The cinderella dress

Me, Lucy and Lydia at the W Hotel after party

On Sunday night, I had the absolute honour of walking the red carpet at Joe Sugg and Caspar Lee's Hit The Road premiere. It was such a fun, magical night and so exciting for me as it was my first time on the red carpet. It's incredible how far youtube has come and I was so happy and proud to be part of it.


I've had a lot of tweets, and instagram/video comments asking about my dress and makeup on the night. I felt like an absolute princess in my dress so I really wanted to share it with you and write a blog post. My dress was a silver grey, open back, embroidered, floor length beauty from Chi Chi London. It was absolutely freezing but little did everyone know I was wearing woollen leggings underneath!  I adore the gorgeous open back, the stunning floral embroidery and the pretty semi sheer sleeves. I felt like a cross between Cinderella and Elsa, and it really is the perfect winter "dressy" dress. The glimpse of shoes you can see are some silver sparkly court shoes from New Look, which I chose because I find New Look shoes so comfortable and they have really decent heel heights- still high heels but not crazy sky high. 


My bag of choice was this absolutely gorgeous pale blue mini cross body bag by Carvela. It was the perfect colour to compliment the subtle icy blue tones in the dress, and also the perfect size, small enough to be a party bag, but still big enough to fit in my iPhone 6 plus and all the makeup I needed for touchups. Sadly I can't seem to find this online anymore which means it must be out of stock, but I've found a very similar Michael Kors one that I've linked at the bottom.


Speaking of makeup, I had an appointment booked at the Charlotte Tilbury counter in Selfridges to have my makeup done, but unfortunately as I had to wait for the dress to be delivered, I had to cancel the appointment. However, I was so happy with my makeup that I did myself, and it stayed on all night with not much need for touch ups apart from lipstick. 

For my base I used the YSL Touche Ã‰clat foundation, which gives the most beautiful dewy glow to the skin, but still has an amazing coverage. This is actually a press sample of the new  re-formulated product which is out early next year, and it's amazing as they've kept the dewiness but increased the coverage. I'm massively getting into strobing, and I'm obsessive about my highlighter. The highlighter I used is my current favourite- Benefit Watts Up. It honestly gives you the most stunning champagne glow. I topped this up with my Cinderella Coupe d'Chic iridescent powder for an extra bit of sparkle, and I also dusted this over my eyelids. Finally I used my YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in the shade nude beige, which is actually much more pale pink that sounds, and this lipstick is one of my favourites as it has the most creamy, moisturising feel but stays put all night. And I don't even need to mention the packaging, you have eyes. 


And finally I doused myself in YSL's (I am not sponsored by the way, just developing a deep, deep love) Black Opium eau de toilette. This perfume is my new obsession. It is the perfect combination of fresh and sexy, and is incredibly sophisticated but still with a very youthful feel. It was the perfect fragrance for the night, and to match my outfit.

I wish I could re live the night- if not just to wear this magical dress again! You can find links to all the products just underneath. Thank you for all your tweets on the night, you made me so so happy and really boosted my confidence.

All my love,

Freddy x
