Victoria’s Secret Show London 2014

By December 9, 2014 Catwalk, Celebrities, Events

IMG_0811

This time last week I was over excited because I was attending the Victoria’s Secret Show 2014 in London, the first one ever in the British capital and the second one in Europe (first one was in Cannes in 2010). I met the gorgeous Angels backstage and then saw them giving it all on the runway, followed by an awesome after party.What an amazing experience it was! The music performances of the show were Taylor Swift (performed twice) , Ariana Grande (who nailed it), Ed Sheeran (yeah, they needed they red-haired British boy) and Hozier.

It was incredible to see up close what goes behind all the massive production of world’s biggest catwalk show and the power behind the lingerie empire. I was covering some bits for The Independent, and HERE you can see some of our coverage as insiders!

Tonight you can watch the show at 10pm on CBS, but first take a sneak peek below from my iPhone diary and in my video below! Enjoy!

Summer Series with Amex: Clean Bandit

By July 23, 2014 Events, OUT N' ABOUT

20140720-141103-51063087.jpg Last weekend the wonderful team of Amex treated me to one cool Saturday on a beautiful summer day in London. And that was a trip to one of the top music festivals in the capital, this time at the iconic Somerset House, Summer Series. If I wasn’t a fan before, I might be now. What cool band! Their Rather Be tune is and will certainly be on repeat all week… The event started and ended amazingly well at the Amex VIP bar, where I met the lovely band after their show. So whatever you call their very unique music, which involves a wide variety of music instruments  conservatoire garage? Baroque house? The classical dance sound of Clean Bandit is firing up this year.

Clean Bandit is part of the stellar line-up for this year’s Summer Series at Somerset House with American Express.

WIRELESS FESTIVAL 2014 WITH STEVE MADDEN: Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Tinie Tempah and Iggy Azalea

By July 7, 2014 Events

20140706-015359-6839712.jpg

This weekend Steve Madden treated us to an epic time at London’s annual Wireless Festival. Wearing everything Steve Madden, we hit the grounds of Finsbury Park just to have a blast and dance at the tunes of Iggy Azalea, Tinie Tempah, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West. Boom! We were treated at the VIP area, which I must say it’s 100% WORTH IT!

ITALIAN BRUNCH AT HOUSE OF PERONI

By May 15, 2014 Events, OUT N' ABOUT

house-of-peroni7

In 1963 Lamborghini was born, Fellini’s great films emerged and Carlo Peroni founded Peroni Nastro Azzurro. All this is celebrated at House of Peroni in London, a pop-up building which has its doors opened for the month of May (closing 31st).

Think of Italian fashion houses (Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Alberta Ferreti, Moschino, Bottega Veneta and so on…), Italian food (I literally could eat buffalo mozzarella, pizza and past every day if I could), Italian motoring (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Fiat, Vespa…) and Italians (good looking, loud and fun) – so, what’s not to like from everything Italian? I didn’t need another reason to come and visit House of Peroni.

The three-floors georgian townhouse was turned into a space dedicated to fashion, art, design and dining. It features an outdoor pavilion on the ground floor and a series of immersive installations and the interior is based on the italian beer brand’s heritage and style.

Having lots of events scheduled to choose from, from mixiology to lessons on the art of gelato, I thought it was worth tasting a different face of italian food, so I attended to the Italian Brunch Club hosted by Toto, Silvio and Chiara, the trio behind Italian Supper Club. “La Nonna” menu even included a croissant filled with lobster. What can I say? It was delish.

Scroll down and join me for a tour across all floors of House of Peroni and imagine the flavours of this local food.

VOGUE FESTIVAL 2014

By April 1, 2014 Events, OUT N' ABOUT, Vogue

vogue-festival-2014

Vogue Festival’s 2014 just passed by last weekend, and being my first visit to the event that has been running for two years, I must admit I enjoyed every minute of it. Getting the chance to experience the talk on “fashion, beauty and digital revolution” with Miroslava Duma (someone who I deeply admire), awesome designer Mary Katrantzou, photography legend Nick Knight and Pixie Geldof -all welcomed to the stage by British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman- was just perfect for what we all face everyday in the social media and understanding how all this social media influences the fashion business. Other talks had Valentino, Naomi Campbell and Karlie Kloss.

Not only that, some fun spaces for girly spoils welcomed fashionistas to shake up their hairstyles at the Kerastase stand, or to geh the nails done at the OPI spot, or even better, get a dramatic make-up by Burberry’s beauty line, all followed by a photobooth – this always is fun!

The best space was taken over Harrods, which with its #HarrodsLive offered a unique experience on its shiny catwalk, which usually would seem pretty scary, but although they took you as their model with a whole production team, they made it FUN, FUN. Anyone, could walk the catwalk.

I went with my mom on mother’s day (in the UK) and it was kind of the perfect date for da sisterhood. I got the coolest hairdo, she got the sexy waves, and we both hit the runway!

I would def come back next year, and hopefully to more talks!

LONDON FASHION WEEKEND: ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL FASHIONISTAS

By February 24, 2014 DATE WITH MUM, Events, LFW

somerset-house-fashion

Another London Fashion Weekend to talk about… I’ve been attending practically every year.

Taking place at the iconic building of Somerset House, right after the autumn/winter 2014 shows and presentations, the the accessible event for all those Londoners that fancy getting in the hectic atmosphere of London Fashion Week took over. Not only that, you can shop designers clothes, shoes and jewellery for great prices (eg. French Sole ballerinas, usually at a price around £180, were all at £65), enjoy beauty treatments, seat on the front row of the catwalk that presents the trends of the current season (spring/summer 2014) and best of all, you can have a girly date, with a glass of champagne in hand, with your girlfriends. I went with my partner in crime of the blog, my mom, who wore an extra cool sweatshirt (see similars here)!

Anyhow, we of course jump in for any photobooth, so we did at Maybelline’s space wearing some of their senseless accessories, and then jumped in the Canon 360 studio, an uber cool spot where you can see your shot 360 degrees, see below to understand what I mean! You might wonder ‘how is this accesible to me?’. Well, tickets are available to purchase from their website and the price range varies depending on what you want (only shopping, shopping + catwalk, or shopping + catwalk + goodie bag). Alternatively, you could be the lucky one that wins tickets, like my reader Katherine, who was the winner of the giveaway on my blog I ran in association with one of the event’s sponsor, Amex.  Check out my previous LFWeekend experiences HERE.

Next season (September 2014), spoil yourself and plan a date with friends to London Fashion Weekend… You will enjoy it to the full!

Meanwhile, watch an exclusive video produced by Amex for FashionInsideOut with British TV Presenter and BBC Radio DJ Lauren Laverne, who brings you a sneak peek from behind the scenes, revealing the fashion trends that will dominate the high street in the coming months and finding out how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe. Enjoy!
