Breakfast at The Savoy With Geri

The reasons for our attendance at Geri Halliwell & Next's swimwear launch was tenuous at best; We love Geri Halliwell & were fascinated to see what The Savoy looked like post it's £100million make over. In our eagerness we bagged ourselves top-notch seats, sitting amongst the creme de la creme of womenswear press, or at least the ones who wanted a free breakfast.
(which FYI was mini eggs benedict, bacon rolls & trays of pastries)
After a brief introduction from an enthusiastic compere the models paraded about in various states of undress, the words 'you'll look a million dollars' ringing in our heads.
We couldn't quite negotiate how a £30 boob tube would manage that but we were willing to suspend belief for this enjoyable hour.
At the end Geri (dressed in winter appropriate playsuit & espadrilles) gave a quick speech on how she wanted to dress real women or words to that effect (We were trying to catch the attention of the waiters by this point) The ensuing scrum to get a picture with Miss Halliwell was brilliant. Why a whole room of intelligent women & gays turn into screaming fans at the sight of an ex Spice Girl we will never quite understand. Clearly Next do.
