Freya at the MOBO Awards 2012

On Saturday night I was lucky enough to get a red carpet pass to the MOBO Awards in Liverpool at The Echo Arena with the fabulous Freya team!! Freya were backstage in the VIP area with their amazing travelling Freya Bra Booth handing out lingerie goody bags, bra fittings and underwear advice to the stars and their dancers. Talk about bras for the stars!

I have to say deciding what to wear was a slight drama – even in my role as a personal shopper for My Style Companion! I had been so busy with personal shopping appointments with clients that (as usual) I had no time to work out my own outfit (the hazards of being a personal shopper I’m afraid). However I pulled out my favourite AW12 McQ feather dress by Alexander McQueen and decided that was a winner – I wanted to go for a more relaxed urban ‘red carpet’ vibe rather than the usual glitz and glamour. However at the end of summer I wore this dress with nude peep toes and a nude blazer and realised that at minus three degrees, I may need something warmer for my feet and arms seeing as I would be standing next to the River Mersey!

Last week I was lucky enough to have been invited by Freya along to the MOBO Awards show in Glasgow, Scotland. My first thoughts were: ‘Crumbs, what am I going to wear?!’ and ‘How am I going to contain myself amongst all the celebs? It was a tough job but somebody had to do it and I had one of the most amazing star-studded and bass-fuelled nights of my life! I arrived in Bristol to catch my flight on Tuesday 4th and after some panic dress and clutch bag buying boarded my plane, full to the brim with nerves and dreading the inevitable delay or terrible even curse which seems to haunt me when I’m due someplace important at a certain time which leads to nothing but shredded nerves and smudged nail varnish (but that’s another story!) Amazingly, nothing dreadful or unfortunate happened on my travels to Glasgow (other than perhaps embarrassing myself when I got really excited by a man wearing a kilt in the airport *cringe*) and I found I had a few hours to do a bit more panic shopping in Glasgow city centre, paint my nails and watch the Alan Titchmarsh show in my hotel room. Nerves and excitement aside, I teetered on my stilettos to the SECC Arena in Glasgow, retrieved my press pass and hall ticket and marched past all the screaming fans to the red carpet area to get my Tweet on for Freya.

If you follow Freya on Twitter or Facebook you’ll know that the team were at the music awards backstage handing out goody bags to the stars including the likes of Jessie J, Dionne Bromfield and Fazer from NDubz (not one for Tulisa perhaps?).

I was lucky enough to have been invited along with the lovely Katie Wier from the Freya team to keep me company. Here are a couple of the celebs I spotted on the red carpet:
