Cocktails & Catwalks, The Look Show 2011

Event: The Look Show
Place: Westfield Centre, Stratford
Purpose: To see some gorgeous clothes from top high street brands and check out the hair. 

I managed to get some tickets to the gun show for the Look Show, and myself & Kristie (my lovely plus one, who is the lender of hair!) headed down on the train for a day of clothes, champers and chatter!
The Westfield Centre is huge, and was amazingly busy. So we stopped for cocktails on the way...
How did I wear my hair, I decided to go for my simple big braided updo. Easy, and it stayed put, photos are from the end of the day! What do you think?
The show was great, Sarah Harding strutted her stuff down the Look catwalk, with some amazing Copper finger waves. I didn't even recognise her! Kelis & Alesha Dixon (ENTAAARRRR) were front row to check out how the big high street brands will be kitting us out this Autumn & Winter. I was really impressed with Dionne Bromfield, she's tiny, but has such a great voice live.
Hair wise I saw influences from the 20's/30's with slick styles on short crops that looked fantastic against tailored trousers and shift dresses. Textured hair looked fabulous in a half up style. It was twisted into a vertical roll, then left loose. A simple style that will look great and the disheveled look works so well during this season and it's weather. Do you like the textured look?
I had a great time, and briefly bumped into Lily, and saw Jen (so near yet so bloody far!!) from a distance, such a shame I didn't get to see more of some lovely bloggers but it was manic! The caramel nibbles and water in the goody bag definitely helped the train journey home. And I was more than happy on swiping my gift card in Miss Selfridge to find I'd won £20! So I bought a very pretty blouse.
I'm exhausted, but battling on tomorrow as I'm attending a Coterie event to see more fashion fabulous hair! Massive thanks to Look, and I'm looking forward to the next show already!


  1. Ohh your hair looked fantastic! Do you think you could do a tutorial on it? I'd be interested in seeing how it's done, and attempt to do it myself, although I'd probably fail haha!
    You're very lucky to be able to go, and congrats on winning the £20! xx

  2. Katy, you can give it a go, my tutorial is here. Let me know how you get on. :) xx

  3. Your hair looked way better than the girls on the catwalk! I'm not keen on that bleached out candyfloss look! x

  4. The braids are adorable! You're so fantastic at hairstyles. =)

  5. Lovely posted with true beauty and having lots of stylish information. You have delightfully maintained.

  6. Ahhh looks like you had a fab time. I scrolled to look at the pics before reading (bad habit I know) and thought 'that gorgeous model looks a bit like Sarah Harding'Doh! Your hair looks lovely in the big braid. I've always wanted to try finger waves but never been able to do it - would love to see a video tutorial of one if you are stuck for a topic one day soon ;) xx
