The OK! Beauty Awards 2016 sponsored by Debenhams Beauty Club

So guys, I’ve been absolutely dying to tell you about one of my latest events of a life time! No other than the 15th annual Beauty Awards 2016 took place on Thursday 24th of November at the Banqueting House, London. Presented with OK! – the leading celebrity magazine and sponsored by Debenhams Beauty Club I’m sure you would expect an evening of decadence, glitz and glam. And I’m telling you it did not disappoint!

Myself and Maddie Bruce shared the honour of being invited by the Debenhams PR team, they had organised a whole host of treatments for us before the big night. We were invited to Debenhams Oxford Street store to pick our outfits. The personal stylist experience was absolutely brilliant and we spent ages trying different things on, it was so hard to choose as there were so many beautiful pieces to choose from.

I picked a gorgeous full length gown by No1 Jenny Packham in pale pink with sparkly beading here Maddie opted for a lovely black and silver embellished top also by No. 1 Jenny Packham here and a beautiful light pink feather skirt – Butterfly by Mathew Williamson here
We had our makeup done by Urban Decay using some favourite products, we both went for a neutral/bronze smokey eye and a nude lip to keep it classic.


The awards ceremony was being held at The Banqueting House of Whitehall Palace. Quite the location! It started with a champagne reception, followed by a three course dinner, the food was exceptional I opted for the vegetarian option which was absolutely delicious. The dessert was delicious and very well presented as you can see – a lips shaped cheesecake and a chocolate lipstick, it just couldn’t get any better then that! 🙂


Ferne McCann presented the awards, there were so many categories and some absolutely amazing brands and products which I love. I won’t go through all of them but here is what Debenhams won, congratulations!
