18 Dec Beauty Editor Lunch with Dame Joan Collins @ Daphne’s
Wow, what a December it has been! This time of year can quieten down a lot for many businesses but here at Alex Silver PR, we’ve had a super busy month filled with press meetings, Christmas send outs and of course a few mulled wines in between. It’s for that reason that we’re only now getting the chance the sit-down and tell you all about a very exciting event which we hosted last month!
On Thursday the 30th of November, we arranged a lunch with the fabulous Dame Joan Collins and her range Timeless Beauty for 10 very lucky Beauty Editors. When choosing a location, we wanted a cosy, private dining room with spectacular food so we decided to use the private dining room at Daphne’s in South Kensington. They certainly delivered on the cosy vibe! Guests arrived to a roaring fire and beautifully set table complete with winter bouquets.
Dining In Style
Guests joined us from a selection of our favourite beauty publications including Cosmopolitan, InStyle, You Magazine, My Weekly and Fabulous Magazine to name a few. Vodka and passion fruit welcome cocktails awaited guests, followed by canapes starters of Scallops with Pangrattato, Chilli & Garlic, Caprese Salad, Mushroom Arancini and Prosciutto Cantaloupe Melon & Mint.
Dame Joan Collins arrived with Alex Silver. She was wearing a gorgeous dress and jacket combination paired with her signature bright lipstick looking as fabulous as ever!
Then it was time for the all-important beauty questions! Moving around the table our guests asked Dame Joan their burning beauty questions. Talk spanned everything from plans for 2018; why Dame Joan decided to create her own cosmetic range; her winter beauty essentials; how to look glamorous at any age and even which lipstick Joan would recommend Megan Markle from Divine Lips Lipstick collection (Sabrina FYI!). The lipsticks are £18.00 each from the website or from M&S and Urban Retreat.
On to the main course of Devonshire Chicken, Mushroom Risotto or Fillet of Seabass complimented by a crisp white wine. For dessert, we topped off the wonderful lunch with Tiramisu which was v.tasty (you’ve got to choose an Italian dessert when you eat at such an iconic Italian restaurant).
What a wonderful way to finish the year with Dame Joan Collins and her Timeless Beauty collection. Check out the products for yourself here. We’re looking forward to planning lots more exciting events for our lovely clients in 2018.
