I went to the 2010 BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday as a reporter for AllSaints. I headed down to the red carpet ready for all the stars of the small screen to arrive. Here’s what happened….
Friday 21st May 2010 – BAFTA’s Rehearsal – The Pelham Hotel, South Kensington.
So, as it happens, I never ever really wear black… But I thought wearing black would make me look sophisticated (and you need to be sophisticated for a BAFTA’s rehearsal). As it also happens, Friday 21st May turned out to be the hottest day on earth, EVER. I also, very rarely use the London Underground as I’m a cyclist. Hot weather+black+the underground= Hot and not so sophisticated!
I rocked up at The Pelham, in oh-so-posh South Kensington early morning. The Pelham is tres pretty and literally round the corner from South Kensington Tube. So as soon as I arrived I helped set up the AllSaints room and make up the goodie bags!
After finishing off the AllSaints room, I was ready for my first appointment, with MAC. I had a full face of make up done; a completely different look to what I normally go for! So that was a nice change! I got loads of great tips and tricks too;o Not to mention the amazing goodie bag of MAC treats I walked away with!
I then headed off to the Mark Hill suite to chat to his to head stylists (these guys have just changed the lovely Fearne Cotton into more of a brunette!).
So then it was back to the AllSaints suite for our appointments…
So make sure you watch the BAFTA TV awards to see all of this madness in action!

I’ve seen a few pieces that I’ll certainly have on my wishlist (namely the canvas peeptoe boots – £160!)

Not the best picture in the world, but it gives us a wee taste of what the Lily Allen CHANEL campaign is going to be like – and frankly, I actually can’t wait to see more!
The composition looks nice 🙂 I’d like to see more images of Lily’s face though! Hurry up CHANEL!
What do you think of Lily and CHANEL?
Ms. Judy Pink.
I know this is slightly old news, I haven’t had time to get round to writing about this yet! Sorry guys! Also, apologies for this very suddenly turning into a CHANEL blog! Unfortunately, Chanel happens to be my favourite fashion house, so thats probably why I’m leaning more towards Chanel at the moment….
Anyway, this is by the by…
It has apparently been confirmed that British muscian and fashionista Lily Allen has been picked as the newest face of Chanel by Mr Karl Lagerfeld himself.
Lets be honest, it’s been on the cards for yonks! Lily is always front row at fashion weeks, whether that be Chanel or not, she’ll always be sporting at least one piece of Chanel. She owns dozens of Chanel handbags – and is most often carrying (rather roughly sometimes – which does upset me somewhat) the grey large camera bag.
I have to say I was, and still am, in two minds about this collaboration. I on the one hand, think its great. I actually quite like Lily now – although it was only last year she went a little bit mental and dyed her hair blonde-ish and then pink… and only a year before that when she was wearing the hideous prom dress/trainers combo. BUT how she has bloody well blossomed! Just look at her in the picture above, quite the ‘Chanel Girl‘. It makes me smile.
But still, what would Gabrielle Chanel say? Surely she’d be turning in her grave? Hmm. I’m not so sure. One thing I am sure about is I’m very excited to see the shoot and the campaign. I’m sure she’ll look amazing. She’ll be the face of the leather goods – about right really considering she’s never seen without the aforementioned leather goods in question!
What do you think? Good or bad decision on Mr Lagerfelds part?
