We take a closer look at last week’s Miss Hoi Polloi Pageant at Ace Hotel London Shoreditch
To celebrate the close of London Fashion Week, Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel played host to The Miss Hoi Polloi Pageant, a re-enactment of scenes from the 1968 documentary ‘The Queen.’ Judged by the likes of Christopher Kane, Roksanda Ilincic, Ed Marler, Erdem Moralioglu, Henry Holland, Princess Julia, Judy Blame, Jonathan Saunders, Stephen Jones, Brix Smith-Start, Reba Maybury, and Daisy Lowe, the guest list was just as impressive with the likes of Hamish Bowles, Caroline Sieber, Fred Butler, Bobby Abley and Gary Card all in attendance. Munching on grilled cheese and braised beef sandwiches followed by milk ice cream sundaes, along with a generous helping of Hoi Polloi’s revitalising Fashion Week cocktail, Fantabulosa, those in attendance experienced an unforgettable night.
Directed by Jonny Woo who played Flawless Sabrina, Miss Woo’s wardrobe was by Giles and Wonderland’s Fashion Director, Matthew Josephs styled the pageant. The make up was created by Daniel Sallstrom and the M.A.C Pro Team, whilst WAH Nails were in charge of talons and Xavier Roide soundtracked the event. The winner was Miss Philadelphia aka James Davison, who has just guest edited ‘Clobber,’ Hoi Polloi’s new monthly newspaper.
