This Wednesday I went to the Cosmo Lingerie Show for 2015. After going to last year’s Cosmo Fashfest, I really wanted to do another one. It’s such a great evening to do with girlfriends you get a bunch of free goodies, free drinks and an evening’s entertainment, what’s not to love?!
This time, the event was held at the Bloomsbury Ballroom near Holborn. We arrived a bit early so we decided to go to a bar on the corner of Bloomsbury Square and wait till the doors opened. When it was time to go, I changed my Melissa flats for Melissa heels and we walked to the venue just in time. Inside we were greeted by a grand looking marble hall, and the queue disappeared down a marble staircase rose petals were scattered on the floor, such a great effect!
We left our coats and made our way down some more stairs where the venue awaited us. I had bought my outfit the weekend before at Westfield Stratford City- I decided to get a co-ord set from House of Celeb Boutique in khaki with gold detail and pair it with an orange tailored blazer (also Celeb Boutique). I fell in love at first sight with this set and you can’t go wrong with CB- their stretchy and strong material is Herve inspired and will mould to fit your shapes and curves to make you look fabulous.
We took a look at all that was on show: Very.co.uk had a rack of colourful delicates, as did Wonderbra, Freya, Bluebella and Coco de Mer. There were many competitions to enter and lingerie to feel and was a fantastic way to get everyone thinking about what they wear underneath their layers!
The show started off with a few songs from X Factor’s Rebecca Ferguson, and we had an inspirational talk from Kris, the founder of Coppafeel about breast cancer awareness. Rumour has it that Anne Summers will be next on board to support the fabulous charity!
I’ve selected a few of my favourite looks from the catwalk, plus what was in our goodie bags! The models were excellent, and represented a range of shapes and sizes so you could see the pieces from different perspectives. My fav thing from the goodie bag was the bourjois 3D effect lipgloss. This was super and stayed on all day valentine’s day! I have yet to try out the lingerie we received from Wonderbra and Freya- though I’m sure they will not disappoint!
I cannot recommend Cosmo’s events highly enough, if you want to check out more from the night, Cosmopolitan also have a write up here
