Last night the fashion crowd headed to Stella's Bruton Street store to kick off the festive season in style. The Brit designer, dressed in her own lace-panelled leggings (they're top of our Chritsmas list) played host to an eclectic array of stars - Jools Holland, Pam Hogg, Peter Blake, Paul Whitehouse, Louise and Jamie Redknapp and Twiggy - and furnished the rest of us with a happy combination of champagne, biscuits shaped like Chirstmas trees and sleighs and foil-covered chocolate Santas.
Last year the lights were switched on by Peter Kay's formidable X-Factor star, Geraldine. This year it was the turn of Noel Fielding and Julian Barrett of the Mighty Boosh, dressed oh-so-stylishly in drag as a pair of old ladies. They were accompanied by their band, and quite literally stopped traffic with their performance before switching on the lights. Brilliant.
