially loved Michelle Keegan’s monochrome dress (above). She won soap’s sexiest star award. Again. No other actress can ever compete against her as she’s won the same category at the National TV Awards, the TV BAFTAs and the Soap Awards as well. But I have to hand it to her, she looked gorgeous. Here are my other top three pick of dresses from the evening and I have a bit of gossip about what the stars are up to as well:
Alex, who presented an award, is the new face of the Lipsy VIP Collection. Clearly she had her pick of the dresses and she definitely chose well with this fishtail maxi dress didn’t she? You can get a similar dress in white at Very right now.
Jessica has been in the UK visiting her boyfriend Thom Evans. 90210 is finished so she is pursuing new acting roles. Looking as she does in her pretty black and white Lipsy dress, she won’t be short of offers.
Misha has just got off tour with Nicki Minaj and has just released a single Here’s To Everything and has some festivals planned over the summer. No wonder she’s smiling so widely – this girl has no shortage of work. She’s also looking quite slim right now – the black dress she picked really suited her.
Alex, Misha and Jessica all have totally different styles but they all looked great in their individual outfits. It just goes to show that there’s a Lipsy dress for everyone!
