Ms Curvaceous UK 2013
On Sunday I attended Ms Curvaceous UK at the Camden Centre in Kings Cross.
This event was unlike any of the other fashion/bloggers events that I have been to recently, as soon as I walked in I was greeted with the smell of West Indian food and immediately thought of my childhood, I straight away bumped into some familiar faces which pleased me no end
Syreeta Badu fashion designer, Gemma Cruickshank fashion designer, Hollie Pretty Big Butterfies, and Debz Wannabe Princess
I wasn’t sure what to wear to the event so I ended up keeping the outfit really simple and focusing on the makeup. I wore an Evans skater dress, leggings and a pair of flat brown ankle boots again from Evans
The jacket/cape is from Topshop… and will feature in a future UCantWearThat Blog Post!
I enjoyed the whole night, the fashion, food and entertainment were all fantastic.
There were performances by Bashy, James Anderson, Che Lingo and Afro Beats artist Ezi Emela (who I really really enjoyed)
Ezi Emela – My favourite performance of the night
There were 18 beautiful finalists competing for the title of Ms Curvaceous and it was lovely to see them all walking the runway in some amazing fashions from Syreeta Badu, Dea London.
Above are my personal faves from the Syreeta Badu Collection.
I was happy (as I always am) to see plus size women being celebrated, I would however have liked to see some even more curvy women in this competition , which I think has less to do with the event organisers and more to do with what the industry describe as plus size… but that’s a separate issue.

All in all I have a really enjoyable evening and am really looking forward to attending again next year, I’m going to be on the lookout for similar event… if anyone knows of any please let me know.
Thanks for reading xxxx
