Last night saw some of the most glamorous names in the worlds of beauty, health and sport descend upon Covent Garden’s Piazza, for a party hosted by Chanel celebrating Get the Gloss and the official unveiling of (drumroll please) Gloss World!
With the generously rum-infused Jax Coco cocktails flowing, the likes of Olympic golden girl Victoria Pendleton, A-list hair stylist George Northwood , style blogger Peony Lim, model Evangeline Ling, Wonderland magazine Fashion Editor Julia Sarr-Jamois and BeautyMART’s Anna-Marie Solowij (to name but a few!) were all spotted rubbing shoulders, as guests were treated to the most elegant of summer eves in the decadent surroundings of the beauty haven that is Chanel’s Covent Garden Boutique.
For only the finest of makeovers and make-up touch-ups, Chanel Ambassadors Kay Montano and Mary Greenwell were both on hand to create looks inspired by their hugely successful videos featured on GTG TV.
Party-goers were also pampered to the very best of nail shapes and paints from prep, primp and polish pros Marian Newman and Sophy Robson , with the added bonus of being able to choose from a selection of specially created GTG-inspired nail art too.
As for the food, in true Gloss style only the healthiest of summer party menus was on offer courtesy of a selection of Purelosophy health drinks and a delicious array of sumptuous waistline-conscience (it is bikini season after all) canapés created by Rocket and GTG Expert and nutrition supremo Amelia Freer .
The night was a roaring success and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came along to make it such a fantastic evening. With the official launch of Gloss World, it’s an extremely exciting time for us as we continue to create new and exciting ways to bridge the gap between beauty experts and beauty fans, providing only the very best health and beauty advice only a click away.
