When the five lucky winners arrived at our photo studios they were met with a scene straight off of a Christmas card; a log fireplace complete with hanging fairy lights, gigantic baubles and glowing candles made the perfect setting for their once in a lifetime photo shoot experience. Next Carol, Alison, Andria, Aline and Paula were whisked away to have their hair and make-up done by Team LBD’s finest make-up artists and hair stylists whilst they sipped on champagne, of course! Out emerged some rather gorgeous Christmas party looks that cried out for the perfect frock…and shoes..and jewellery…
Next the ladies were given the choice of a whole host of Christmas party dresses from our A/W12 collections and Team LBD stylish Francine Heath helped them choose the shoes and accessories to complete their look. Everyone was thrilled with their new looks and when the make-over was complete even the most camera shy of the group was ready for her close-up!
Once the last picture was taken we rewarded our competition winners with a sumptuous canapé and champagne dinner and settled down for a much needed rest where each told us what it mean to them to slip in to their designer dresses from Littleblackdress.co.uk after accomplishing their goals of a new healthier, slimmer body shape. Each lady loved their dresses so much we thought it would be a shame to see them part with theirs so we packed them off with their dream dress and a gorgeous goody bag complete with treats from Hotel Chocolat and Johnny Loves Rosie.
