The Vogue Festival 2015

Today marked the beginning of the fourth year of the Vogue Festival, this was mine and Sarah’s third year at the festival (we missed last year because we were both working on a West End show)

We arrived in good time to get our seats for the Christian Louboutin talk with Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman.

The talk was billed as ‘Tales From Beyond The Red Sole’ and once the lights went down in the auditorium, the pack of fashionistas fell silent, whipped out their iPhones, iPads and various other cameras with their LEDs shinning bright, ready to snap a picture of the hero of the moment

My favourite picture shown during the talk was this one of Dita Von Teese, Scarlett Johansson and the man himself, Christian Louboutin, apparently it was taken at a “famous actors birthday party” – no name dropping here! But doesn’t it just look like such a fun party!?!

After the hour long talk, we left the Geographical Society and headed over to the Royal College of Art where all the foyer activities were being held. Needless to say, as everyone left the talk at the same time, everyone turned up at the front doors at the same time too! But thankfully there was a lovely Gentleman porter from Harrods there to greet us all, which he did with a big smile, which was very welcome!

Cake pops! We didn’t partake in these, but they were oh so cute

The foyer was heaving, but it was far better laid out than in previous years, so it was very comfortable for everyone to mill around with ease. We went over to the Vogue cover shoot first, Chanel make up artists freshened up your look and then you were “camera ready”

We were pretty chuffed with how ours turned out!

Afterwards we had a snoop around the Vogue Shop

here you could find items by Aspinal of London (key ring for £30), Sweaty Betty (workout gym trousers with “Vogue” printed up the shin £50) as well as many, many books by all the esteemed speakers

One of my favourite parts of the festival is the Vogue Wall, guys and gals lined up to get their moment in front of all those famous covers

We hung out at the Recharge Cafe and enjoyed some Harrods Champagne to boot!

Everyone present was having a brilliant time and the buzz at the festival was fantastic

After a final sweep, we headed back towards home, stopping off at the Royal Albert Hall for a quick snap in their windows

We went for a late lunch in the High Road Brasserie in Chiswick

The fresh bread was devoured in seconds – after all our heel tottering we’d worked up quite an appetite!

And we couldn’t say no when we were offered some scrummy cocktails, Sarah went for a Soho Mule which had an intense ginger kick! I went for my old favourite Cosmopolitan and we clinked to a day well done

Sarah had the pea and asparagus risotto which was absolutely delicious

While I had their bacon and avocado, chicken salad – which was excellent

Over our shared deserts we indulged in a glass of Prosecco – because why not?!

First we sampled the Lemon Meringue, which was soft and light and NOM!

Next came the Chocolate tort – wow – it was amazing, so rich and definitely made for sharing, but you’d be in trouble without the salt on top, it really helps cut through the richness and allows you to have just that little bit more!

To round out our epic lunch we had delicious Americanos – yes we drink our coffee black – we’re so hard core
