Hi guys! First off- I did not meet/touch Ed Westwick! Noooo! Saaad times. However, I was very close to him and can confirm, he is even hotter in real life than on screen! You didn't think that is possible? It is! Omg his voice and cheekbones and everything, ohmagod he remains superbly hot, and now thanks to a Chalet Girl goodie bag, a big poster of him graces the living room wall of my student house, along with Ricky Whittle, JLS, some random naked mexican men on horses, and a very suggestive Ann Summers calender.
So here's some eye candy and gossip from the event; I started the day glueing my Miu Miu shoes on the train! Remember the gold bits on the back are actually rubbish plastic and snapped off again at London Fashion Week FW10? All good with superglue though!
I took my long time BFF Melissa so rushed across London and got ready super quick in her halls. I didn't have time for lashes but I did wear a full face of makeup and wore tights in the end as I didn't tan my legs enough. We got a taxi across London to Westfield and met the Dare and Clean and Clear ladies at a posh bar, and had a cocktail with Amy of Wolf Whistle! Melissa and I had to strut through Westfield in the middle of the day in our insanley high heels and teeny dresses to get there, too funny! We saw on the invitation (or 'ski pass') that the dress code was 'Chalet Chic', looool! Cocktail dress with ski boots? Platforms with a puffy all-in-one?!
The premiere wasn't a strictly red carpet affair as it is a very teen-appeal movie, so first was a performance from a band that no one knew, Livingston. They were OK? I didn't exactly listen because Melissa and I were too busy trying to secure a spot on the bar alongside the red carpet. We asked a man if we could slot in beside him and he said,' Umm I'm saving this space for my sister...' Haha he totally didn't have a sister!
The place was rammed with girls obviously all there for Ed. Who could blame them?! The red carpet ended in a circle infront of the stage so some hardcore fans could stand in the barriers right in the middle.
After Livingston (?) performed, the celebs started coming, first with the girlie star of the movie (Felicity Jones) who did an interview on stage with a guy from T4 I think? Liked her dress a lot!
That was all well and nice but oh ma lordy, next out was Ed! The nearby photographers started going mental and suddenly I could actually see Ed's face in the flesh!!
I may have shouted 'Eddd please marry meee!' as he walked sooo coolly to the stage and did his Q&A. I can honestly say I don't remember anything he said! I was just thinking 'omggg it's him!!'
However in this photo it is clear he saw me and thought 'That girl! I must find her, incredible!' Well Ed, it is I, feel free to contact me! Don't worry, I will send you lots of unsolicited fan mail just in case you have trouble tracking me down.
Then shock horror, he started signing autographs that were nowhere near our barrier, oh the horror! He did quite a good run of most barriers but we went down the red carpet before then, and he didn't visit the barrier we were along so phew!
But yes, we did get to walk the red carpet!! Here's Melissa and I with the lovely Grace from Dare, and I am thinking 'Omggg on a red carpet!' All the girls along the barriers were looking at us with major envy as we strutted down attempting to look important. Ed was off doing press interviews so we couldn't have sidled over and asked for a photo, but we did oggle!
OK I'll leave off the Ed worship for a bit. As we went upstairs, half of the cinema was roped off for the premiere so we got to watch the rest of the stars go down the red carpet and do their Q&As.
Tamsin Egerton's hair was soooo lush! Obviously a bunch of extensions but it looks incredible! [Edit- it's ALL her real hair, my mistake! It is unbelievably gorgeous!!] She is sooo gorgeous it's untrue! Someone needs to give her a big part in a movie pronto.
Soon it was time for the movie, and Melissa and I were about to stock up on sweets and popcorn when we discovered every seat in the theatre had a goody bag with some Clean & Clear stuff, vitamin water, a Sugar magazine (I love teen 'zines!), the above-mentioned Ed Westwick poster, and, some popcorn! Turns out that it was certainly the first viewing for most of the film production team and cast as they did some speeches at the front of the cinema and brought out the stars.
As Ed walked to his seat before the movie started, he was approximately two sets of shoulders away from me, omg!! Throughout the whole film I was thinking 'OMG, he's on the screen yet he's up there!' It made it very hard to concentrate!! But Chalet girl is so cute, very predictable and definitely not a film for adults, but my teen self laughed all the way through!
I wore the coral dress in the end but it actually ripped a little at the hem where my hand is!! It was £48 and I contacted Rare who were happy to give me a refund when I send it back, which is all good. I think Melissa is wearing a H&M dress and the most amazing Kurt Geiger shoes. After the film we hung around outside for aaaaages but as Ed entered in a secret door, he also left in a secret door so we did not get to talk to him. A girl we sat next to told us he talked to a few people in the cinema but blanked the rest and hurried on! Come on Ed, how do you expect to meet the girl of your dreams if you don't meet your fans and therefore eventually me!? We thanked the lovely Dare and Clean & Clear ladies and then went to Nandos, where we spotted the band from the film. I said hi and of course that I loooved the film haha; I think the band were Austrian though and there were no signs of an after party so we went on home!
All in all not a successful Ed meeting night but we felt super spesh at a real premiere on a real red carpet, and I got to see Ed in the flesh! You know I love an excuse to dress up too, even if I got ready in under an hour!xx
