Stars Party At The Cirque Du Soleil

Thought January was a quiet month? Not in the celebrity world as the opening VIP night of The Cirque Du Soleil was a very well attended event. The show itself is spectacular, returning to The Royal Albert Hall every year but changing the show’s format each time. This year the theme was ‘Quidam’. This means  celebrating the nameless passerby, the person living lost amidst the crowd in an all-too-anonymous society. According to the programme, Quidam (pronounced key-dam) is a story of the one who cries out near us. Deep! 

I thought because the subject was so intense it cold be a bit depressing but it was pure entertainment, and even better was that there was a good gang of celebs to talk to. With the exception of Tanya Burr, who looked gorgeous in a cute playsuit, the stars all seemed to be wearing black. I guess it’s slimming after the indulgences of Christmas! Here’s a round-up of the glam guests and a bit of goss:

Tanya Burr

Tanya really brightened up the night. The YouTube star is really getting the attention she deserves now as everyone knew who she was. What can we expect in 2014? More of the same but also she has an agent working on other projects. Go T!

The Saturdays’ Vanessa White

The singer looked really chic in a black jumpsuit, making the most of a break from The Saturdays to showcase her own unique style. 2014 will be an exciting one for them as they’re back on tour to promote their album Living For The Weekend. The tour dates are expected to be announced in the next few weeks and will be at the start of this year, within the next few months. I hope they had a good break over Christmas as they’re going to be dancing around again soon.

Tamara Ecclestone

How is Tamara Ecclestone seven months pregnant? That black dress hides everything! Tamara is very excited about becoming a mummy and it’s so sweet to see. She has everything planned and organised and just can’t wait to meet her bump. She revealed she practised over Christmas by helping her sister look after her niece Lavinia, who is 5 months old. She’s going to be one yummy mummy.

Hayley Tamaddon

Hayley’s back on Dancing on Ice and after he picked her up for photos at Cirque, she revealed she was having the second best time of her life. The best? When she was on the ITV contest for the first time and won it. This series of Dancing on Ice is all about the All Stars, rounding up previous contestants and Hayley and Dan did very well in Episode 1. All the training has had a good effect on Hayley’s legs at least – it’s no wonder she showed them off in a black playsuit. It’s definitely all about the playsuits and jumpsuits in the showbiz world right now…

Beth Tweddle


Another Dancing on Ice contestant, the Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle, went for a more girly option of an embellished skirt with a black top. She’s also photographed with her ice partner as they came straight from training. She’s definitely putting the work in to win this time.

Who do you think looked the best? I’m loving the playsuit & jumpsuit look!
