Sir Trevor McDonald, Fabrice Muamba, Eddie Kadi & More

On the 27th of October, I attended the BEFFTA Awards an event only by invitation. This was my second  experience and I have been looking forward to it since the launch party at Mayfair. Before the event, a congratulations message was posted on Eighteen Forever Facebook page for newlywed Fabrice Muamba. It was a surprise meeting him. The event was as always spectacular with lots of entertainments and surprises. I can tell you Fabrice is one of the nicest, gentleman I have ever met. When asked for a picture, he looked unexpectedly surprised and of course willing. I thought that was really humble of him. He presented an award and thanked everyone for their support throughout his ordeal. Sir Trevor McDonald was present to receive  a lifetime achievement award. His speech was inspiring yet full of humour. He joked about aiming for "Best Male Model" but missed out. Really?  Moving on....a surprise performance from Star Boy Nathan and his mother Gil who was super entertaining and a little bit manic. But it was great!! Other top personalities were present- Lamar, May7even, Adebayo Jones, presenters, designers, models and more.......

Sir Trevor McDonald inspired me with his speech during his award for Lifetime Achievement in Television *special moments*

The funniest guy ever- Eddie Kadi host the show with founder of BEFFTA Awards Pauline Long. Eddie Kadi is a record breaker- He happens to be the first African Comedian to sell out tickets for his comedy show at the O2 Arena. Edz-dazzling!!!!

With my friend Nancy- who came to support me on the night. Thanks girl!!
I opted for a Black PU and lace panel bustier peplum dress from River Island. I heart the straps- they are detailed in gold florals. 

The guy in the middle is a photographer who decided to take a picture with someone else's award. What a grim!!

With May7even- If you don't know who she is then Google it. She is an Afrobeat/RnB singer based in London. Her first single was in the top 40 UK hits chart 2011. She won best female artist at this year's BEFFTA- well done!!

One of the guest at the award ceremony and finalist at Top Model of Colour UK 2012. This dress is slim fit to her figure but the hair and accessories should have been given extra attention.
