Fearne Cotton for Very Spring/Summer 2013 at Claridge's

On Thursday I was lucky enough to attend Fearne Cotton's Spring/Summer 2013 collection for Very at Claridge's on behalf of Motilo. It was a fun yet elegant affair as we waited in the bustling ballroom lobby where cocktails and miniature cupcakes were passed around and Michael Jackson/disco classics pumped from the DJ box. Lights were dim and the smell of roses wafted about the room amongst mini glass tables adorned with candles, which too hung from pink rose bushes below ginormous crystal chandeliers.

It was particularly busy and there was a constant queue for the bar. On the prospect of not being able to reach the bar, one woman's response was, "There's just no hope!" as more an more people and celebrities arrived, including Davina McCall, Brix Smith-Start, Professor Green, Sharleen Spiteri, Radio 1 presenter Gemma Cairney, TV chef Gizzi Erskine, the oh so handsome gold Olympic medallist Greg Rutherford, the dapper Reggie Yates and TV presenter Amanda Byram.

The collection, modelled by those including The Model Agency's Leomie Anderson and Leah Wood was made up of pretty floral prints, bright graphic loose layers, bold pattern and sheer pleated chiffon layering. My favourite pieces were the cream 60s inspired double breasted A-line coat, neon pink side panel cropped black trousers and cute yellow heart jumper. Sheer necklines, ruffled asymmetric hems, casual additions, with an emphasis on print, colour and the waist combined, formed a wearable, feminine and overall beautiful collection. The backdrop of blooming trees of white roses and large glass mirrors not only suited the collection entirely but made the most of a large rectangle catwalk space and the playlist included Forever by Haim. 

When the show came to an end, Cotton was handed flowers and humbly thanked editors and Very for "letting her do this (the show)" which was followed by huge applause. People clearly adore her; I'm also a huge fan of hers. She is absolutely beautiful in person and looked stunning pregnant wearing a simple long sheer black dress that she said she "squeezed into" and which exposed her back tattoos. She accompanied the pretty dress with nude block heels and 60s beehive; a style she suits perfectly. I wish her well with her baby and of course, a well constructed line of clothing.

Just Say It

This says it all really...

Feeling childish?

Wanting answers?
Feeling lazy?

Feeling complimentary?

Feeling lost?

Feeling loved-up? 
(God, what I would give to be lazing around sipping beer and eating greasy food with this man...)

Feeling determined?

Feeling optimistic?

Feeling tired?

Feeling hungry?
Feeling ruthless?

 or confused?
 thruthful? philosophical?
longing for that one night again?
emotional? bored?

How are you feeling right now?
What exciting prospects do you have to look forward to?
