Dame Edna Everage brought the glamour to Stella McCartneys annual Christmas lights switch-on yesterday no mean feat when your fellow attendees include Sienna Miller, Salma Hayek, Dame Judi Dench and Laura Carmichael.
The bespectacled legend whose farewell tour is playing at the nearby London Palladium addressed the crowd before lighting up Stellas Bruton Street boutique. Stella has made some outfits for me before, she quipped. Im not saying they were my favourites
She also nodded to Stellas famous stance on using only sustainable fabrics, joking, Tonight, Im wearing humanely culled acrylic.
The minute we have the lights go on, I know Christmas is about to begin, Stella told us.
Time to think about shopping
