Longchamp Flagship Store Opening

Longchamp Flagship Store Opening 14 Sept

Longchamp celebrated the opening of its London flagship store on Regent Street on Saturday evening, inviting a host of celebrity guests.

I was lucky enough to be invited and mingled with a host of celebrity guests across the three floors while being thoroughly entertained by Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, who were spinning the decks (see my pictures below).

Zoe Saldana: The beautiful actress, who is currently in London filming her next blockbuster ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’, looked effortless wearing a draped-front ivory silk blouse and shorts from Longchamp’s Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with a ‘Roseau Box’ clutch and taupe Louboutins. She was such a delight, happily posing for a picture for us.

Kate Moss: The model, who has a very strong connection with Longchamp having designed bags for the brand, was the one person who everyone wanted to see close up. She didn’t disappoint, wearing a sexy black keyhole romper with a unique whiplash leather belt, which she accessorized with a blue Kate Moss for Longchamp clutch for a pop of colour.

Alexa Chung: The DJ was in great spirits on the night, opting for a black vinyl Jonathan Saunders ‘Jemima’ bustier dress from the Fall 2013 collection to showcase her darker and sexier side, which she styled with a cute pair of houndstooth ankle-strap pumps. The ivory cardi was just for the red carpet.

Ashley Madekwe: I was very excited to finally meet the lovely actress who, like me, was working the crop-top trend at the event, wearing a black Paper London top with a caramel leather Temperley London skirt styled with her can’t-live-without Saint Laurent sandals and a cognac Longchamp ’3D’ clutch.

Coco Rocha: The current face of Longchamp wore a brightly coloured coral cap-sleeved Longchamp Spring 2014 dress with the brand’s ‘Roseau Box’ shoes and ‘Roseau Box’ clutch in metallic gold.

Zoe Kravitz: The actress worked a typically uber-cool look, with a white Alexander Wang for Balenciaga top breaking up the black and a Longchamp ‘More is More’ messenger bag slung over her shoulder.

Lily Cole: The model/actress wore a black top with Alexander McQueen leggings from the designer’s ‘Plato Atlantis’ Spring 2010 collection.

Pixie Geldof: The socialite wore a Antipodium Feline tapestry intersection coat worn over a dark blue top and blue jeans which she accessorized with a blue fold-over clutch and pink shoes.

Leigh Lezark: Following her attendance at the House of Holland Spring 2014 show earlier in the evening, the DJ wore a House of Holland Fall 2013 caramel sweater and purple wool skirt featuring colourful quirky embellishments.

    Ashley and FC make crop tops look fabulous. Gotta know who makes those sparkly pointy-toed pumps. Marriage looks good on Zoe. Love Pixie’s shoes and Leigh’s skirt. Looks like fun times!

    FC, you and Zoe Saldana looked fantastic. The only thing that prevented both of you from getting into an early BDOTW list is the clutch. I wish you both had opted for colourful ones.

  20. H September 16, 2013 at 15:38 #

    Wow, Zoe Saldaña looks gorgeous, incredible, and also Ashley and you met both of them, sweet!

    Now, as for you, you definitely looked great, you look like a model by the way, and keep posting pictures of you when you go to an event, I am sure you will be the one teaching Alexa Chung how to choose an outfit.

  21. Prudence September 16, 2013 at 20:23 #

    FC is hands down the best dressed here.

  22. KatieKate September 17, 2013 at 02:46 #

    How awesome for you, FC, to get to go rub elbows with some of your favorite celebs! And standing tot to toe with them style-wise. You should feel so good about yourself, and proud of your success!

    I thought you and Ashley were best dressed, followed by Zoe S. (BTW, I keep hearing she’s married???). Anyway, you look statuesque. And thank you for the pics, as you must know we live vicariously through your exciting, fashion and celeb-filled life! :-)
