Coffee and Heels Goes Out: H&M David Beckham Press Event

Yesterday a work contact invited me to the  press screening of H&M’s new David Beckham ad (directed by Guy Richie)  at London’s super-swanky Soho hotel and, well, I said yes obviously (carpe Diem! Carpe Beckhamem!), hoping that David would be there, catch a glimpse of me and fall head over heels in love. Just kidding, I already have my very own blond thirtysomething David . However, I got my butt out of my work-from-home PJs and into a lace dress and off I trotted. 

Every time I’m invited to a fancy fashion thing (which tends to happen, as I work in the industry) I feel like such an outsider. Everyone’s so stylish and chic and wearing this season’s Prada, while I remain a frizzy-haired weirdo in faux-leather shoes. And I’m always the only one who doesn’t know anyone. Still, at the end I always have fun. Everyone treats you like a queen just because you’re from a website or magazine, there’s always really pretty food which no-one ever eats (I used to be the only one laying into the cookies, but now that I’m vegan I find myself joining the calorie-counter team in a hunger strike) and champagne (now that, on the other hand, I’m always up for) and there’s almost always a goodie bag at the end. Who could say no to a goodie bag? Not me.

Here are some bits and pieces from H&M's lovely Valentine's Day collection:

And I told you there was cake:

and a goodie bag!

It's more of  a present for my boyfriend than for me - three pairs of David Beckham Bodywear boxers and meringues, which I can't eat as they're obviously not vegan, but they look cute!

…and the film itself…ladies, get ready to swoon and gentlemen, get ready to, well, feel inspired to work out!

  1. I have to admit that David Beckham does absolutely nothing for me, it is true. I can hear you screaming from here ;) But that does look like a very nice day out!


Speak your mind.
