Relive the best moments of Stylist Live LUXE
And a special thank you to everyone who came.
Stylist Live LUXE 2019 ended exactly two weeks ago, and we still can’t get over how much fun we had. From the brilliant new venue, inspiring brands and speakers to fashion shows, comedy performances and beauty treatments, this year’s show was definitely one to remember. Just in case you missed out, here are some of the most memorable moments from the VIP weekend.
THE AMAZING SPEAKERS
With a host of incredible speakers, we were left feeling inspired and ready to tackle 2020. Highlights included a rousing talk from author Philippa Perry; Elizabeth Day discussing failure and how to ensure it doesn’t define us; and Line of Duty star Vicky McClure’s hotly anticipated talk about authenticity with Stylist’s editor-in-chief Lisa Smosarski. Deborah Frances-White drew the event to a close with a powerful takeaway: “Rather than going into something thinking, ‘If I don’t get this, I’ve failed’, go into it saying that you’re going to give it a try.” Now to put all that knowledge into action.
THE GOODIE BAG & OTHER TREATS
Every guest received the VIP treatment this year, with free food, cocktails and surprises on offer throughout the event from brands including BLOOM Gin, Anna Mae’s and Blondies Kitchen. But the cherry on top of the beautifully iced cake was our ultimate goodie bag worth over £215, with gifts from Pixi, Huda Beauty, Elemis, Kiehl’s, Charles Worthington, Barry M, Tangle Teezer, Palmer’s, OFFBLAK, SportFX, Sukin, Living Proof, St Tropez, Benenox, Pronamel, Most Wanted Wines, Lily O’Brien’s and Dr Pawpaw. We also had endless beauty treatments, and with complimentary pampering available from a host of brands including The Body Shop, Moroccanoil, System Professional, OPI and BaByliss, we hope everyone left feeling like a million dollars.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS
We couldn’t have made all this happen without our brilliant sponsors. From Elie Saab bringing their beautiful herbarium workshop to NatWest introducing five brands from their Back Her Business initiative and Pronamel with their stunning flower display, they all brought the event to life. We also had fun photo opportunities at Instax’s stand and tasted decadent chocolate with Lily O’Brien’s. And, luckily for you, you still have a chance to get 20% off any OPI product on Amazon (USE CODE OPISAVE20); 20% off any System Professional product on Look Fantastic (USE CODE SPSAVE20); and a chance to win a luxury trip to Scotland for two. Finally, the Stylist Runway – supported by BaByliss with make-up looks delivered by Barry M – was absolutely *on point*. And let’s not forget our incredible charity partner Women for Women International, who sent all our heartfelt messages to women in war-torn countries.
A huge thank you to everyone who took time to fill out our feedback form, your thoughts and brilliant ideas really do matter to us and we can’t wait to implement it all in 2020.
