Attending the 2013 BRIT awards with Shopbop
Just when I thought life was going to slow down for a little bit, I get a call from the lovely ladies over at Shopbop. Fashion Week had just ended but obviously all London had to offer was just beginning. Shopbop were inviting me on an adventure to the 2013 BRIT awards at the O2, alongside some of the most fabulous women in fashion.
On Wednesday night around 20 of us gathered at Butler's Wharf in London to board our transportation to the BRIT awards. We weren't arriving by car. Oh no, that would be far too normal. This group was pulling up the O2 arena on a boat! That's right, ladies and gents, the high heeled crew boarded the HMS Shopbop for some bubbles, nibbles and a spectacular night view of London.
Upon arriving at the O2 we walked the long red carpet over the water and into the massive arena. Our seats couldn't have been better for what was probably one of the most incredible concerts I have had the honour in attending. Truly, this is more a concert than an awards show. Sure there are awards handed out, but everyone in the house is there to hear some of the best acts in the industry do what they do best... perform!
For the 2013 Brits, the lineup was second to none. Muse opened the show. From there we saw Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, One Direction and so many more perform. Honestly, it was musical talent overload. I sat with wonderful company as we fawned over the stars and dissected their fashion choices for the evening. I think the big head scratcher of the night was Lana Del Rey in a shirt dress that could have come from any high street outlet but was in fact a Chanel number. Why oh why? Oh well, there were plenty of other fantastic garments to keep our fashion appetites in check.
While we were all recovering from a rather intense fashion week, we didn't let our exhaustion slow us down any. We braved the cold and jumped in a car to hit the Warner Music after party at the Savoy.
Let's just say I'm still recovering from this night...
Thank you so much, Shopbop, for an amazing evening from start to finish. What a night to remember!
