The Film InStyle party was the hottest ticket in town last night, with the likes of Nicola Roberts, Pixie Geldof, Gillian Anderson and the X Factor girls hitting Hotel InStyle (the Soho Sanctum Hotel re-branded for the night) to catch the premiere of exclusive fashion movies created by top designers Christian Louboutin, House of Holland, Diane von Furstenberg, Mulberry, Zac Posen, Paul Smith and Roberto Cavalli.
LBD-clad Nicola joined her pals Henry Holland and Pixie Geldof at the party, sponsored by Land Rover, where they took in a performance by Dionne Bromfield and a DJ set by Jameela Jamil while sipping on delectable Tanqueray cocktails. “I always like to support Henry in everything he does,” gushed Nicola. Pixie, who stars as a singer in Henry’s film added: “It was SO much fun working with him.”
Meanwhile, X Factor’s Little Mix, Amelia Lily and Mischa B caused a pap furore when they arrived with the show’s cameras. Glammed up to the max in an assortment of party-ready high street duds, the girls chatted excitedly about the weekend’s forthcoming show and even revealed exclusively who they’d like to duet with if they make it to the finals: Jessie J for Little Mix, Pink for Amelia Lily and Jennifer Hudson for Mischa B.
Although everyone was clad to perfection, including InStyle editrix Eilidh MacAskill in bespoke Osman, our fashion crush of the night had to be Gillian Anderson, star of the forthcoming Miss Havisham, who was breathtaking in a winter white 1970s Christian Dior frock and emerald drop earrings.
Other stars at the party included Diana Vickers, The Only Way is Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh, shoe designer Christian Louboutin, stylist Grace Woodward, Sunday Girl, Alice Temperley and Jameela Jamil.
