The Lipsy VIP Awards were held last night Wednesday 29 May at the DSTRKT venue (don’t even ask) in Rupert St in Soho and quite a few Brit stars turned out for this   glitzy, celebrity-studded event which honours style icons with awards that recognise their influence on fashion and is sponsored by the Lipsy Fashion brand..Fashionista alert if ever there was one and hence my appearance.

Judging by the huge crowd turnout, this event will definitely be held again next year and for years to come.

So who was there? A real Brit Fest of stars from mainly TV and Music. Names such as Amelia Lily, Michelle Keegan, Mischa B, Amy Childs, Dionne Bromfield, Aston Merrygold, naming just a few from a very extensive guest list. A very hectic, stressful and chaotic event due to it being a small venue and the large crowds and guest list.

Amelia Lily grabs the headline in part 1 as she really went for it in the photo session and is a bit of a character and seemed to like my camera. Two rebels seeing a mirror image is what springs to mind. Would have been Michelle Keegan for the headline but could I get her to look in my direction……………..could I buggery!

Due to the fact I was closer  than even the press for the photos (we’re talking about 4 feet here) , there are absolutely no full length shots, just all portraits..

The 2013 Ivor Novello Awards were held yesterday afternoon at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane in London an event which traditionally honours hit writers from the world of rock and pop. Thought I’d take a look and see what was going down……if anything.

Emeli Sande and Calvin Harris seemed to dominate the headlines for this event which had a guest list including Alt-J, Ben Howard, Beverley Knight, Calvin Harris, Cerys Matthews, Gavin Rossdale, Geri Halliwell, Jake Bugg, Katy B, Liam Gallagher, Lianne La Havas, Lily Allen, Michelle Gayle, Natasha Khan, Noel Gallagher, Peter Gabriel, Randy Newman, Richard Jones, Sarah McDonald, Shaznay Lewis and not forgetting The Maccabees.

Passed on the arrivals for this event and thought why not try Departures for a change and see whats cooking.  Wrong move! Turned out that some paps thought “Yesssss this is the place to be” as well and it turned into be a bit of rugby match free for all. What fun? Maybe I should have gone to the slightly more civilised arrivals after all…… or maybe one of the other 3 events on that night far away somewhere else. Hmmmm?

Geri Halliwell seemed to cause absolute chaos when she left the event and she dominates the photo gallery.

The Sony Radio Academy Awards were held last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane in Central London. This event celebrates the best in radio and awards accordingly. Stars from all walks were here with a particularly strong showing from music. Robbie Williams and The Saturdays were billed as part of the live acts at the event (they arrived before I got there according to the video crew).

Managed to get shots of Cerys Matthews, Mylenne Klass, Caroline Flack, Tulisa Contostavlos, Dermot O’Leary and more.

Myleene Klass grabs the headline, she just seemed to have the sheer star power on the night and the shot above may be the only one that was taken of her getting out of the car from that position which was close.  Superb shot if I say so myself! Tulisa was also on the money firing on all cylinders with a new hair look….very nice indeed …..photo of her below. Some shots taken about 3 feet away.

The BAFTA TV Awards were held last night at the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank in Central London and the stars and the weather turned out for this one along with some Daleks.

Olivia Coleman was the headline picking up two gongs at the event and the weather was the other with “umbrellas” being one of the first words to spring to mind when describing this red carpet spectacular event. David Walliams came with a dog that looked very similar to Pudsey?

Taylor Swift was amongst  other music stars who descended on the 2013 Brit Awards which was held at the o2 Arena in North Greenwich in South London on Wednesday Night 20 February. Guest list included Jessie J, Emeli Sande and One Direction amongst many others.

A short  flying visit produced 3 photos of Taylor Swift on a windy night including one ultra close up taken from the VIP Arrivals area where the screaming fans were. This was about 50 metres from the main red carpet staging area . The ultra close up shot was a mere 3 feet away……….. what is called in the trade a “within kissing distance” shot.
