Headline picture of the day for me is Shaznay Lewis and Nicole Appleton of All Saints. One of my all time favourite girl bands. As far as I’m concerned nothing comes close! Dig Nicole’s platforms!

This is a good event to get names that you don’t normally see on the celebrity event circuit, week in and week out. Some decent classic names that are the very pillars of the music industry along with more current stars that have been noticed by the Ivor Novello’s and who have decided to award accordingly.

A good mixture of candid and standard posed shots featuring names such as Brian May, Boy George, Bob Geldof , Labrinth, Aston Merrygold and more.

Gone with a candid shot of Pixie Lott and Oliver Cheshire looking the happy couple walking up the red carpet at this awards event.

The sun was out, so were the stars and of course so were the crowds Shooting from the crowds meant a wristband only admission which required an early Sunday rise of 5am.. My wristband was No88 which would guarantee a good spot pretty much which means a high chance of some good pictures. Last year they ran out of wristbands and I was lucky to get in.

Anybody that is anybody in the TV industry turns up at this event which covers all genres including soap, documentary, mini series, sport, comedy, drama, news and others. The fellowship gong is the coveted one reserved for those that have been in the industry for a considerable period of time and are highly respected as a result.

A good event for candid shots. All shots taken in front of the interview area which was a good spot for the more unusual shots. Grab the shots via the link  below.

The 2015 TRIC Awards were held today 10 March at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in Central London. Thought I’d take a look and see what is going on!

Picked a tough spot amongst the photogs to get shots of the more posed variety but was right on top of where the cars pulled up which could produce the odd cracking and different shot, which it did.  As long suffering regulars know, I’m more interested in the intimate and candid moment style shots. Just meant I had to scream like a banshee to get people to turn round when they were posing and look right down the end where I was which was tough to put it mildly.

Highlight for me was Laura Whitmore who has ever was “on the money” in fashion terms. The shot above with her “lips bag” did it for me on the day, she was a matter of  feet away and a cracking shot. If you look closely at this shot, hair just gently blowing in the wind, nail polish on display, bag on full view and legs crossed. She’s done this before hasn’t she!

I’m officially back early April but keep your eyes peeled for further sporadic updates. As always watch for further news on the Twitter @famefad

6 Maddy Hill: A chaotic Awards event held at DSTRKT in Soho produced some interesting red carpet arrivals of the more candid variety.

One to watch!

Delilah at London Fashion Week Day 1

Delilah at London Fashion Week Day 1

7. Delilah:  Music star Delilah is a regular at London Fashion Week and always manages to cause a stir when she arrives. This year was no exception when she turned up at Somerset House. Not strictly a red carpet event but she’s got the look that says otherwise and heads did turn en masse as a result. She achieved the desired result.

Margot Robbie arrives at the Harpers Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 2014 London

8 Margot Robbie: Yellow is a colour that you can either pull off or fail mserably. Margot on arrival on what was a miserable wet night, was a ray of sunshine and got the press photogs in a lather within a split second of arrival. She was the girl of the night and ticked all the right boxes.A  plunging neckline does help though?

Elizabeth Olsen at The Godzilla European  Premiere London  Arrival Photos

9. Elizabeth Olsen: Long flowing gowns need poise and grace to complete the effect and Elizabeth Olsen delivered the goods in style at the Godzilla premiere this year in London. Another star of the show on the night in a blue lacy number with matching shoes.

Daisy Bevan at The Two Faces of January Premiere London

11 Caroline Flack:  TV presenter Caroline Flack who recently won Strictly Come Dancing is a Red Carpet regular and knows what’s what and what works when it comes to creating a presence. It’s hard to find fault when it comes to red carpet fashion with this one hence her No11 billing. The photo above at this years Glamour Women of the Year Awards speaks volumes.

Kirsten Dunst at The Two Faces of January Premiere London

Kirsten Dunst at The Two Faces of January Premiere London

12 Kirsten Dunst:  Actress of quite long standing and highly respected in the film world, she is no stranger to film premieres and red carpet events. An all black number is a safe choice and never fails to create that showbiz wow factor

Sarah Jane Crawford  arrives at the Global Gift Gala Event in London

13. 13. Sarah Jane Crawford: TV presenter and new girl on the block Sarah Jane Crawford loves to use colour to creative effect and is not afraid to take a gamble on her red carpet dress choices. Here at the Global Gift Gala event in Mayfair, London the wow factor is definitely in play.

Lydia Bright at the 2014 TV Choice Awards London

Lydia Bright at the 2014 TV Choice Awards London

14 Lydia Bright: Lydia the reality TV star of TOWIE fame managed to make an impact on arrival at this years TV Choice Awards with this number and I would say was one of the Top 3 on the night in my opinion, all of which appear on this final 25 top list.

Florence Welch at the 2014 Ivor Novello Awards, London. Arrival Photos and Candids

15. Florence Welch: Music stars are not afraid to push boundaries as is often demonstrated at music awards events. Florence Welch here has opted for something completely different to your normal red carpet line up crowd and it works. She got top billing in the tabloid papers for her style and panache the following day

Diana Vickers at The 2014 Olivier Awards London

The Top 15 Amazing Selfie photos taken by myself of stars mingling with fans and doing the now infamous “Selfie”, some close up, some further away and some long range. A sort of outsiders view of the Selfie craze. Candid shots in the extreme but with a dash of posed. A recent phenonemon but politicians, world leaders and celebrities are now doing the Selfie amongst themselves, it doesn’t look like a passing craze, it’s here to stay!

Increasingly I take more of these shots as they do sell but it’s got to be something special capturing the heat of the moment as some of these fans have been waiting many hours or even days to meet their idol. A selfie is not easy to get by any means!

The best of 2014 in my opinion taken from a variety of locations but all in London. My favourite is the one at top, amazing backdrop, psycherdelic lighting and both the fan and the star are enjoying the moment, an important aspect of the Amazing Selfie Vanessa White of The Saturdays below doing a Selfie with a fan below is a very close second.

The British Fashionista Awards Part 3. The Top 15 -11 including Abbey Clancy, Pixie Lott, Kelly Brook, Rita Ora, Jessie J with in depth analysis why they are part of this Top 25 Fashionista List for 2014

Abbey Clancy and Celebrity Spotting London Fashion Week 13 September 2014

Abbey Clancy and Celebrity Spotting London Fashion Week 13 September 2014

No 11 Abbey Clancy: Class and style with ooodles of taste is the Abbey Clancy look but she’s not afraid to experiment and push the boundaries a little bit especially in the shades department and always causes a storm whether in casual or red carpet mode. Trying to think when she has been photographed not quite looking up to the mark.?……………Still thinking?

Pixie Lott and Celebrity spotting ITV Studios, Southbank London 11 July 2014

Pixie Lott and Celebrity spotting ITV Studios, Southbank London 11 July 2014

No 12 Pixie Lott: The master of very feminine and girly fashion looks and styles, her trademark is pastel colours, short skirts and killer heels which she works to devastating effect. She always causes a stir with the paparazzi and for good reason. Despite the softness to the Pixie look it’s very definite and the results can be surprisingly quite dramatic and heads do turn as a result. All of course delivered in an effortless style like she is not trying at all!

Kelly Brook arrives at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2014, London

Kelly Brook arrives at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards 2014, London

No13 Kelly Brook:  Kelly with her New Look associations and lingerie model fame will always bring something unmistakably Kelly to the fashion table no matter what. Difficult to pin down to a particular style she is plain colours one minute, floral the next and then off somewhere else with yet another look. She doesn’t follow the pack that’s for sure but she is a leader and is full of surprises but see her at a celebrity event and she’s always the star of the show no matter what!

No 14 Rita Ora. There is no mistaking the Rita Ora look, she’s individual, sassy, does her own thing and will push those fashion boundaries and  has enough confidence to pull it off where others would fail miserably. Maybe it’s her positive vibe that helps? She doesn’t always get it right though, but she comes bouncing right back getting the two thumbs up next time you see her. She’s a Kosovo girl and this number here screams that fact. She’s proud of her roots!

Jessie J and Celebrity spotting Central London on 23 September 2014

Jessie J and Celebrity spotting Central London on 23 September 2014

No 15 Jessie J. What fashionista list is complete without Jessie J. The warrior fashionista in the pack. Distinctive look and style, lover of the edgy with boots being her fave, a fearless fashionista not afraid to flash the flesh on stage. Can switch from monochrome to strong prime colours in the blink of an eye. she’s not a pastel girl this one, but more full on and in your face which you could say is her personality. She speaks her mind and this is reflected in her choice of attire. A no messing type and straight to the point!

Opening night of the 57th BFI London Film Festival took place tonight at the Odeon in Leicester Square and it was packed for this one.

Captain Phillips was the film having it’s premiere which stars Tom Hanks. Basically was on the front row where the cars turned up but it wasn’t my night and managed to get just two shots. I’ve taken better shots lets put it that way! Had in an incredibly good run on photos the last couple of weeks and just new a night like this was coming. Even asked his wife who came over if she could get him to come over. Never done that before! Saw other photos from people in the crowd and they didn’t even manage to get anything like these. Tom Hanks is closing the Film festival with another film in about a week and a half. So a second chance for some better shots then?

The 2013 Pride of Britain Awards were held last night at The Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair London. Huge arrival list for this event as you can imagine with celebrities from all walks of life.

Delay on publication of these photos due to a media request and the incredible amount of interest in these photos! Full length, portrait shots, close ups and candid moments. All shots taken from within the red carpet arrival staging area from the crowds. What I call “eye of the storm” shooting. Pushing, shoving, bits of paper in the air, clipboards, screaming and mass hysteria plus the rest. Buckle up and enjoy the ride is my motto.

Pixie Lott  grabs the headline in Part 1. Do I really need to explain why? What can I say……..blinding photo!

Due to the huge quantity of photos names will be added later. Photographic results below.

This was a blue carpet event with a very hectic arrivals considering its size. Flat out shooting for 1 hour! . Gallery below which was female star focused.

Gone with Dakota Blue Richards for the headline shot. She’s just a dream to take a picture of and looked on the money on the night…………..in my opinion. Not even in the film as far as I’m aware!
