Pippa Middleton


From all accounts of Pippa Middleton's weekend wedding to James Matthews, the night was an affair to remember. According to royal insiders, every detail of their ceremony and reception was choreographed to a T -- and that, not surprisingly, included the seating chart. However, instead of seating couples next to one another, as is customary, Pippa and James had everyone spread out. And this of course means that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat separately at the reception. That's a little awkward for Meghan, no?

Sources told the Telegraph that Pippa arranged the seating chart for the reception so that every couple sat apart. Apparently, separating couples at formal events, weddings in particular, is an age-old rule people once followed, but it's not usually implemented at modern events. Pippa and James are one of the exceptions, obviously.

On the one hand, it's a nice notion to separate couples, as it forces everyone to mix and mingle with people they otherwise wouldn't. But it may be better served for more intimate events, like dinner parties. There probably were many people there -- like Meghan -- who really only knew the person they came with.

Of course, it's doubtful that this was sprung on Harry and Meghan when they walked into the reception, so surely they were prepared. But still. Definitely makes things slightly awkward -- especially when Meghan was thee wedding guest everyone has been talking about.

There was a satin waist band with beaded appliqués, a full tulle skirt that ended in a scalloped lace border and chapel train. She carried a daisy nosegay.

After a honeymoon to Disney, the couple will be completing their work contracts with Harnett County School System and Rite Aid.

Kim Kardashian West's assistant missed her wedding


Kim Kardashian West's former assistant Stephanie Shepherd didn't get to watch her wedding ceremony because she was "busy filming".

Stephanie - who was recently promoted to Chief Operating Officer of Kardashian West Brands, after previously serving as Kim's assistant - has revealed she missed brunette beauty's marriage to rap star Kanye West in Florence, Italy, in May 2014 because she was trying to capture footage for 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

Recalling her own memories of the romantic occasion, she shared: "I didn't even get to watch the ceremony because I was also filming - I often producer-cam the more personal moments for the show, when they don't want full-on cameras around - so I was filming everyone getting ready.

"And then Caitlyn lost her suit, so I had to locate it; all the girls are getting ready, we're getting Kim together, we're in this castle; Kanye is down rearranging the floral arrangements and all this stuff, all while I'm trying to film."

Kim currently employs a personal assistant, a house assistant and two nannies, but when Stephanie started working for the reality TV star back in 2013, she was her only full-time member of staff.

Stephanie has admitted to being rushed off her feet trying to arrange Kim's jet-set lifestyle - especially after the arrival of Kim's daughter North in June 2013.

She told Refinery29: "I was doing her whole schedule, doing her laundry, booking travel, putting the stroller together and all of these things. But I wasn't nervous. I was just excited, always staying longer than I needed because I was trying to prove myself - and then North came early!

"I was a brand new assistant who had no idea what to do with a baby, but we all moved into Kris' house, and she was the one who made it all feel OK and moved mountains for us."

Selena Gomez simply can’t get enough of her boyfriend, The Weeknd.

According to reports, while many may have assumed that Selena Gomez’s relationship with The Weeknd was just an opportunity to boost her Hollywood reputation, just in time for the release of her new music, sources say that this romance is, in fact, the real deal.

Hollywood Life notes that things are definitely turning serious between the two. They have exited the dating stage and are fully committed to being together for as long as possible. As of right now, Selena Gomez can’t stand being away from her beau for more than a week.

When the “Starboy” singer is on tour, Selena Gomez reportedly finds it hard not to follow her man along, but due to her work commitments to finish recording her forthcoming album in Los Angeles, she has often found herself being stuck in sunny California, having to wait for weeks to see The Weeknd again.

Sources reveal that Selena Gomez more or less knows at this given point that she doesn’t want to spend her life with anybody else but the 27-year-old, stressing that she shares a bond with him that she hasn’t shared with any of the men she’s dated in the past.

As one insider puts it, the more Selena Gomez learns about her beau, the more in love she falls with him. They can talk for hours and Selena will never find herself uninterested in the conversation — she’s totally obsessed with everything about The Weeknd, and that’s enough to assure her that he’s the one.

“It’s getting better and better between Selena and Abe each and every day,” the insider explains. “As they learn more about each other their bond and love grows, Selena says she has to pinch herself sometimes, to check that she’s not dreaming!”

Abe loves absolutely everything about Selena — her beauty, talent, intelligence, her body — but he says his two favorite things about Selena are her smile, which makes him weak at the knees, and her heart. He loves how caring and sweet she is, and how generous and kind she is to her fans, friends, and family.”The Weeknd’s family has embraced Selena Gomez with open arms, with sources claiming that everybody around the couple is really happy for them. They make a great pairing and have proven to their family members that they are not only committed to one another but strongly believe their romance will last for a very long time.

It was just two months back when it was rumored that Selena Gomez had been telling pals she was certain that she’d eventually walk down the aisle and marry The Weeknd. Though she had never said when she would like for it to happen, spending the rest of her life and settling down with the man that’s changed her entire life is definitely a plan for Selena Gomez.

Selena Gomez and the “I Feel It Coming” artist started seeing each other back in December, according to reports, which was just weeks after the former Disney Channel star had checked out of rehab after successfully completing her intensive program, Us Weekly reports.

Selena reportedly credits The Weeknd for helping her stay on the right path and accepting her flaws.

Again, Selena Gomez has never addressed rumors concerning alleged plans that she will marry The Weeknd — fans will have to wait and see whether the singer will talk about the subject matter in due time.

Do you think Selena Gomez and her beau will end up tying the knot?

Zendaya's Stylist on the 'Spider-Man


Before hitting the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, singer-actress Zendaya showed off her smooth dance moves to Bruno Mars' infectious track “24K Magic” on Lip Sync Battle with Spider-Man: Homecoming costar Tom Holland. However, once she arrived on the 26th annual ceremony’s red carpet, her sheer, bohemian chic, embellished gown with loose-fitting bell sleeves stole the show. Guiding her fashion trajectory from fresh-faced Disney starlet to a full-fledged style star -- she recently fronted Dolce & Gabanna’s Spring 2017 campaign -- is self-proclaimed “image architect” Law Roach.

Roach, who recently graced the cover of The Hollywood Reporter alongside Zendaya and fellow client Celine Dion (he also styles Ariana Grande), exclusively talked with Billboard about Zendaya’s stylish red carpet look, receiving sartorial love from Rihanna and what it really takes to launch a clothing line below.

You and Zendaya first met through a client of your store Deliciously Vintage when she was 15. Now that it’s been five years of working together, tell us how Zendaya’s style has evolved over time under your guidance.

Well, I think we both evolved together. She has no fears when it comes to fashion, and it allows us just to try things -- different hair and makeup looks -- and do things that are definitely on trend and not follow the rules. I call her my style soulmate, and our relationship is perfection. I can literally bring a rack of 20 things, and I’ll have my favorite nestled in the middle somewhere, and she’ll come right back to it and say, ‘I love this one.’ Nine times out of 10 that always happens. And now everything we do is just second nature to us. They way we think, the ideas we both have, it’s almost kinda scary in a (great) way.

What about her everyday style compared to her red carpet looks?

Total opposite. She’s such a tomboy and is just so happy in sweats and sneakers. I’m the one pushing for her to wear sunglasses with a nice bag in the airport in case she gets papped. And she’ll say, ‘Nobody cares about that.’ That part of her is the core of who she is, although for the red carpet she loves to be that other girl that’s super glamorous who people love.

Speaking of red carpet, what is your favorite Zendaya red carpet moment of all time?

Well, they’re all kind of like my babies and it’s hard to love one more than the other. My top three would be The Met last year with Michael Kors where she wore a liquid, fun gold dress with the bowl cut and heavy eye [makeup]. I’m obsessed with that look, and she just looked unreal to me. I also loved the [2015] Oscars -- the controversial look about her faux dreads and Vivienne Westwood bridal gown -- both of those were really special to me. My third favorite is when she wore a wore a cropped bustier with a skirt and this little petite, army green colored baseball cap to the BMI Awards. This was before the whole athleisure thing came around, and now you see Chanel doing baseball caps with A-line wedding dresses.

You two also work on her wardrobe line Daya by Zendaya. What has that adventure been like?

It’s tough when you don’t just put your name on something. You look at every single design and sketch, you take all the phone calls and go to all the meetings, it’s a learning process. We both love fashion, but when you’re actually producing something it’s a whole other level, and we have to find the time to juggle it all. For us, working as partners, we compromise. If she doesn't like a shirt that I love, she’ll say, 'Okay, I'll keep that shirt for these pants.’ If you're going to have your hands in it, then you'll have to work hard for that. We’re enjoying it and growing and learning together; it's another facet of what we do.

What excites her the most stylewise?

She's just a character, a chameleon on the carpet, that it’s almost like ‘who are we going to do today.’ Like this year’s Met was an entirely different girl from last year’s Met. That’s what makes her excited because there’s no limit. When you step into something, and you don’t have any concern about what people are going to say the next day, then you’re so free and able to fly as high as you can. And I think that’s what excites us both about when we put on clothes and she steps on that carpet.

Rihanna crowned Zendaya the 'brown goddess' of the Met Gala on Instagram. Did you see that?

Yes! We both died. It was all about the full look: her orange lip, the [Dolce & Gabbana tropical parrot] dress, her natural hair. And that’s kind of what I do when I go in, and for me, I have to control the whole look. I can’t just bring the dress, although sometimes we work with hair stylists and makeup artists, it’s always a vision. Once we picked the gown, I dreamt about that makeup and hair, and looked at all the Comme des Garcons past runway shows and saw what she [designer Rei Kawakubo] did with the hair. The hair was always a little bit avant-garde, not such a traditionally pretty look, you know what I mean? It was a combination of both of those things, and for us, it was always about the full look.

Is that why you call yourself an image architect rather than a stylist?

Yes, absolutely. I'm good at starting from scratch and love to work with girls who haven't fully developed their fashion blueprint or someone who has a certain way that people see them in the world of fashion. Like Celine [Dion], people hadn’t thought of her as a fashion girl, but when I met her, I was like, 'Oh no, this woman knows [style] and has an incredible archive.' So I created another blueprint for her so that she can be looked at a different way and get invited to the Met Gala [where she wore custom Versace] and do all of these other things in the world of fashion that she hasn’t been privy to because nobody really knew that a.) That’s what she wanted to do or b.) She was capable of doing it.

That’s how the image architect thing comes in. I want to work with people so well, where you could say, 'Oh shit, she’s working Law. I knew something had changed, look at her now.' My thing is that we do a lot of thinking and research. For us, it's very cerebral. It's not just ‘Oh, well that’s pretty, let's go with that.’ And of course I'm not saying any other stylist does that, I don't know what their process is, but our process is really thought out.

So what is Zendaya wearing tonight for the MTV Movie & TV Awards?

Tonight she's wearing a stunning piece from Zuhair Murad Couture's Fall-Winter 2016/2017 collection. The ankle-length strapless wedding dress is covered in beautiful 3D appliqués and embellishments and has a plunging neckline. Her bronze open-toe heels with an ankle strap are from Le Silla.

A wedding giveaway with a military twist


When she was 12 years old, Wanda Jones Cooper, now 66, sat on her Granny Jones' front porch in rural Marion County and studied a pine-covered hill at the back of the family farm.

"I want that hill," Wanda told her grandmother, gesturing at the rise in the distance.

"Baby, a rabbit can't even get through over there," her grandmother said, pointing out the thick underbrush.

"I know," Wanda said. "But I want it anyway. It looks kind of like a Christmas present that hasn't been opened yet."

Now, 54 years later, Cooper lives in a brick

house on top of the hill that looks down at the old farmhouse below.

Related: blue bridesmaid dresses

"I've always known where home was," she said wistfully this week, gazing out over the fields where she used to ride a tractor with her grandfather.

In the fullness of time, little Wanda grew up, built the house on the hill and raised a family on what has become known as the Old Jones Farm, which has been in her family since 1898.

The property is located about 30 miles from Chattanooga near Jasper, Tenn. The tall pines on Wanda's hill were significantly thinned in 2011 by a tornado that also ripped the roof off the barn and scattered the horses.

In 2014, Cooper had a vision. She dabbled in making wedding cakes, but found herself loading up her Lincoln SUV to deliver them to far-flung wedding locations such as Valley Head, Ala., and Beersheba Springs, Tenn. Often, the weddings were for young couples who actually live near her home in Marion County.

Cooper thought: Why not convert the family farm into a wedding venue so these people could stay home? More and more couples were skipping traditional church weddings for rustic outdoor locations.

Soon, Cooper remodeled and decorated the barn into a dressing area, kitchen and dance floor. She relocated her horses and built a hillside amphitheater that seats 350. Three years into the project, she is hosting about 30 paid weddings a year.

Last spring, she decided, in a nod to patriotism, to give away a wedding to a deserving military couple. When word spread on Facebook, people in the area stepped forward to donate money, labor and merchandise to the cause.

"The military is my soft spot," Cooper explains. "The whole community volunteered. We had a photographer, a caterer and a hairdresser."

The group chose a Navy couple with kids who wanted to renew their vows after 14 years of marriage.

Brandy Ledesma, a native of Jasper, says she and her husband, Danny, have both seen active duty in the military, and that coming to her hometown to renew their vows was special.

"It meant a lot," she said. "Everyone was so kind and welcoming. And, even though I had just met Wanda, it seemed like I had known her forever."

Later, at the suggestion of Cooper's daughter, the volunteer group decided to widen the circle of winning couples and ended up performing five weddings in two days.

This year, Cooper says she plans to scale back to one wedding. But it will be an excellent affair with a color guard and a uniformed veteran leading the pledge to the flag.

In just one year, Cooper has already banked a bushel of memories.

Thinking back on last summer, she remembers Ledesma jumping up and down and screaming when she found out she'd won.

Another bride trembled and wept with joy when Cooper found her a second-hand wedding dress. Then, there was the wounded male veteran who hugged her tightly and whispered, "You'll never know what this means to us."

Cooper gets a little misty herself telling these stories.

"This is my heart," she says, gesturing around the farm.

If that 12-year-old girl in 1962 could have seen what would eventually happen on her distant hilltop, she would have been pleased.

Consider the "Christmas present" opened.

The Best Bridesmaid EVER


It’s an honour being asked to be your best friend’s Maid of Honour. The flowers, the planning, dress shopping and making wedding decorations – it can feel like a full-time job! There are so many things that can happen in the run up to the big day, that any bride will need a right-hand gal to help keep things running smoothly.

Recently crowned Nation’s Favourite Bridesmaid (voted by Red7 readers), we asked 26-year-old Jessica Greener, to tell us exactly what it takes to rule the roost when it comes to being an amazing chief hen.

Personalise the party

Make every event personalised to the bride. It’s so important to plan a hen party that reflects the personality of your friend getting married. My friend Lauren wanted your typical hen do – with all of the cheesy whistles and sashes. On the other hand, Nicole loved that we planned a festival-themed celebration to mirror where she met her husband to be!

Related: plus size bridesmaid dresses

Budget, budget, budget!

The biggest challenge when planning a hen party is the financial element. The party has to be special for the bride, but equally you never want to out price it for the rest of the hen group. Set the budget out clearly and save money where possible. The girls always take the mick out of me for the spreadsheets that I manage hen parties from!

Jump straight in

The beginning stages of all wedding plans are super fun and exciting. This is when you and your bestie can pour over wedding magazines, discuss theme colours and the finer details of how her dream day should go. Lend a helping hand where you can – your mate will thank you for it!

Get crafty!

Pinterest is like a bridal bible when it comes to discovering cute centre pieces, bunting and creative name settings. Cut back on costs by making things yourself. I once made a photo booth for a hen party from a decorated cardboard box – looked great and saved the hens loads of cash!

Honesty is the best policy

For most brides, the dress is the all-important element of the wedding (apart from the ‘I do’ bit!), so it’s got to be perfect. It’s your duty as a bridesmaid to be completely honest when it comes to the style of the dress. If the shape or material isn’t working for the bride, tell her. The perfect dress is out there, you just have to find it together.

Be there for her

Planning a wedding can be stressful. There is so much to organise that sometimes your best friend might just need to have a proper heart-to-heart. Whatever she needs, be that support. She might just need a chin-wag over a cuppa!

Stay cool, calm and collected

I’m a self-proclaimed ‘bridesmaidzilla’, but it’s important to keep your cool throughout the planning process, especially on the big day itself. Whatever happens in the run up to the wedding, protect the bride from any unnecessary stresses.

Come prepared

Wardrobe malfunctions happen. Full Stop. Hopefully not with THE dress, but you never know. Bring a needle and white thread just in case! You don’t want to have to scramble for a sewing kit at a local supermarket whilst wearing your full wedding attire…

Top up the Prosecco

Every bride gets the jitters - it’s perfectly natural. On the morning of the wedding, keep the champers topped up. It will go down a treat to sooth any pre-wedding nerves and will help the wedding party feel relaxed and excited before the harps begin to play. Just don’t go overboard.

Enjoy it!

How many opportunities do you get to celebrate such a lovely day with your best friend!? Enjoy the ride. Yes, there will be lots to do, but there’s so much to look forward to as you help plan your best friend’s beautiful day.

Wedding and crawfish season in full swing


What a crazy couple of days it has been. I’m back to partying like I’m 21 years old, and let’s just say I might be able to party like that but the next day it isn’t a quick rebound like it used to be! Everything is swollen and hurts. This past weekend I somehow managed to stay out until 4 a.m., then decided I should have Sunday Funday and drink all day. Let’s just say those two make for a bad Monday.

But no worries, guys, I got it together enough to put together this week’s gossip! Enjoy!

Crawfish coma

Now that Lent has ended, crawfish season is in full swing! Once again, the Exploreum’s Junior Advisory Board hosted its annual Crawfish in the Courtyard last week. The weather was beautiful, the crawfish were delish and the beer was cold! Each year the board hosts the all-you-can-eat crawfish event to raise money for the Discover Science Program, and every year it is a hit!

My spy said this year’s event ran a lot more smoothly than last year’s, with crawfish pre-bagged and ready to be eaten — and they were! One thousand pounds of crawfish were consumed and everyone was talking about how good they were! The crawfish were so good that Sean Sullivan of FM Talk consumed more than 70 crawfish in three minutes’ time, winning the crawfish eating contest once again and, of course, bragging rights!

Related: green bridesmaid dresses

WKSJ’s Shelby Mitchell didn’t do quite as well in the crawfish eating contest as she was only able to finish a few in the given time. My spy said she did seem to finally get the hang of it though. Practice makes perfect, Shelby! Perhaps she can make a comeback next year.

I was also informed people were wearing gloves while eating crawfish. And the gloves were not provided, so this means multiple people brought their own gloves to wear while eating crawfish. Maybe I am the strange one, but I have never eaten crawfish with gloves on. Though there might be something to it, as no one wants gross stinky hands! But still.

Food for the stars

I don’t know what it is about celebrities and the Royal Scam, but there must be some secret website or code they all speak so that when they’re in Mobile they know to visit the Royal Street eaterie! Once again another celebrity ordered up from the Royal Scam. This one didn’t get carded like Haley Joel Osment did, but he did have a special request.

Last Wednesday night Bob Weir of Grateful Dead fame played at the Saenger and Boozie hears it was an awesome show! Before the show he requested a meal from the Royal Scam, and while it was on the lighter side it sounded delish! My spy said he requested salmon poke, pickled cucumbers, pickled ginger and a side of Sriracha. Move over, tuna martini, we want the salmon poke like Bob! We hear Mr. Weir was very “grateful” that the Scam could accommodate his special request.

What a wedding

It’s wedding season! This past Saturday night there was a wedding at almost every event venue Mobile has to offer. With so many weddings going on, one of Boozie’s spies said she got confused about which wedding was which, and ran out on the dance floor ready to party when she realized she didn’t know anyone and was at the wrong wedding! The one she was supposed to be attending was a block over. Oops!

The wedding everyone’s talking about was at the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion. Boozie had multiple people tell her they drove by a few times looking. I was told people even put on their hazard lights so they could slow down and get a better look! And no wonder they wanted to get a better look, everything was beautiful! The Bragg-Mitchell’s lawn was spaced with tents and lights cascading down from the trees. Apparently it looked like a picture from a magazine.

Boozie had a spy in attendance who said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been invited to. They also mentioned the food was amazing and the drinks flowed like rivers! Her favorite part was ending the night with Chrissy’s (aka adult) milkshakes, Dew Drop hot dogs and beignets! Umm yumm!

Sh*t happens

My Flora-Bama spy was back at it again this weekend but this time with some stinky news. While in the ladies room, she began to smell something very foul… Once out of the stall she noticed a lady skipping the line because she’d had an accident! Not just a little tee tee accident but a messy one. I’ll keep it as clean as possible but think poop down to her shoes. Yikes.

I feel anyone in that situation would run down to the gift shop, buy some clothes and get the heck out of there! But not this lady. Instead she ran down to the dance floor and resumed her partying. Can’t stop, won’t stop!

Well, kids, that’s all I’ve got this week. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or just some plain ol’ crawfish lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!

Binky Felstead is truly radiant in boho white mini dress


She is fast approaching the birth of her first child with boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson.

And Binky Felstead gathered her friends and family together on Sunday as she hosted a baby shower in London, to celebrate her exciting news.

The Made In Chelsea star, 26, looked every inch the glowing mother-to-be in a chic white lace mini dress, which skimmed her ever-growing bump, as she cosied up to her on/off beau, 27, inside the bash.

The brunette, who announced she was expecting her first child four months ago, looked truly radiant as she headed into the party with her nearest and dearest.

Proving her style has not faltered in pregnancy, Binky opted for a soft white mini dress, which was both sophisticated and sexy with its low plunging neckline, fastened with small white buttons.

Falling into a chic lace bodice and sleeves, the frock then maintained its boho style by cascading into a soft linen skirt, which skimmed her blossoming stomach.

Hot mama! Pregnant Binky Felstead gathered her friends and family together on Sunday as she hosted a baby shower in London, to celebrate her exciting news

Cutting off high at her thigh, the E4 star then left her svelte legs on show - which she lengthened further with a classy pair of nude court shoes.

Tying her outfit together with a quilted shoulder bag and oversized cat-eye sunglasses, the beauty looked effortlessly glamorous as she embarked on the undoubtedly emotional day with her nearest and dearest.


First posing for photos against a wall of stunning white roses, Binky spent the rest of her afternoon happily greeting her guests - who showered her with gifts for her new arrival.

After accepting an array of adorable baby clothes and toys for the tot, who she announced was a girl last month, the brunette was then seen cuddling up to boyfriend JP in a tender moment at the exciting event.

Clad in a simple grey T-shirt and black jeans, the hunk kept all eyes on the mother-to-be as he pulled her in for a sweet embrace, caressing her bump as he did so.

The pair had already hosted a smaller-scale baby shower on Made In Chelsea last month, in order to announce the sex of their tot to their co-stars.

Binky announced she was pregnant in January - causing a stir among fans, as she was not officially dating JP, the baby's father, at the time.

However, the pair have since admitted that the exciting news has only brought them closer, and they are now looking forward to the next chapter of their journey together.

Binky told MailOnline last month: 'We are beyond the boyfriend and girlfriend thing.'

'A lot of people automatically thought that the baby could be a bad thing for our relationship, and that if we got together again it was just for the baby.

'But we have always loved each other. The love was never gone.'

Addressing their messy split which played out on the previous series of the E4 show, she continued: 'When we broke up last year, it was only a couple of weeks before we found out about me being pregnant. And for me, those two weeks showed me that I’ve always missed him.'

The happy couple were joined for their celebrations by a number of their close friends, and familiar faces from the show.

First leading the glamour was Louise Thompson, who embraced the gloriously sunny weather in a thigh-skimming summer dress.

The brunette, 27, showed off her enviably tanned and toned legs in the soft white mini dress, patterned with vibrant yellow lemons all over.

Giving her feminine look a grungier edge however, she teamed the frock with an oversized denim jacket - which was embroidered with sporty team logos and cartoon stars across the front.

She added height to her petite frame with sky-high raffia wedges of blue and grey, and accessorised with a bold leopard print rucksack in a chic finishing touch.

Adding a plethora of tribal jewellery and retro rectangular sunglasses, the fitness fanatic oozed glamour as she headed in to support her close friend Binky - who she has known since filming the very first season of Made In Chelsea back in 2011.

Louise arrived at the bash alongside sister duo Lucy and Tiffany Watson, who mirrored Binky's style by opting for boho-inspired ensembles.

Lucy, who left the London-based reality show in September, showed off her famously slender figure in a black and white paisley mini skirt, paired with a pussy bow blouse.

Keeping co-oridnated throughout, she layered a thin black duster coat on top and accessorised with black sandals, adorned with flowers across the toe.

Meanwhile her blonde sibling, 23, slipped her slim frame into a white lace mini dress, which she layered beneath a quirky suede biker jacket of summery beige.

Arriving not long after was Stephanie Pratt, who certainly turned heads as she went braless in a metallic gold maxi dress.

The LA native gave a saucy flash of her cleavage in the ruched dress, which plunged into a daringly low halter neckline.

Cinching in at her petite waist with a straw belt, the high-shine number then fell into soft pleats all the way to the floor - which blew behind her as she headed inside.

The blonde kept her standout look casual with silver trainers and a bright red bag, for a splash of colour, as she arrived at the lavish bash laden with gifts for her friend.

Georgia Toffolo also made a glamorous arrival in a eye-wateringly short chiffon dress, patterned with pretty white butterflies.

Remaining demure with a high round neck and long sleeves, the frock then upped the sex appeal by cinching in at her middle, to emphasise her slim figure, before cutting off high at her thigh to flash her leggy figure to all.

Leaving her hair in her trademark bouncy waves and adding minimal make-up, the blonde, who goes by 'Toff' on the show, proved her natural beauty as she arrived to celebrate with Binky.

Fashionista Rosie Fortescue rounded up the pack in an on-trend gingham midi dress, and matching wedge heels - which she jazzed up with a handbag on a playful chain, adorned with colourful pom poms.
