Oh what a night….InStyle’s Best of British Talent Party!

Last night FFG was invited to attend InStyle’s second annual Best of British Talent Party, in association with Lancome,  at Shoreditch House. And what a night it turned out to be.  The list of celebrities that filled the room is too plentiful to list so we’ll just shoot out a few of the highlights. Guests in attendance included Thandie Newton (in Jonathan Saunders), Heidi Klum (in Marchesa), David Gandy, Olivia Inge (in Alberta Ferretti), Henry Holland, Sophie Ellis Bextor and more.

The party was a celebration in anticipation of the forthcoming BAFTA awards.  InStyle and Lancome wanted to honour the talent in Britain with a lovely cocktail party which would feature all that this beautiful country has to offer for talent on the big screen!

Eilidh MacAskill, Editor InStyle commented, “InStyle’s Bafta party, in its second year, is all about exciting young talent in film and television with music and fashion sprinkled on top. We look forward to celebrating all of the people we’ll be watching in 2011, and Julian Broad’s beautiful Bafta portfolio featured in our March issue.”

Not only did the night feature fantastic faces…but also amazing cocktails and canapes.  The menu included lobster and avocado tortillas, beef carpaccio with parmesan crostini, salmon tartare on baby endive and goats cheese & black truffle ravioli.  All was washed down with Grey Goose cocktails and way too many glasses of Taittinger Champagne (and Vedett beer for the blokes). 

There were even Lancome make-up artists circulating throughout the night making sure every face was in impeccable “photo-op” shape…oh, it’s such a hard life!
