Last week I had the fortune of attending the Brit Awards 2015 and the numerous after parties all competing to be the best party of the night.
The awards were incredible, yes I saw the Madonna fall however I think it showed how much of a true professional she was picking herself up and continuing full pelt with her performance.
The highlight of the evening had to be the raucous performance from Royal Blood, whose modesty when collecting their Best British Band award blew me away, i really think they don’t realise how much of an impact they’ve made to the British Music scene. They’ve just been announced for Reading and Leeds and will no doubt be added to loads of other bills and I cannot wait to see them doing what they do bets in a live environment.
Kanye’s performance had initially fallen flat for me however on reflection I think what he was trying to portray by inviting the UK’s biggest grime artists onto stage with him was a big message, and showing that support to artists breaking through from the underground music scene is honourable and a clever move.
On the night I was fortunate enough to wear a beautiful dress by up and coming Scottish Luxury designer Mairi McDonald. The dress was aptly named “The Joplin” and was an absolute beauty! The detail on the dress is unbelievable. Stunning Lace high neck and three-quarter sleeves, with a built-in bodice (so no need for a bra! whoop) and full skirt with netting and layers galore! My favourite part was the gorgeous button up back…mad me feel like a gothic Kate Middleton!

The after party gossip I’ll remain tight lipped about, however all I will say is that it resulted in a burst lip from dancing so hard and mis-judging how close my knee was to my face, and a failed attempt at trying to mount a lion statue…that is all.
To hear more Brits chat listen in to my radio show which took place the day after and made for a slightly worse for wear show, I apologise in advance.
