LIL Collective at The Global Gift Gala. Getting ready Part 2!

You may have seen on social media, the girls from LIL Collective were invited along to showcase their live painting skills at the Global Gift Gala at the Corinthia Hotel.  The event, hosted by Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham, was attended by successful and celebrity guests.  Of course, it was a black-tie event, so we needed the perfect dress <panic>.

Luckily we were saved by the designer dress-hire, Chic by Choice.  They have a huge selection of designer dresses and evening gowns in different sizes, so we could pick the perfect outfit for the event.

Emma Block was keen to have a long dress for the event,  but being petite, she knows that not all dresses will work.  Chic by Choice gave her two options to try on in advance.  When neither of them were quite right, she was able to pick two more dresses.  In the end, she went for a gorgeous Self Portrait midi-dress.  

Willa Gebbie knew she didn't want anything black, or too sequinned.  This floor-length Matthew Williamson dress was a winner. 

The perfect outfits for the purple carpet.  A big thanks to Chic by Choice!

Before the event got underway, we took the opportunity to do quick little fashion illustrations of each other in our finest.
