We got to the Topshop Unique show nice and early this afternoon. Two hours early to be precise, as we were given the opportunity to take a sneak peek behind the scenes as the last-minute show preparations were in full swing. Jourdan Dunn & co were still in hair and make-up when we arrived at the backstage tent in the beautiful Topshop Show Space in Bedford Square Gardens, WC1. What made it even better is that we were joined by What I Heart Today blogger Lily Pebbles, who was equally keen to listen to make-up artist Hannah Murray describe the Spring Summer 2013 Unique look. Accessories were lined up in neat little rows, as were pastries, bagels and mouth-watering savoury croissants. Although we didn't devour any backstage treats we did make a pit stop at the Topshop cafe for salad and juice (fashion week diet, huh!) before eagerly awaiting the arrival of some of our fashion faves.
Elle Fanning was one of the first on the scene and she was dressed as a school girl with a cute tartan bow (keep an eye out for our interview with the mini Hollywood starlet when it goes live later today). Pixie Geldof and Daisy Lowe arrived together - Daisy giving us a good eyeful of her ridiculously long legs in an Autumn Winter 2012 jumper worn as a dress. Anna Dello Russo kept the street style bloggers happy by posing in one of her trademark fascinators, while Olivia Palermo look poised and polished as ever in paisley Topshop trousers. Check out our gallery above for a taster of the behind the scenes action.
