Fashionista Barbie’s Friday Fashion Fix #2

What a busy week, first proper week back at work, my first event of 2013, and award season well and truly kicked off. We’ve had the People’s Choice Awards, the National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, as well as the Oscar 2013 nominations – and then there has been all the prep for the Golden Globe Awards which take place on Sunday. Red carpet has kind of taken over my life, which is what I love about the turn of the year!!!

Ted’s Finishing School:

Ted Baker, SS13, catwalk

As I said I went to my first event of the year, which is always the first event I go to, the Ted Baker away day where they invite a few bloggers to see their spring/summer 2013 collection. Each season the venue is incredible and this year was no different, with the theme Ted’ Finishing School, the catwalk space looked more like a theatre and we were all ready to be schooled. It was a fun show, and lots of lovely pieces will be rolling out soon in the shops. Plus we were treated to not one, but two Britain’s Next Top Model winners walking the show, as well as Ella from X Factor singing us a little tune!!!

I took a little video on my HTC One X of Ella singing to the final looks of the show, sound quality not amazing but you can see how great it all looked.
