Celebrities Dress Up For Special 50th Notting Hill Carnival

How was your bank holiday weekend? One of the brightest places to spend it (in terms of fashion at least) was in London’s Notting Hill, where it was carnival time. The Notting Hill carnival is now in its 50th year, so the crowds came out despite the rain  to party and twerk. No carnival is complete without a bit of booty shaking!

This year, it seemed like the party started before carnival as the celebs gathered at the house of comedian Jack Whitehall and his actress girlfriend Gemma Chan to dress up. Gemma’s front right in the pic above with a multi-coloured printed jacket. I love it!

Millie Mackintosh really got into the carnival vibe with her friends and her husband Professor Green. A lot of people were looking at her as she’s not quiet, especially when she laughs. But then she has no reason to be shy, does she? When she looks like that in her black shorts and ankle boots, then there’s no point hiding away

Meanwhile Carolline Flack and Laura Whitmore tried to fade more into the background in their sailors hats. Check out this photo they uploaded to Instagram.


The only flaw is that when you’re that pretty everyone is going to look twice. Caroline’s nautical striped t-shirt took the sailor theme to a new level, but I like how Laura Whitmore only half embraced it with a spotted top. It just proves that even fancy dress can be done in style.

Have a fantastic four day week now! It will be the weekend again before we know it.

Love Zoex
