Ralph Lauren Hosts A Star-Studded Pre-Wimbledon Bash

We have to admit it: as much we look forward to watching our favourite players hit the court for Wimbledon, what we really get excited about are the parties in the run up to the big event. Case in point: Ralph Lauren threw a star-studded event of epic proportions last night in partnership with British Vogue. Proving that Wimbledon is no longer just about tennis, the American brand brought sporting stars, musicians, models and Hollywood’s finest all under one roof at a glam reception at Kensington’s Palace’s Orangery.

All eyes were on Kate Moss’s little sister, Lottie who attended the event in a chic red strapless dress and classic metallic Mary-Jane sandals. Showing off her model credentials, the 17 year-old was a natural in front of the camera, striking a pose for the waiting paps.

This isn’t the first time Lottie has made an appearance at big fashion bash, though. We’ve spotted her at countless events over the last few weeks and, following mega spreads in fashion mags like Teen Vogue and i-D, she made her runway debut back in March at the Sonia Rykiel autumn/winter show in Paris.

Lottie wasn’t the only model in attendance. Heavyweights like Erin O’Conner, Jade Parfit and Laura Bailey rubbed shoulders with young models on the block like Laura Mullen, Vogue cover girl Sam Rollinson and British model Charlotte Wiggins. Fashion designers descended on the event en masse: think Monolo Blahnik, Giles Deacon and Charlotte Olympia designer, Charlotte Dellal.

Jessica Chastain added a little Hollywood glamour to proceedings proving that an LBD is totally appropriate for a summer cocktail party in her belted, knee length black frock. All eyes were on The Saturday’s star Mollie King who went unconventional with her look too. The blonde beauty showed exactly why the fashion set have their eyes firmly on her style, as she stepped out sporting a belted halter neck Ralph Lauren frock that perfect accentuated her tiny waist.

One fashion extravaganza down, many more to go…
