A Taste Of Summer With Louise Roe At Ted Baker London's 25th Anniversary Bash

It actually felt like summer as we walked up to our 25th anniversary party for Ted Baker London at its Fifth Avenue flagship. Inside, the bright, floral dresses, tops, and bathing suits had us almost convinced it was July. (The ample helpings of Hendrick's Gin mixed with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and sweets from Hotel Chocolat didn't hurt either.)
In the middle of it all was Louise Roe, dealing out summer styling tips, mingling with the R29 faithful, and generally looking like $10 million bucks. We already knew she was stylish, stunning, and charming, but fun, too? The lady's the whole package.

Anyway, upstairs Roe was the ideal host to all the ladies who came out to grab a few summery pieces at a solid 25 percent off while downstairs Thomas P. Farley (a.k.a. Mister Manners) set the boys who showed up for some serious styling challenges. Every half hour, the guys were sent onto the floor to put together a quick, natty outfit with the best of the bunch winning a few sharp men's accessories. High-speed attempts at dandyism make for — believe us — a fine spectator sport.
Click on for shots of a smashing evening, but don't just sit back and watch the fun. Come over here for your chance to win a fantastic vacation from our favorite British import. The summer can only get better.
