Denim and Diamonds are a girls best friend

Taking inspiration from this season’s hottest combo, the Denim and Diamonds charity fashion show saw brands from M&S to Vivienne Westwood showcasing their latest collections at the Trafford Centre.

From the red carpet entrance and champagne reception to the topless male dancers, the show’s organisers certainly gave their guests 'a little bit extra'.

The Trafford Centre’s Great Hall was packed with ladies (and a few men) in their finest evening attire, all there to support The New Children’s Hospital Appeal.

Many youngsters and fashionistas alike sported the 80’s trend, with a fair few padded shoulders spotted in the crowd. Those who wore it the first time round opted for elegance with a modern edge, a shift dress with towering heels, or a blouse cinched in at the waist.

Whilst some were sipping on Diamond Champagne cocktail, others were getting their make-up touched up by experts from Selfridges' beauty hall, getting themselves ready for the onslaught of glamour to come.

Red Hot Strings violin duo entertained and the dance group were fantastic, although a few of the audience did get distracted from the ensembles when the topless male dancers performed alongside the models.

The highlight of the evening had to be the Vivienne Westwood set.The designer’s show stopping and unique pieces were amazing against the backdrop of pyrotechnics. See the gallery below for some of the fabulous looks from the night, both on and off the catwalk....
