Stella McCartney switches on Christmas Lights with Celebs headed by ‘Ab Fab’s’ Eddie Monsoon

by Katie on November 29, 2011

This evening at Stella McCartney in Bruton Street, London was one of those nights you remember.  A grand evening of fun and friends and revelry.  

I debated madly what I should wear and relegated fur to the bin and uploaded cashmere and black as the ‘outfit de jour’ for Stella’s annual switching on of her Christmas lights…surely a more coveted invitation that that (lowly) Oxford or Regent Street. Tsk.  
The evening unfolded in wonder to the point where Kate Moss and her daughter were seated (literally) at my foot with Sir Paul and Nancy to my left as Edina Monsoon & Emma Bunton (in character) switched on the lights.  Yes, this was the annual Christmas lighting of the Stella McCartney, Bruton Street store in London, featuring Jennifer Saunders as her “Absolutely Fabulous” character Edina Monsoon . Ms Monsoon turned on the Christmas Lights at the Stella McCartney London store as her iconic character with ‘Sweetie Dahlings’ galore.  I’m telling you readers, I had vivid flashbacks to my LFPR days when she was a client and based ‘Ab Fab’ on those happenings…I could tell stories but that would cost…
Jennifer entertained the crowd, in full Edina regalia (featuring lots of gold, natch)  with a comedic sketch and was joined by ex-spice girl, Emma Bunton, reprising her role as Edina’s “client.”  

Guests at the event included; Stella McCartney and Alasdhair Willis, Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell, Sir Bob Geldof, Richard E Grant, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Pam Hogg, Dame Kelly Holmes, Sharleen Spiteri, Ms Dynamite, Laura Bailey, Marie Helvin, Mike Figgis, Lynn & Evelyn De Rothschild, Sascha Bailey, Christopher Malcolm, Helen Lederer, Sir Peter and Chrissy Blake, Nick Grimshaw, Chris Evans, Jay Camilleri, Mariella Frostrup, Kelly Hoppen, Jade Williams (Sunday Girl), Pete Tong and more.

The crowd all enjoyed treats by Fortnum & Mason such as mince pies, Christmas cookies, Charbonnel and Walker chocolates, roasted chestnuts, hot chocolate, champagne, mulled wine, Guinness and, of course, lots of champagne.

Merry Christmas!
